(This webinar is currently available to view for free on-demand: THE HYBRID CLOUD: MAKING OFFICE 365 AND THE PRIVATE CLOUD WORK FOR YOU)
With another Microsoft conference in our wake, Fpweb.net once more examines the question we hear the most: What’s the difference between you guys and Microsoft’s Office 365?
Often times, these businesses are having the cloud conversation and Microsoft has done well to place their Office 365 product at the front of mind of their customers. Because the cloud can be a confusing concept due to the different cloud types available, it’s a very fair question, and that’s why we’ve put so much energy into answering it.
- You can check out our website: “Comparing Office 365 to Fpweb.net”
- You can see our blog: “The Difference Between Fpweb.net and Office 365 Clouds”.
- You can read our eBook: “Is Office 365 Right for Your Business?”
- You can watch our last webinar: “Know Your Limits: SharePoint in a Private Cloud vs. Office 365”
And there’s more where that came from… but what we want to make just as clear is that – while knowing the difference between a private, dedicated SharePoint environment and Office 365’s public, shared model is half the battle – it is just as important to understand that the two can work together!
The Hybrid Cloud is a very important and often necessary way to run your SharePoint environment. That’s why we are creating our latest webinar around the idea of using both Office 365 and Fpweb.net’s private SharePoint cloud to answer your business needs.
Andy Milsark will be taking the Fpwebinar reigns for the first time on June 17th, 2014 at 11am (EST) for “The Hybrid Cloud: Making Office 365 and the Private Cloud work for you”.
This 20 minute webinar is going to focus on the different scenarios that your business may encounter that would require you to use both Office 365’s applications as well as a private cloud environment for your SharePoint.
Often times, Lynch and Exchange Online are simple and familiar enough to keep in front of your users, but SharePoint, being a powerful platform, requires a lot more control and access than a shared environment will allow.
Also, being such a robust environment means that you need to have a say in how your SharePoint patching is handled. Rolling refreshes of SharePoint updates and patching by Office 365 can break your environment and slow down your business.
When you have full customization capabilities with your dedicated SharePoint server, you can add whatever web parts you need to fit whatever business need you encounter. Shared resources won’t allow this.
Andy will talk about these scenarios and other use cases that will help you discover why it’s so important to find the perfect SharePoint solution for your business. We hope your investigation into hybrid cloud solutions helps your business gain the competitive advantage that is inherent with the cloud.
As with all of our Fpwebinars, there will be a Q&A session afterwards where you can get any questions to your specific environment needs answered. And during our webinar, one lucky attendee will win a copy of Microsoft Windows 8 Pro (a $199.99 value).
