  • An Infrastructure in the Cloud
    Source: CDW Corporation
    White Paper: IT decision-makers at most enterprises understand the benefits that the cloud has to offer: increased agility and more predictable budgeting, among others. In many organizations, in fact, "cloud first" has become the mantra when seeking out new software solutions. But often, enterprises are less clear on the specific use cases of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and how providers can help deliver IT capabilities that meet their needs and help them to achieve desired business outcomes.

    As cloud computing matures, it's increasingly vital that enterprise IT decision-makers understand the potential advantages of utilizing IaaS solutions such as Microsoft Azure. Just as important is an understanding of how to strategically move resources to the cloud. For many enterprises, this understanding is achieved with the help of a trusted partner that can provide expert, in-depth advice and assist with each step of the process -- from assessment and planning, to cloud migration and management of hosted services.

  • Securing Your Azure Deployment
    Source: CDW Corporation
    White Paper: Many organizations find Microsoft's Azure cloud computing platform an indispensable part of their IT environment. Once they adopt Azure and other cloud computing services, security becomes an essential consideration. Organizations of all sizes are implementing these services to achieve agility,
    flexibility, scalability and cost savings, but worry whether adopting them jeopardizes their security posture, particularly in today's sophisticated threat environment.

    Microsoft understands these concerns and has made security a key design element of the Azure platform. Azure employs powerful encryption and access management tools, and Microsoft maintains a focus on security as the platform evolves. That being said, security in the cloud is a shared responsibility requiring commitments of time and energy from both vendors and customers. Enterprises adopting cloud computing services must implement their own security strategies to ensure that their Azure deployments adequately protect enterprise applications and data.
