There are hundreds of cloud services available to organizations. In many cases, the capabilities of the service matter more to decision makers than the infrastructure itself. As an example, the underlying infrastructure that supports common business software such as Salesforce, is rarely scrutinized, as the product is trusted solely on the brand’s reputation.
Choosing the right cloud service for your organization can be time consuming and effort intensive. For this paper, we will focus on existing applications (vs. new application services) that require high levels of performance and security, but also enable customers to meet specific cost expectations.
