Once in a while I provide links to vendor or sponsored posts.  This one, sponsored by CDW gets you a white paper written by  CIO magazine, a respectable, trusted source for “best practices” information.

CDW is an infrastructure hardware and software supplier, again trusted and reliable.  I have used them for years and found them to be a good resource with reasonable pricing, especially for complex software licensing.

If you are considering a cloud migration, sorting our the differences between SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS is an important first step.

SaaS – Software as a Service
PaaS – Platform as a Service
IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service
