Customers have foundational questions that need to be answered What is Cloud Computing? How will cloud impact my policies and processes? “It seems like a new name for something that's been around for a long time.” “A server in the cloud is the simplest way to think of it.” “I am not sure how I can use the cloud or if it will reduce costs.” “Am I ‘on’ the cloud, or ‘in’ the cloud?” “Maybe I’m an idiot, but I have no idea what anyone is talking about. What is [cloud]?" – Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO Conversations around cloud computing can be messy, because of confusion on definitions of ‘the cloud’ and how to utilize the technology.
Cloud computing provides opportunities for businesses to optimize uptime, agility, and efficiency New Economics Reduced Management Increased Productivity No patching, maintenance Faster deployment Robust multi-layered security Reliability and fault-tolerance Pay for what you use Lower and transparent costs Shift from capex and opex Accelerate speed to value Latest software for users Internet collaboration Anywhere access Instant self-provisioning
