In my presentation I provided some insight into InfinIT’s experience in transitioning our business model from a traditional IT Consulting company to a Cloud Computing and Managed Services Provider.  I provided details on the process we went through, challenges we faced and how we overcame them, some tips and tricks and best practices we have developed as we went through this process, finally I provided some example results we have experienced and also spoke about our iDNA private cloud environment we are now allowing partners to leverage to enable them to quickly add Private Cloud hosting solutions to their suite of services. 

 

Below are two blogs InfinIT has developed that provide tons of information on Cloud Computing technologies such as Microsoft Online Services, the Dynamic Datacenter Toolkit, and a list of great articles and FAQ’s that provide answers to common customer questions with BPOS, In Tune, and other Microsoft based Cloud Computing and Virtualization technologies.
