Managed Services Partner to Host a Live Long Island Event Exploring Underlying Technologies that Form the Foundation for Hybrid Cloud Strategies

ISLANDIA, NY - May 12, 2015 — / – With pressure mounting to “do more with less,” the idea of migrating business-critical workloads to the cloud is an attractive one.  However, when faced with a myriad of questions about reliability, security, total cost of acquisition (for private cloud) or cumulative operating expenses (for public or hybrid cloud), even the most savvy IT pros are finding “What kind of cloud model to adopt?” a complex question. According to Converged Technology Group (, an award-winning Managed Services Partner (MSP) serving clients throughout the Northeast, a hybrid cloud strategy may be the best fit.

“In cloud computing, there is no such thing as ‘one size fits all,’ though a hybrid cloud strategy is one many companies agree gives them the best of all worlds,” says Leo E. Galletta, President and CEO, Converged Technology Group.  “Making the move to the cloud – public, private or hybrid – requires a strategy that’s tailor-made for the organization the cloud will ultimately support. Developing the right strategy requires a thorough understanding of the specific workloads within that organization that are best suited for a cloud environment, the changes that must be made within the client’s own data center to maximize performance and mitigate risk, and which tier-one solutions are best suited to create the underlying infrastructure that will form the foundation for the cloud environment.  That’s why Converged Technology Group invests in live events and, when engaged, an intensely consultative experience to help IT pros thoroughly evaluate the options that are right for their specific circumstances and create an effective migration strategy that will deliver the agility, price-performance and security advantages they wanted when they first considered cloud computing.”
