End user to the data center to the cloud and beyond…
Many IT departments are struggling with how to implement cloud technology to improve efficiencies, decrease the amount of time to deploy new applications and lower management costs. There is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Public cloud options such as Amazon Web Services or Rackspace are making it easy for business unit owners to easily procure server space. SaaS (Software as a Service) options, such as Salesforce.com, are giving users access to their data from anywhere, at any time and from any device.
IT departments are looking for ways to improve control and data security while not limiting user’s ability to become more productive. One way they are accomplishing this is by creating and maintaining a private cloud. Virtualizing the data center allows organizations to act like a public cloud in terms of ease of deployment, flexibility and billing usage back to business units. This approach also puts control and security back in the hands of the IT department.
More and more companies in the Arizona region are looking at a combination of public and private cloud technologies creating a hybrid cloud. Many of them use public cloud services for non-mission critical functions, such as application development, and then will merge those applications to their private cloud for production.
The difficulty is in creating a best-of-breed strategy on how to implement this solution, as it can affect business processes and workflows along with data center technologies including server, network and storage. The cloud experts at iT1 can help!
