Companies turning to cloud today have an array of options. The solution that stands out should not only be flexible, easy- to-use and cost-effective. It must also help you meet your business goals.
Choose a provider that keeps it simple from initial migration through maintenance and management. Ask yourself:
  • How easy is ordering and adding new cloud services?
  • Does the provider offer straightforward pay-as-you-use pricing?
  • What security and reliability SLAs does the provider offer?
  • Does the provider’s portfolio extend beyond cloud so that you can streamline integration with your existing infrastructure?
  • Do the services include overall centralized management console that provide simple control to manage and monitor your cloud services?
  • Is there a team available to answer installation, migration and on-going support needs?
Asking the right questions will ensure that the cloud provider’s services align with your organization goals. Look for a provider with clear explanations of the service features and bundles that help you get everything you need in one place.  CenturyLink can help make the cloud work for you.
