Help Requested: DZone PaaS and IaaS Comparison Guide

· Cloud Zone
Free Resource

Download the Essential Cloud Buyer’s Guide to learn important factors to consider before selecting a provider as well as buying criteria to help you make the best decision for your infrastructure needs, brought to you in partnership with Internap.

DZone is currently underway creating a comparison guide of PaaS and IaaS platforms to enable users to make informed purchasing decisions in regard to using the cloud. While we prepare our quantitative comparison, we are gathering topic experts in PaaS or IaaS to participate in our research.

As a topic expert, you would have several different opportunities to assist with this project.

  • If you have strong writing skills, you may volunteer to write a short piece for our guide, discussing an important topic in cloud computing (security, common recipes for success/failure occur to me immediately)
  • If you’re less sure of your writing, but strong on your content knowledge, we are planning on holding a focus group. The specific topics discussed in the focus group will revolve around the platforms being reviewed and industry-general trends.

If you are interested in participating in this program as a topic expert, please fill out the form below:
