To The Cloud
The book addresses the what, why and how of enterprise cloud adoption. It lays out a four-step framework, leveraging the experience and best practices of Microsoft’s own IT group. The book delivers end-to-end business and technology guidance, describing how to analyse application portfolios to identify good cloud candidates, choose the right cloud models, consider architecture and security, and understand how shifting operations to the cloud affects budgeting and staffing.
This practical resource debunks myths, revealing that real clouds are more than just Web hosting, virtualisation, or the Internet itself rebranded. The book is supported by clear frameworks, graphics, tables, summaries and checklists to provide a practitioner’s guide to the cloud.
