Despite what you may have been told, cloud computing isn't just for startups and enterprises. [Midmarket companies and SMBs also use the cloud.]
However, as midmarket companies and SMBs know, advice about cloud deployments that holds true for enterprises or startups doesn't necessarily apply to businesses in the middle.
In a new eBook sponsored by Digital Realty | Telx titled "The Midmarket and SMB Guide to Cloud Computing," FierceCIO tackles cloud computing for midmarket companies and SMBs and explores a number of topics including:
- The different cloud options and why you should consider them
- How shifting to cloud can save you money—and what hidden costs to keep in mind
- Why the cloud, in theory, is much more secure than private environments—and how to make sure that the provider you choose is
- Why a hybrid deployment makes sense for many midmarket companies and SMBs
Frequently, many of these issues are discussed in the context of enterprises or agile startups, but less often in regards to midmarket companies and SMBs. Businesses of this size have unique challenges to contend with, not the least are smaller IT teams and budgets. Nonetheless, they still stand to benefit significantly from cloud computing, given the right approach.
