Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Research Given the chance, any IT vendor or service provider will launch into their company’s vision for the future... your future.

If it’s Salesforce.com or Google, that will be a future in which you wave goodbye to all of your servers, storage and networking kit.

If it’s IBM, HP or Microsoft, their crystal ball will envision you living in a world of hybrid clouds, mixing and matching internal systems with external services to create a nirvana of choice and flexibility.

But what do you think?

Whether you have formally mapped out your own data centre vision or are just interested in kicking around some of the ideas and practicalities in this space, we’ve designed an in-depth survey that we think you’ll find interesting. So, tell us how far you intend to go with private and public clouds, how you’re going to get there, and how quickly.

And, by the way, this survey is not just for those who have drunk the kool-aid – whether you're a cloud fan or not, we want to hear from you.

You can get started right here. ®
