Time: 11:00 AM EDT
Everyone is moving to the Cloud …but how safe is your Cloud connectivity? The benefits of the Cloud are compelling: costly IT infrastructure can be abandoned in favor of a “pay as you go” IT consumption model that quickly scales to meet the insatiable appetite for critical Enterprise applications. But, Enterprise businesses cannot afford compromised data or down-time. Recent events in Cloud computing suggest that the Cloud could be a perilous place … vulnerable to the inconsistencies of the Internet and even the weather. To prepare for migration to the Cloud, the first step is to develop a comprehensive networking strategy. A robust wide area network is key to delivering a secure, scalable and predictable network experience to support Cloud based applications.
In this Webinar, you will learn how to mitigate risk associated with safe, secure connections to your private Cloud applications, and how to add visibility, bandwidth on demand, and control to your network connection. You will also gain insight from a leading industry analyst on the outlook for migration to the Cloud and considerations for network planning.
