    5 Trends to Consider for Hybrid Cloud Hosting: An End User's Perspective
    Jonathan Sharp, VP, Latisys and Rod Hill, Enterprise Information Systems, Graduate School Recorded: Oct 9 2013 46 mins
    While some companies are achieving great savings with the cloud, many others are still on the fence. And some early “public cloud” adopters are beginning to turn back towards dedicated infrastructure. But one thing is for certain—cloud is the new IT infrastructure and computing paradigm and the impact is undeniable.

    In this webinar we’ll examine the accelerating trend towards “hybrid cloud hosting”—where today’s CIOs have begun examining their workloads and opting for a hybrid mix of cloud, hosting and data center services — with workloads spread across a variety of delivery platforms but managed as a converged, federated IT infrastructure.

    On Premise? Outsourced? Dedicated? Cloud? Harness the Power of "Hybrid" for a True "All-of-the-Above" Approach to IT Infrastructure.

    With so much focus on – and hype around – the cloud, we seem to have forgotten that for most businesses IT infrastructure remains a mix of on-premise, outsourced, physical and virtual components that must be optimized into a seamless hybrid environment. Featuring IaaS experts from Latisys and HP, we'll look at how CIOs and CTOs are allocating workloads, applications and data across a diverse infrastructure today – using every tool in their arsenal in an effort to maximize legacy assets, optimize limited IT budgets and leverage technology advancements to make their business more effective and responsive.

    As the cloud value proposition becomes more apparent to enterprises, the focus shifts to implementation. This webinar unravels the benefits, tradeoffs and misconceptions associated with cloud computing, equipping IT executives and enterprise decision makers with a framework for evaluating their current IT infrastructure and making more informed decisions about how to best leverage the cloud. We’ll frame the debate between the public and private cloud, expanding the definition of “hybrid” to include a “portfolio” approach to XaaS—in which CIOs and CTOs allocate workloads, applications and data across a variety of outsourced solutions to truly right-size and optimize IT.

    As chief architect of Latisys’ national data center footprint and services platform, Christian Teeft is uniquely positioned to unpack the key factors that any enterprise must consider when forming and executing their cloud and XaaS strategy—including high availability computing and storage requirements, security and compliance demands, price sensitivity, as well as expected scalability needs.
