Cloud webinar series part 1: Cut through the cloud clutter

If you've been focused on consolidation, virtualization, and utilization, you may be limiting your own cloud potential.


In part 1 of this series, you'll learn how to become focused on agility, scalability, and IT service delivery to ensure a successful private or hybrid cloud deployment that makes the most of your existing virtualization and consolidation efforts.

We'll start with planning—determining goals and objectives—and then transition to hands-on work that prepares you for flexible application provisioning and delivery across shared resource pools by evaluating solutions. By the end of this webinar, you'll know how to:

  • Set cloud goals based on business objectives, including security and compliance requirements.
  • Select the most suitable target workloads for evolving to the cloud.
  • Plan technology and process evolution to the cloud.
  • Begin technology evaluations, including proof-of-concepts, as appropriate.

Registrants will receive a link to the on-demand recording after the live event and a corresponding whitepaper for part 1 of the "From virtualization to cloud" series.
