Become Cloud-Ready Post Windows Server 2003

Top Server Strategies to Ease Cloud Migration

by Patrick Renzi | Tuesday, July 07, 2015

As cloud adoption continues to accelerate, it appears that every company is moving at least some of its business-critical workloads from on-premises servers up into the ether. Use of public (or hybrid public-private) cloud infrastructure offers myriad benefits, but not every business is ready to take what for many seems like a leap of faith. For some, regulatory or governance considerations are keeping servers and storage on site; for others there’s a lack of clarity about the advantages that cloud migration really offers.

by Tim Allen | 07.01.15

Less than a year ago, Gartner characterized the mainstream market action surrounding software-defined networking (SDN) as “mostly just tire-kicking.” That assessment of the market, however, is fast becoming old news. IDC has forecast  that the “worldwide SDN market for the enterprise and cloud service provider segments will grow from $960 million in 2014 to over $8 billion by 2018.”
