SFB Guide - 10 Key Questions to Ask a Cloud Provider

In increasing order of complexity the three types of cloud service are: Software as a Service (SaaS); Platform as a Service (PaaS); and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). You may be fortunate enough to find a simple, out-of-the-box SaaS solution to all your problems. If, however, you have non-standard software requirements then you may wish to develop your own cloud applications or add to existing ones using PaaS. And if you need complete control at the server level then you should go with IaaS. But don’t forget that you would be placing your IT systems and your data in the cloud service provider’s care.

One way is to ask them the following ten key questions and see if they give satisfactory answers.
