Cloud Computing is a new computing model in which service providers deliver technology-enabled services to their customers over the network. Prior computing architectures were dedicated to individual customers or applications. Cloud Computing infrastructures offer elasticity, agility and new economies of scale because they are shared across multiple business processes, applications and customers.

This session will offer a pragmatic approach to prepare your data center for cloud computing and the delivery of shared services over the network to your customers. By following a three-phased approach of simplifying, securing and sharing your data center, you will enable the implementation and delivery of services over the network with a new economy of scale.
