Hosted by: Sean Buckley, Editor, FierceTelecom
Incumbent carriers and data center/co-location providers are targeting cloud services on three fronts: expanding their data center facilities, crafting partnerships with application providers, and even purchasing other cloud providers as seen with Verizon purchasing Terremark and now CenturyLink launching a deal for Savvis.
During this webinar we'll address the following issues:
What are the compelling service provider cloud services strategies?
What are the benefits of cloud services to business and consumers?
Cloud service provider consolidation: What is the best strategy to grow your cloud business? Is it best to conduct targeted acquisition of other cloud providers or through organic growth? Or is it a combination of both approaches?
What is the best strategy to create a profitable cloud-based Disaster Recovery/Continuity of Operations (DR/COOP) product?
Public V. Private clouds: What is the best strategy? Does it depend on particular customer's needs?
What is the best practice for storing and securing your valuable customer identity data?
Come join FierceTelecom's Senior Editor Sean Buckley and a panel of experts to discuss these issues.
