Cloud Computing and its transformative affects on a company’s Information Technology processes, budgets, software and hardware deployments is one of the biggest stories of 2015. In fact, it’s estimated that Europe’s total cloud expenditures will be upwards of 600 billion by 2020. The pressure to be more agile and leverage technology to drive new initiatives while taking advantage of the inherent benefits of cloud computing (rapid IT deployments, OPEX vs. CAPEX spending, automation) is increasing. Infrastructure as a Service, or IaaS, is the foundation of cloud computing, and is now becoming the default model for transforming traditional IT deployments.
