Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Analyzing service and service providers, part of Cloud Computing First Look (2012).
When considering a move to the cloud, it's important to understand the services and service …providers available to people and organizations of different levels. In this lesson we'll …identify the three levels and some of the cloud services and service providers tailored to each. …Let's begin with those three levels. Firstly, there are a number of cloud services that …are targeted at individuals or even small businesses, and you're probably already familiar …with many of them like Gmail and Acrobat. …Then comes the mid-market or medium-sized businesses, cloud services and providers in …this range will be less familiar, but there are specific tools and services that can benefit …organizations that fall into this category.…
Lastly is the enterprise class or larger organizations who have their own set of cloud offerings …and their own set of challenges when considering a move to the cloud. …Now the easiest way to move to the cloud is at an individual or a small business level. …There are plenty of services out there that can help individuals and small businesses. …
David also presents an overview of migration and common cloud technologies as you contemplate a move to the cloud, including Google Apps, Microsoft Windows Live, and more. The final chapter outlines how to evaluate the ongoing effectiveness of the cloud for your business.
