Webinar: The Midmarket and SMB Guide to Cloud Computing

Don Schuett
December 7, 2015

Few technologies have impacted businesses over the last few years as much as cloud computing. Whether it’s enabling enterprises to handle traffic bursts in a more economical and efficient manner or helping small and midsize businesses (SMBs) save money on infrastructure costs, cloud computing has the ability to positively impact businesses of all sizes.

And yet, much of the conversation about the proliferation of cloud computing has revolved around the large enterprise. Global enterprises may be huge proponents of cloud, but they’re hardly the only companies that can benefit from it. SMBs stand to benefit from cloud just as much as their large-scale counterparts.

In a new sponsored webinar, John Freimuth, General Manager of Cloud & IT Services at Telx, joins several other speakers to discuss how IT professionals at midmarket companies and SMBs can deliver the value of cloud services and applications, while eliminating common errors and blind spots.

The webinar, titled "The Midmarket and SMB Guide to Cloud Computing," is available on-demand now here. John Freimuth joins speakers Anurag Agrawal (CEO & Analyst, Techaisle) and Laurie McCabe (Co-founder and Partner, SMB Group), as well as Nancy Gohring (Editor-In-Chief, Fierce Enterprise IT Publications) to discuss:

  • Understanding your cloud options: SaaS, IaaS and PaaS, public and private–cloud services go by many names. We provide a concise look at what the terms mean for practical cloud use.
  • How cloud use changes the financial picture: "Clouds are cheap" is an oversimplification, but the opportunity to save money is clearly there for the smart SMB.
  • What about security? Which cloud security concerns are real, and which are phantoms? A field guide to affordable security and compliance strategies.
  • The case for hybrid cloud: There are some workloads you know you'll never sell management on moving to the public cloud. We'll discuss how hybrid cloud can help you cut costs and meet other goals while keeping management happy.

Navigating today’s complex cloud space can seem overwhelming—but it doesn’t have to be. This hour-long webinar is packed with value for IT professionals in the midmarket and SMB segment who are looking for guidance in cloud computing.
