Public cloud services offer tremendous flexibility to extend, and sometimes replace, on-premise servers with low-cost, pay-as-you-go resources in the cloud. Key benefits include the elimination of upfront capital expense, ability to access resources immediately, and flexibility to scale capacity up or down, as needed.
In the past, the typical users of public cloud services were development groups and independent business units. Today, increasing numbers of corporate IT shops are leveraging public cloud, particularly Amazon Web Services (AWS), in conjunction with VMware on-premise.
Are you a VMware shop interested in using Hyper-V, KVM, XenServer, or Amazon Web Services (AWS) to cut costs and increase agility?
