Data Center Company EvoSwitch Provides CIO/CTO Strategic Hybrid Cloud Planning Input
Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 15 August 2017 – EvoSwitch, a Europe and U.S. based colocation data center provider with its partner-rich cloud interconnection platform, EvoSwitch OpenCloud, today releases a new white paper titled: ‘How to Build a Better Cloud –Planning.’ Aimed at CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors, the white paper provides expert-input to a business-driven planning process for weighing multi-cloud environments and implementing a hybrid cloud strategy.
As a colocation services provider with its data centers located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Manassas (Washington DC area) in the U.S., EvoSwitch serves a considerable amount of clients with hybrid cloud needs. That’s why the colocation company established its cloud marketplace, EvoSwitch OpenCloud, two years ago. Through this marketplace, EvoSwitch customers would be able to quickly and securely interconnect to a large number of other cloud platforms including AWS, Google and Azure.
Partly based on these OpenCloud, hybrid cloud customer experiences as well as cloud management expertise of the author himself, the EvoSwitch white paper released today provides CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors with business-driven guidance for successfully planning their hybrid cloud strategy. Titled ‘How to Build a Better Cloud –Planning,’ the white paper is written by seasoned data center services and cloud computing professional, Patrick van der Wilt, who serves as the Commercial Director for EvoSwitch.
EvoSwitch’s new white paper ‘How to Build a Better Cloud –Planning’ counts 30 pages and is available in English. It can be downloaded for free at: https://evoswitch.com/white_papers/build-a-better-cloud-part-1-planning/.
Detailed Hybrid Cloud Planning, Deep Buy-In
The EvoSwitch white paper addresses current hybrid cloud challenges and opportunities, and contains in-depth knowledge for CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors on successfully establishing the right planning processes for a hybrid cloud roadmap.
The author, Mr. Van der Wilt advocates that the following factors should be considered when selecting a solid private/public cloud balance and planning a migration towards a hybrid cloud environment: identifying business requirements; identifying hybrid cloud benefits and business outcomes; compliance management; (spread of) cost; identifying and modifying internal organizational capabilities; data sovereignty; asset review & management – both data and people; achieving harmony in connectivity between systems, data, services and hosting infrastructure; and selling the hybrid cloud strategy. He elaborates on that by providing specific tips on planning the appropriate hybrid cloud delivery model.
