Cloud Computing: A Case Study in Cost Savings

Apr 05, 2012, 13:52 ET from Micro Strategies

DENVILLE, N.J., April 5, 2012  /PRNewswire/ --Get to the core of today's most promoted IT technology—"The Cloud"—in two fast-paced hours. Instead of simply touting its promise, this course brings it down to earth in terms of documented costs, savings, and productivity—with an eye-opening review of basics (and myths), architecture options, performance testing, and an operation cost model. Better yet, you will evaluate those factors in the context of a scalable hybrid-cloud application—including how it evolved from a public cloud to hybrid-enabled private cloud concept to improve performance-per-dollar by four to eight times, while opening new revenue streams. Finally, gain personal insights for your company's cloud-computing plans through Q&A with the source behind that success.

  • Step-by-step technical considerations for evaluating your best cloud implementation options
