White Paper: The Acid Test for the On-Demand Data Center A CIO’s Evaluation and Selection Guide

This independent research and analysis report, prepared and published by Phil Wainewright, one of the world's foremost authorities on business automation and ZDNet writer on Software as a Service (SaaS), provides a framework for evaluating a Software as a Service (SaaS) data center. SaaS is becoming a mainstream choice, but adopting a SaaS business application means entrusting the operation of core systems to a third party, and therefore the strength and capacity of the SaaS provider’s data center infrastructure is a key component of any evaluation. This report maps out the key parameters the IT organization must consider when evaluating the provider’s data center capabilities in key areas such as security, uptime and performance.
