About this talk

Cloud computing seems like the perfect solution for creating an efficient and eco-friendly data center -- you, personally, have no physical data center to manage or bills to pay for the facility. However, is that necessarily true? Is cloud computing a process efficient and energy efficient investment for data centers? Join this panel as industry thought leaders discuss whether you can be efficient and energy-conscious by adopting cloud computing. This panel will answer questions such as: - How much more efficiency does the cloud provide than physical, on-premise data centers? - How are you measuring efficiency after moving to a cloud provider? - What benchmarking should you do internally before deciding what's efficient or greener? - How will the transition from traditional data center to the cloud affect how the organization runs its business?
