ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - Latisys, a leading national provider of outsourced IT solutions delivered on a high-density, high-security platform, today announced it is releasing a new eBook about the Cloud.
Titled, "How to Take Advantage of the Cloud: Your Guide to Achieving Value and Performance," the eBook looks past cloud "noise" in the marketplace to understand why some companies are achieving great efficiencies and why some are not. The eBook asks and answers this question: "what is the key to using the cloud to your advantage rather than following the crowd to an overpriced, disappointing non-event?"
The eBook will be released on the Latisys website on August 7. However, Latisys is previewing excerpts in its new company blog -- The Latisphere -- launched today. Latisys created the Latisphere as a place to find and share information and opinions of interest with anyone involved in the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) ecosystem. The Latisphere will examine the evolution of outsourced infrastructure services -- where it came from, where it's going -- and will highlight examples of innovative service delivery encompassing people, process and technology.
The eBook draws upon Latisys' experience as a national provider of outsourced IaaS solutions ranging from colocation to the cloud. The eBook will share actionable insight and lessons from the real world -- with a singular goal -- to help enterprises make smarter choices about IT resource provisioning -- whatever those choices may be.
"The smartest companies address the cloud on their own terms, incorporating it into an IT strategy that addresses the unique challenges facing their industry and position," said Christian Teeft, VP of Engineering for Latisys. "They identify the primary concerns -- such as cost control, agility, or scalability -- that will drive the future improvement they need. Then they study their existing workloads and capacity to identify gaps the cloud can productively fill. They listen to the concerns of both their IT experts and budget controllers to achieve cost savings without sacrificing performance or compliance. Then, with specific objectives in mind, they're able to establish a long-term partnership with a smart, responsive cloud service provider."
"For these companies, the cloud is not a fad or short term solution. Instead it's a logical step in the evolution of their methods of empowering the enterprise with new levels of cost control, agility, and scalability," Teeft added.
