Demystifying the Cloud

Cloud Computing remains a subject shrouded in mystery and yet it isn’t hard to see why this particular IT model appeals to so many CEOs and senior executives.  There is a growing awareness of the need for a company to be able to adapt rapidly and cost efficiently in response to changes in the business environment and, with the economy in such a fragile state, anything that can cut capital requirements has an obvious appeal. 

While the technology behind Cloud Computing is well established, the market is relatively new and some believe that 2011 could be the year in which businesses move from merely talking about Cloud Computing to putting at least some of their IT services into the Cloud.

A presentation from Quest Computing will give delegates an understanding of Cloud Computing and whether it is the right solution for you, and will seek to answer some important questions:

What are the benefits of a cloud solution over traditional IT models?

Is Cloud Computing the right solution for every business?

What about reliability, security, scalability and resilience of a cloud solution?

The session will also include a case study from Catalyst Computing Services on how they are helping one company to save £10,000s in hardware and communications costs by using Cloud Computing.
