cloud computing network  – If you need more computing or storage capacity in your data center but capital expense is an issue, then a public cloud computing service makes a nice option. You get on-demand IT resources that are infinitely scalable and you pay for what you use.

But running an enterprise application in a public cloud isn’t as simple as some providers might have you believe.

Buying a cloud service isn’t just about the nuts and bolts of computing and storage, cautions Dave Powers, associate information consultant at Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly & Co., which has been using Amazon Web Services (AWS) since April 2008. “It’s about all of the Web services and capabilities built on top of the cloud that makes being able to spin up some computing, do some storage and then tear it all down very low-friction.”Before committing to a cloud services provider, IT execs should understand exactly what resources they have on hand, what they’re buying, and how running on a public, shared server infrastructure will affect applications and business processes.

Tony Bishop, CEO of Adaptivity, a consulting firm specializing in next-generation IT infrastructure, puts it this way: “As much as cloud does away with the limitations of hardwired infrastructure, it doesn’t alleviate the need for proper planning and IT integration discipline. It amplifies it.”
