Why Dev/Test is a great place to launch your cloud computing initiative
November 25, 2011 § 1 Comment
At WiseClouds, we’re often asked to identify the best use cases for customers who want to get started with cloud computing. Our clients have legitimate concerns about the cost, security, regulatory, scalability, and many other issues inherent in moving to the cloud. Navigating these issues can take months to resolve and involve reconciling all sorts of outside viewpoints, such as those from the legal department – often from multiple countries!
For these and other reasons, the software development/test process is an ideal way to try out the cloud:
- It can pay significant benefits for minimal investment
- It sidesteps many of the issues I just listed
- It’s low risk
- It scales very nicely
- It can easily be brought back inside the firewall
I’ll discuss how to get started in an upcoming post.
