New GlassHouse Technologies Whitepaper Outlines How to Implement a Multi-tiered Cloud Service Strategy

GlassHouse Technologies:

What:

     

Cloud technologies open up new avenues of data and application availability. However, the confusion over how to adopt and realize the benefits of the cloud has been intensified by the complexity of new services and the tendency for vendors to spin existing technology as something new. And simplistic views such as public versus private do not address the reality of complex enterprises that have a myriad of data, application and infrastructure types that need to leverage ‘the cloud’ in different ways. To help organizations sort through all of the “cloud washing,” GlassHouse Technologies has published a whitepaper, “Implementing a Multi-tiered Cloud Service Strategy,” putting different cloud approaches under the microscope. The whitepaper puts into context the advantages of a multi-tiered cloud approach as a way to prioritize workloads and achieve greater cost benefits.

 

Why:

Navigating the complexities of the cloud, including choosing between public, private and hybrid approaches, can be difficult for organizations looking for the model that best fits their business needs. This whitepaper explains how a multi-tiered strategy allows organizations to take calculated risks, while benefiting from the broad spectrum of services the cloud offers. Additionally, a unified approach enables IT departments to provide managers with the cost savings and flexibility of cloud services that is appropriate for their workloads.

 

Who:

Organizations looking to better understand different approaches to the cloud and achieve the greatest service levels, cost efficiency and business benefits out of their cloud investments will benefit from the whitepaper.

 

When:

GlassHouse executives are immediately available to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various cloud approaches, including implementing a multi-tiered cloud strategy.

 

Where:

The whitepaper is now available on GlassHouse’s website. The company will also be on hand at the 2012 Gartner Data Center Conference, taking place December 3-6, 2012 in Las Vegas, and at the UP 2012 Cloud Computing Conference, taking place December 12 in San Francisco, to discuss the content.
