New Release: The Gorilla Guide® To… Hosted Private Clouds

Many companies are trying to stay nimble by avoiding investments in computer hardware and relying on cloud services. But the range of issues to consider—reliability, security, cost—along with the myriad options available make it hard to choose the best service.

In The Gorilla Guide® To… Hosted Private Clouds, author James Panetti reviews some of the options in cloud hosting and shows when a company might benefit from an option that combines elements of several models: the hosted private cloud. Panetti explains the US Signal offering, with a focus on security (Figure 1), to show what you get from this solution. Anyone who’s interested in how clouds work and how they differ will find this book useful.
