The past few years have seen an explosion in the time and effort dedicated to virtualizing IT infrastructures to achieve greater efficiency and lower costs in the data center. However, as budgets continue to shrink and business needs continue to grow, top-down pressure to find even greater efficiency builds. Cloud computing promises an even more efficient, flexible and cost-effective IT model that will enable your organization to respond faster to business opportunities. The challenge for every IT decision-maker is how to accelerate the benefits of the cloud while avoiding the pitfalls and mitigating the inherent risks.
Virtualization is the essential catalyst for cloud computing – the first leg on your journey – so you have probably taken the first step toward this higher level of IT efficiency. But if it is not planned properly, the transition to the cloud can be disjointed, costly and slow.

Journey.VM by Siwel is a robust, scalable cloud enablement solution that accelerates your transition to the cloud while mitigating the risk – no matter where you currently find yourself on the journey.
