Welcome to Cloud Strategy’s 2016 Summer issue! We really outdid ourselves this time.
To begin, Allan Leinwald of ServiceNow is here with an in-depth look at cloud architecture for our cover story. But there is more! Kiran Bondalapati from ZeroStack writes about the commoditization of infrastructure; Sumeet Sabharwal of NaviSite writes on the opportunities available to independent software vendors in the cloud; Mark Nunnikhoven of Trend Micro talks about the trend of the everywhere data center and the danger of dismissing the hybrid cloud; Alan Grantham of Forsythe writes about the cloud conversations companies should be having; Peter Matthews of CA Technologies, Anthony Shimmin of AIMES Grid Services, and Balazs Somoskoi of Lufthansa Systems share their tips for selecting the right cloud services provider; Adam Stern, founder and CEO of Infinitely Virtual writes about the importance of cloud storage speed; Shea Long of TierPoint tackles the hot topic of DRaaS; and Steve Hebert, CEO of Nimbix writes on the challenges CIO face in balancing public, private, and hybrid clouds.
In addition, we have a case study from Masergy on its successful implementation of a high-speed network to implement Big Data analytics.
Another great issue, if we say so ourselves.
