Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video The staffing benefits of the cloud, part of Cloud Computing First Look (2012).
It only takes a few minutes to spin up a new server with cloud computing versus the months …it might take to plan, prepare, test and deploy your own servers. …By using the cloud, your users can access data and applications from anywhere in the …world with a simple Internet connection. If you signed up with a cloud service provider …and you have a service level agreement, you're guaranteed that level of service and the best …part is if you report any bugs, it's the vendor who fixes them. So you don't have to deal …with the patch yourself, in fact, it will most likely be done in a way that is transparent …to you and your organization.…
With cloud computing, your service provider will want to keep you satisfied and keep you …as a customer, so it's in their best interest to ensure the application is always being …improved. In the realm of software as a service, small changes can be happening constantly, …adding up over time instead of a huge patch that can cost you time and money to implement. …
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.
