What is your Virtualization and Cloud Services Strategy

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

The current spring savings are a great reason to take closer look at Virtualization and Cloud Services strategies, but if saving some coin isn't enough to get you thinking about them, perhaps these three major factors in the marketplace will:

1. Virtualization has evolved beyond simple server consolidation and occurs at many levels within your organization, including Compute (CPU, RAM), Network and Storage Infrastructure.

2. At the same time cloud-based services such as Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint, Azure and third party application providers have matured and grown considerably in the marketplace. Additionally, new cloud-based services have grown quickly to offer robust solutions for:

- Cloud-managed Wireless services, like Cisco Meraki
- Cloud-managed VoIP and SIP voice services, like FreedomVoice and nexVortex
- Cloud-managed Firewall and Security services, like Cisco Meraki and Cisco Cloud Web Security

3. Pricing models for many of the cloud-based solutions are more cost-effective than traditional purchasing.
