When evaluating cloud solutions, how do you determine which one will best meet your requirements? Whether your business is a startup developing cloud-native applications or a mature organization looking to adopt cloud while leveraging legacy infrastructure, cloud can offer benefits in terms of performance, scalability and efficiency.

An understanding of your use case requirements, along with research and planning, will help avoid some common cloud mistakes.
