Cloud computing implementations have the potential to drive significant improvements in operational efficiency and reductions in operational expenditures.

In order to ensure reliability in a Cloud infrastructure, however, organizations need to adopt management practices and infrastructure designs consistent with what ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES® (EMAT) analysts have referred to as a "Responsible Cloud" deployment that is secure, reliable, economical, and rapidly extensible.
