Cloud computing encompasses a lot of different technologies but the two biggest categories are Software as a Service (apps) and Infrastructure as a Service (servers). IaaS is the focus of our new special feature from ZDNet and TechRepublic. As part of the feature, we have a Q&A video with our editors in which we share some the things we've learned about the state of the cloud in the enterprise.

IaaS providers make a very convincing argument for businesses to stop running their own data centers and simply purchase server capacity on-demand and scale up and down as needed. How many companies are buying into it? Are they saving money? Is it meeting their expectations? What about the private cloud or the hybrid cloud?

We have combined to produce a series of resources to help technology decision makers understand the topic better and make good decisions about IaaS. In this video, TechRepublic editor in chief Jason Hiner and Tech Pro Research managing editor Bill Detwiler provide a Q&A on IaaS that includes information about the latest research on IaaS adoption and tackles the big question of public cloud versus private cloud.

You can download the 17-minute video over on TechRepublic and watch it in your browser or on your desktop. It is free to all registered ZDNet and TechRepublic members (if you aren't already registered, it only takes a moment).
