Cloud, House, Hybrid: Where Are the Cost Savings?

Tuesday, March 19 | 11:30AM–12:15PM ET | Room 551
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
We'll discuss a case study showing how Rivier University approached the situation from a financial and performance perspective. With four on-premise campus VMWare clusters, high-level university officials asked to explore moving all the server farms to the cloud. What we found may surprise you! There are few perfect situations. The most likely scenario, at this time, is hybrids.

Outcomes: Define what a cloud platform actually is * Explore the advantages of being in the cloud * Identify if your environment static or dynamic (think what happens to e-commerce websites on Black Friday) * Look at what the numbers say
