For organizations starting to think about moving their website infrastructure to the cloud, navigating the landscape of options can be a daunting task. While a completely isolated environment is alluring as it mitigates percieved security risk, it often does not come with the cost efficiencies and business agility most organizations are seeking from the cloud. In contrast, a completely shared environment delivers the utmost cost efficiency, but at what cost to performance, security and reliability? There is a spectrum of needs across web sites that may require a completely isolated, isolated cluster, shared cluster, or fully shared environment. The key is aligning business needs with full knowledge of the benefits and potential security, performance, and scalability risk of each option.
Attendees of this webinar will come away with:
* An understanding of the different architecture, including typical technology structure and estimated costs that comes with each
* A profile of the types of organizations and sites that are most appropriate for each model
* A pragmatic guide for your organization to evaluate the security, performance, and scalability model that is right for your site
Attendees will also receive a complimentary white paper that showcases the webinar content, including the evaluation guide.
