About This Expert Series

The hyperscaler cloud providers – AWS, Azure, and GCP – aren’t for everyone.

Organizations have a lot of reasons to consider alternatives. Privacy, compliance, additional control over infrastructure, and security are a few of them. Plus the hyperscalers are multi-faceted companies that compete with almost everyone on something, and storing data, applications and trade secrets on a competitor’s infrastructure can be a legitimate concern.

In this Expert Series session, we’ll look at reasons to move to the cloud without moving to one of the “Big Three” public cloud providers. We’ll compare options between on-premises data centers, private clouds, and other public cloud providers. Finally, we’ll look at steps to take in making a migration to a private or non-hyperscaler public cloud.
