Webinar: Your private cloud is probably a “cloudwashed” pretender


Webinar: Your private cloud is probably a "cloudwashed" pretender. Register now for “Top 10 Trends in Private Cloud” from HP Helion and Forrester Research.


You’ve heard the promises… build a private cloud and your enterprise sprouts a jetpack. It’s fast. It’s agile. IT productivity rises even as operating costs drop. The claims aren’t all hype—if it’s a true private cloud. But that’s a big if.


According to the results of a recent survey, the percentage of enterprises claiming they have private clouds that actually do have private clouds is shockingly low. Forrester Research found that only 9% of so-called private cloud environments have the three essential qualities of the real deal: self-service access, full automation, and monitoring of resources. Everything else is just “cloudwashing.”(1)


Register for “Top 10 Trends in Private Cloud” and learn to identify the signs of cloudwashing. Bobby Patrick, CMO of HP Cloud, and Lauren E. Nelson, senior analyst with Forrester Research, will also discuss the most time-intensive steps of IT automation and the one thing you absolutely must do to see a return on your private cloud investment. And as a bonus, you’ll get free access to Lauren E. Nelson’s Forrester report, “Top 10 Facts Every Tech Management Leader Should Know About Private Cloud,” with registration to the webinar.
