The more likely case is that IT is being bypassed; chances are the company’s users are signing onto Amazon or other public cloud providers for easy-access resources. That means IT is starting to lose control and the lines of business are slowly taking the matter into their own hands. This is the death spiral for an IT department, particularly when C-suite execs in nearly every enterprise and higher-end midmarket companies are at least talking about how to implement a cloud strategy today.

CIOs and IT pros are being called upon to rapidly determine how their companies can best benefit from a cloud strategy. Adding roadblocks to their adoption roadmaps, however, is a host of myths that make it hard for IT managers to fully embrace all the cloud has to offer. Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, has compiled a list of the top eight myths surrounding private cloud computing, and has debunked those myths one by one to help put clients’ minds at ease that a cloud strategy can be right for them.

“Determining which cloud strategy is the right one for any individual company is a complex assignment that affects all of the company’s IT systems and infrastructure, as well as the way the company does business today and into the future,” says Kevin Gruneisen, vice president, Data Center Solutions for Logicalis. “Because of the significance of implementing a cloud roadmap, it’s critical for solution providers like Logicalis who have the experience in cloud computing to bring the myths – the stumbling blocks – out in the open and address them one by one.”

Some of the most common objections Logicalis hears from clients concerned about implementing a cloud strategy include the following eight myths.
