After virtualization, cloud computing may be the next logical step for many enterprise organizations. What savvy CIOs are looking for today is a roadmap with clear directions on how to get there. To help, Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, has identified six steps that simplify the journey to the cloud.
“Enterprise organizations are clearly taking the steps needed to become virtualized, and many already have a solid converged infrastructure foundation in place. The problem is, they’ve stalled there; they’ve stopped just short of implementing a cloud strategy that can give them the kinds of IT efficiencies they wanted when they started the virtualization process,” says Brett Anderson, director of enterprise computing for Logicalis US. “The key to continuing along that path is to implement a few important steps that will simplify the move to the cloud and to combine those steps with the right hardware and software from leading vendors like HP and VMware. Proven leaders like these in consolidation, virtualization, and software optimization and development coupled with a solid cloud strategy and deployment plan create a roadmap to the cloud that meets the business needs each company uniquely identifies for itself.”
