One response to “The Transient Nature Of Private Clouds”

  1. Jeremy Hodge

    The public vs. private debate is really a question of needs, and there are a few things to think about:

    -What workloads are being considered?

    -How much ownership do you want over the infrastructure?

    -How quickly do you want to be up and running?

    -Will cloud be treated as a capital or operational expense?

    Public clouds are ideal for a variety of situations including conferencing, continuity and data recovery, customer relationship management (CRM) or salesforce automation. They also offer improvement in system reliability and availability, as well as enable consumption-based pricing.
