Cloud computing - We all talk about it, but what exactly is it and how do we buy it?
In this episode of Buying Tech we talk about PCs, servers, apps and virtualization - and how these concepts relate to cloud computing for small, large and enterprise/government scale IT.
We will cover various types of cloud offerings and what they involve:
- Infrastructure As a Service (IaaS)
- Software as a service (SaaS)
- Storage as a Service (STaaS)
- Security as a Service (SECaaS),
- Platform as a Service (PaaS).
We also discuss key risks and issues to consider: are backups still important and what else do we need to think about if considering moving something - or everything - to the cloud? Connectivity, security, data privacy, planning for the future, contractual concerns and financial issues, as well as some of the pros and cons of cloud versus more traditional approaches to deploying and operating your IT systems.
