Things To Know Before Moving Your Enterprise To The Cloud

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Rackspace | December 6, 2012 10:00 am

So you’re thinking a move to the cloud might be in your future? You’ve come to the right place! But before you move your enterprise business to the cloud, brush up on your cloud knowledge to be sure you have all the information you need. This is important stuff and we’re here to help.

Once a month, Rackspace Advisory Services brings you up close and personal with a panel of our cloud computing experts for our virtual Enterprise Cloud Forum[1], an hour-long virtual roundtable that features a handful of rotating experts discussing a variety of cloud topics, followed by 30 minutes of open Q&A.

We kicked off the series just last month when we sat down with three Rackspace Advisory Services team members to learn about how Rackspace central IT is working on our own internal move to the cloud. Lisa Larson, Vice President of Enterprise Technical Sales for Rackspace, led the panel through a great discussion and answered some key questions about moving to the cloud. Listen to the mp3 copy of the session here[2], or download the slide deck from the presentation.

And be sure to mark your calendars for the next Enterprise Cloud Forums December 12th[3] and January 9th[4], and we plan to continue these roundtable discussions every month throughout 2013. Registration is limited to 50 registrations, so we encourage you to sign up early.

What are some questions you have regarding a big move to the cloud? Let us know and we may answer them in upcoming session.
