Cost reduction and improved IT responsiveness are at the forefront of discussions related to private clouds, but there’s another issue central to this approach’s value proposition: better infrastructure control. This session will explore seven key ways private clouds can be leveraged to break traditional cost structures, promote greater business agility and reduce the constraints of vendor lock-in through new models of application support. We will discuss the evolution from clusters to grids to clouds, and share how leading Wall Street, technology, biotech and telecom companies are approaching private clouds, and outline best practices for successful planning and deployment.
