Cloud: 5 Lesson’s Learned

The Cloud is not just the Public Cloud:  It’s easy to think of the Cloud as just some place outside your organization to store data or run applications.  Fundamentally, the Cloud is a strategy that allows enterprises to change how they approach IT.

Clouds begin at Home:  Your goal is IT agility.  Agility is not predicated on rip and replace.  Consider transforming / evolving your infrastructure into a cloud based model (Private Cloud model).

Virtualization is Key:  The key to any Private Cloud deployment is virtualization.  Implement a highly virtualized environment to take full advantage of a cloud based infrastructure.  Remember though, Virtualization is not Cloud.

Open Standards:  Open is key wherever possible.  Look to open standards, or companies that based their architecture on open standards, whenever possible. 

Evolution is Possible:  Moving to cloud is an evolution.  It doesn’t have to be a revolution.
