Executive Summary Many organizations agonize over moving workloads to the Cloud and are hampered in their decision making process by a lack of non-biased information in the marketplace. In this report we give examples of the sorts of considerations business should look at when investigating a move. These considerations span both business and technical issues and it is only through an honest appraisal of both of these drivers that the best decisions for a particular workload, within a particular organization, can be made.

You Want to Put My Database Where? : Determining the Right Fit Between Your Technology and the Cloud © Diversity Limited, 2011 Non-commercial reuse with attribution permitted 2 Matching Technologies to Requirements – The Right Stuff in the Right Place A theme we have reiterated in this CloudU series is that Cloud is for everyone but not necessarily for everything. What we mean by this is that almost all organizations have some requirements that we believe are appropriately delivered from the Cloud, but not all requirements should, in fact be Cloud based. Given our contention then that Cloud is for everyone but not everything, organizations need to understand the different capabilities of Cloud solutions and look at those capabilities within the context of their own technical and business requirements.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
