Is There a Right Way to Build a Cloud?
Prabhakar Gopalan

In the world of instant gratification, customers want IT now and they are going to public clouds to get it. The issue facing most enterprise IT shops is how to build out their own cloud infrastructure? Key questions include:

• Do I use old infrastructure or buy new infrastructure for my cloud?
• Do I design it for the lab or for production use? for IaaS or PaaS or both?
• Is it virtual machines only or a combination of virtual and physical?
• Does it incorporate public cloud resources or is it just a private cloud

The wrong answer to any of these questions will dramatically increase costs and time of deploying a cloud infrastructure. Come learn how CA Technologies has developed cloud solutions that can address these issues so you can quickly and cost effectively deploy a cloud.
