    Transitioning Data and Apps to the Cloud

    Click through for five tips CIOs need to keep in mind when transitioning data and applications to the cloud, as identified by Silver Peak.

Last year, Gartner predicted that end-user spending on public cloud services was expected to grow to more than $180 billion in 2013. The decision to transition to a system of backing up data to the cloud or accessing SaaS applications and services is no longer a question of 'what if?' for organizations but 'when?'

As businesses begin this transition, the most important thing to keep in mind is how cloud storage will impact the network. This could be an internal network between employees, or an external network with current and future customers. Network problems are inevitable as businesses start to transition more and more of their daily applications and data backup to the cloud. Overcoming the adverse effects that the cloud creates, such as distance and network quality, is essential. SaaS services increase latency, which can often decrease performance, resulting in unhappy users and workers, which inevitably lose productivity as they are forced to wait for data to be transferred.
