Many enterprises today are implementing the cloud, or at least considering it to gain the benefits of multi-tenant, hosted resources – whether it’s software, platforms or infrastructure.
Cloud data center solutions not only provide results for optimized physical infrastructures, but also enable organizations to be more responsive, improve operational efficiency and increase strategic relevance to their business. TMCnet was there this week to report on all the latest cloud data center news. Here are a few highlights:
