Businesses are heading to a more holistic perspective as they get more comfortable with the cloud. Increased ROI is still the primary business driver, but enterprises are going further. Therefore, it is in their interest to learn how to best optimize the performance of a cloud deployment. Let’s look at some strategies that will help businesses with this process.
There is much pressure surrounding private clouds, meaning, creating a private infrastructure that can deliver the same flexibility and scalability as public clouds from well known providers. The great advantage of private clouds is that they come without the security and control worries for sending data outside the company’s own walls.
Gartner Hype Cycle methodology is very popular among businesses because it offers details on how technologies will evolve over time. It is also extremely important because it provides insights useful to accelerate business performance.
Even though the risks of moving to a cloud environment seem too dangerous, more and more companies are migrating from traditional servers to virtual servers in the cloud. The main difference between cloud and traditional servers is that servers become multi-tenant allowing them to be more energy efficient, redundant, scalable and easier to manage and in some cases more secure than traditional servers.
Cloud management platforms are integrated products that provide for the management of public, private and hybrid cloud environments. CiRBA, a leading provider of capacity transformation and control software, recently announced its new capabilities for organizations looking to address the problems with building an internal cloud on platforms like OpenStack.
