Click through for five important best practices IT pros should employ when choosing a cloud provider to serve their enterprise business needs, as identified by Logicalis.

CIOs considering moving mission-critical applications to the cloud must fully understand the inherent differences between cloud services created for consumer use and those designed to serve the more demanding needs of enterprise businesses. Well-publicized outages point out the need for enterprise-ready cloud services designed from the ground up with the enterprise in mind. These disruptions draw attention to the need for enterprise IT pros to make important decisions about where to locate cloud-based mission-critical infrastructure based on a thorough understanding of the associated selection criteria. To help, Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, has created a list of five important best practices IT pros should employ when choosing a cloud provider to serve their enterprise business needs.

“When downtime is simply not an option, it is important that enterprise IT managers choose their cloud partners wisely, based on predefined criteria and industry best practices,” says Kevin Gruneisen, senior director, Cloud and Data Center Solutions for Logicalis. “At the very least, an enterprise organization needs a cloud solution that offers significant performance capabilities, is secure and redundant, managed and monitored 24/7, and is flexible enough to be configured to meet the business’ exact needs. Even in a multi-tenant public cloud environment, each enterprise customer should be isolated and treated by the provider as if the cloud exists solely for them.”
