Five Data Center And IT Infrastructure Lessons From The Cloud Giants

    Why Read This Report

    Amazon. Salesforce.com. Microsoft. Rackspace. The economics and efficiencies of the world's largest cloud and hosting service providers are an aspiration for some in enterprise IT — but a bludgeon for others. If you fall into the latter category, the capabilities of these digital giants seem like a nagging reminder that you will never match their efficiencies and should just fold up your data centers and dump all your workloads into the "cloud." If you feel this way, cheer up. Forrester interviewed many of the leading web, cloud, and hosting providers and uncovered five key lessons enterprise IT can apply within its own environments. While you do not have their scale of purchasing power, IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals can benefit by adopting their approach to infrastructure architecture and operational process. From standardization to automation, I&O professionals should use this report to learn and adopt valuable practices from the digital giants that operate IT infrastructure at scale.
