Cloud has become the go-to buzzword for IT infrastructure implementations. But there’s a lot more to developing a future-proof IT strategy than embracing a catchy word. If you’re going to implement a cloud-based strategy, you have a lot of very important decisions to make.
One of the biggest is whether you’re going to layer your infrastructure on top of one of the public clouds out there, sharing resources, attention, and possibly security problems with everyone else on the same cloud.
You might consider building out a private cloud, which provides all the benefits of cloud but remains under your control. If you choose the private cloud approach, do you build that infrastructure yourself or host it on a partner’s infrastructure, perhaps a company that’s already invested the heavy fixed CAPEX costs into building data centers and telecom interchanges.
