How is cloud computing delivering greater flexibility and reducing IT costs for business?

VMware recently hosted IT industry analyst Maribel Lopez in an engaging live webcast, “Add Cloud to Your Business and Watch it Grow,”  focusing on the benefits of cloud computing and why companies of all sizes are seeing growth as a result of moving more and more workloads to the cloud.

Applicable to current VMware customers and others, this webcast focused on defining cloud, answered the question of “why cloud” and covered the benefits of cloud, such as:

  • Responsiveness:  Making business cloud initiatives portable and manageable
  • Ease of Onboarding Workload and Management:  Including reliable transfers of workload and data from private cloud to hybrid or public cloud and back
  • Security: vCloud Services deliver robust protection across private and public clouds, including network security
  • Compatibility and Interoperability:  Confidently support new and existing applications across clouds

In addition, the webcast provided an open discussion regarding the potential pitfalls of the cloud, as well as what to look for in a cloud service provider and how to use VMware Cloud Credits as an easy on-ramp to the cloud.
