On my travels in building an understanding of Cloud Computing and its relationship to Office365, there’s a wealth of technical information out there. However, I simply could not find a defininitve source of information until I stumbled onto this link from TechNET: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4854.aspx
This article covers the following:
- Cloud Computing, what is it, what resources, value
- Cloud Computing Continuum, cost sharing, economies, scalability, Private Cloud, SLA
- Why Microsoft (HyperV, Azure, Office365, CRM Online), infrastructure, end user applications
- Now What – what you need to do to determine the viability of a business case
I think this article helps you build an understanding for Cloud based services that could be used to describe to your organization / client what Cloud Computing is all about and key benefits.
