Businesses today are being squeezed from every direction, but information is still the life-blood of modern commerce and access to information means everything. In challenging economic times, budgets are stretched, but management teams still expect optimum output, and this is placing a huge burden on IT departments to innovate and meet business needs. The data centre is at the heart of this innovation, and rightly so – it is the heart and lungs of business in the 21st Century.

The growth in data, Internet-connected devices and server workloads continues to grow, nearly exponentially and end users today have a greater ability today to consume and create tremendous amounts of data outside the data centre and, therefore, the expectation of information-on-demand is becoming increasingly widespread. We all want access to our data and applications on any device, at any time and in any location. As organizations evolve to accommodate this new reality, the challenges they face are abundant:•
How do I scale my network to align with a dynamic business environment?•
How do I create a rock-solid foundation for my most demanding applications?•
How do I maximize my investment in current infrastructure as I build for the future?

Business imperatives such as these are driving the demand for cloud-based solutions. The promise of cloud is that it enables organizations to efficiently deploy needed services that can scale and adapt over time within an economic model that is appropriate to one’s business and financial resources. With the development of private, hybrid and public clouds, there are an abundance of technologies and business models available for delivering cloud-based services. But are they all equally achievable and beneficial? How do you know which one is right for your organization and what is the most effective approach for implementing a cloud-based strategy? The answers will surprise you and will provide a road map to avoid business and technology cul de sacs.
