'Cloud Computing – Extending Your IT Infrastructure'
Cloud computing has moved beyond the early adoption phase, as enterprises are now using – or plan to use – cloud for their production environments. Enterprise adoption, however, brings a stricter set of requirements and expectations. Though enterprise customers see the clear business benefits of cloud – lower costs and increased business agility – they are wary of cloud services that don’t adequately address their requirements. In this session, NaviSite will share its experiences as an enterprise-class cloud provider, and discuss the feature sets and requirements of a production-ready cloud, including role-based access; memory management; disaster recovery and business continuity; security; and support for hybrid clouds.
