Cloud Success: Pitfall Avoidance, Training Resources and a Little Unicorn Dust

 

GreenPages Enterprise Cloud Consultant, Chris Williams recently sat down with Brad Loomis, Director of Partner Architecture, Global Alliances at Cloud Technology Partners to discuss the new era of public cloud adoption for "The Doppler" Podcast. Six months ago there were people who were just getting their toes wet in public cloud and now those same people are going all in, not just with dev-test environments

but with their major production initiatives.
 
They also discussed some of the common pitfalls and 
places where they see organizations getting stuck in their cloud programs, from lost connections between on-prem and the cloud or simply mislabeling code that deploys the wrong applications.
 
Chris is a VMware expert, and a few years ago when he recognized the value of public cloud, he enrolled in A Cloud Guru and signed up for the 12-month free tier in AWS. He is still actively learning about AWS and VMware to better consult GreenPages clients on their cloud initiatives.

Back to the Future: 2020 Cloud Predictions from 2015

We dove deep into our blog archive and discovered a gem from 2015, "Cloud Computing in 2020: Looking into that Crystal Ball." We got a few things right and we got a few things wrong, including the circa 2015 concept of a cloud architect being an "emerging idea." I thought it would be great to write an update on where we are now with these former predictions. We asked David Jones, GreenPages' Director of CSP Operations, to go back to the future and respond to our 2015 predictions. Read his responses (in green) below! Let's just hope Biff doesn't get his hands on this article in the past, you never know what he could do with it!
