    Using public cloud can save an organization money, but with the growing field of public cloud providers, deciding which one best suits your needs may be difficult. In this handbook, we evaluate the different available cloud service providers, big and small.

    Once an organization makes the decision to implement a public cloud, they then have to decide which cloud service provider works best with their environment.
