Given the soaring growth of cloud computing it is no wonder that businesses of all sizes hope to seize the opportunities afforded by cloud services—whether public, private or hybrid. Despite the opportunities, enterprises still face considerable barriers to adoption. IT and network leaders struggle with how best to leverage the power of the cloud amidst the challenges of security, the need to optimize network resources, and new network technologies such as Software Defined Networks (SDNs). The integration of private data networking technologies with cloud computing platforms can overcome these hurdles to adoption, if enterprises know the critical steps for a successful implementation.

A webcast, co-sponsored by XO Communications and 451 Research, will provide a roadmap and best practices for integrating private data networking technologies with cloud computing resources. Plus, submit your own questions when you register and we will address the top ten questions during the event.

Register now for this free webcast to learn how to maximize the benefits of cloud computing for your enterprise and for your bottom line.

Date: Tuesday, May 14, 2013  |  Time: 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET  |  Duration: 60 minutes
