  • From virtualization to the cloud

    Many companies have become comfortable with virtualization, which lays the foundation for developing a private or hybrid cloud strategy. But to optimize their infrastructure, IT pros need to understand that a cloud environment has some key differences from an environment that is just virtualized. In this e-book series, we define the cloud and the attributes -- like automation, chargeback and new management tools and strategies -- that take virtualized data centers to the next level. With advice on selecting virtualization vendors and tools that will help in this process, readers will be able to make informed decisions about their virtualization strategy and design a smart architecture for cloud, rather than approaching it on a costly trial-and-error basis.
