Session Description

So, are you considering moving to the Cloud? In what form are you likely to start that journey? SaaS, PaaS or Infrastructure? At Computerlinks we have been busy building a channel friendly Public Cloud infrastructure which our resellers can take to market through co-branding or white labelling. Throughout our journey we have had to consider many different topics from selecting data centres and hardware to build or buy decisions for orchestration, and how to tackle quality of service and security. In this whistle-stop tour I will take you through our journey and talk about what you should be asking your service provider if you are considering Infrastructure as a Service, either as an end user or partner.
