Rutger ter Hoeven, Sr. Manager Marketing at Interxion, elaborated on changing enterprise data centre & cloud strategies
He gave us the summary findings of a recent IDG Connect survey commissioned by Interxion providing insight into current and future data centre and cloud strategies and preferred computing models of medium- and large-sized enterprises, comparing Belgium findings with the European average. Some of the topics covered included:
- Is enterprise cloud adoption becoming a reality in 2015?
- Will the public, private or hybrid cloud adoption model prevail?
- What percentage of workloads will move to the cloud vs. remaining in the data centre?
- What will be the role of corporate data centres in the cloud era?
- Will data centre outsourcing become more common?
- How will on-premise and cloud-based IT infrastructure be connected?
Afterwards, Peter Van Dyck, Senior Associate Allen & Overy LLP, let us benefit from some do’s and don’ts for negotiating cloud computing contracts. How and when are cloud computing vendors’ willing to deviate from their standard terms and conditions? What about negotiating on key clauses and how does this differ from the negotiation of the same clauses in a traditional IT contract?
As usual, there was also ample opportunity for Q&A, and for participants to share their experiences.
