Deep Dive Webinar Series Offers Expert Help Assessing Private Cloud

dedicated deep dive

If your organization is like the majority of businesses, part of your 2017 IT strategy will involve a move toward cloud, whether it’s moving a single legacy application out of your data center,  spinning up a few public cloud servers to test a new application, or committing to a full IT transformation.

But the truth is, that transformation will almost certainly be difficult. Last year, RightScale’s State of the Cloud report found that a lack of resources and expertise was the number one challenges facing organizations seeking to make the transition. And because technology changes so quickly, new IT challenges constantly arise.

But you don’t have to go it alone. Get ready to dive in with Rackspace expertise.

Our latest Deep Dive series, via Google Hangouts, is focused on demystifying cloud transformation. We’re starting with a four part series devoted to helping you understand private cloud options. Experts from around Rackspace will offer up “real talk” about private cloud, its challenges and benefits. We’ll also offer valuable content from technology analysts IDC and others.
