HPE SimpliVity Public Cloud
HPE SimpliVity OmniCube's hyperconverged infrastructure delivers cloud economics, scale, and efficiency.
Consumers are turning to public cloud computing in droves. Services like Google Docs, Dropbox, and online backup, for example, are starting to bleed into the workplace.
In the past, there was a golden rule: infrastructure remains on-premises and under the control of IT. Always. This is simply not true anymore.
As users require faster response time, faster application development, and faster time to market, they are turning to public cloud computing, regardless if IT likes it or not. This phenomenon is creating the “shadow IT” problem whereby “83% of IT workers admit to using non-approved SaaS applications, compared to 81% of line-of-business workers.”
We’re not talking about isolated incidents here. According to the same Frost & Sullivan report, “26% of IT departments use six or more non-approved SaaS applications; just 7% of business units use that many.”
If a developer needs a faster test and development platform, he or she is going to turn to public cloud computing. If an end user needs to roll out a new application or a remote office needs new infrastructure, it might be preferable to turn to public cloud computing.
Rather than fighting public cloud computing, IT organizations should embrace it. Are you?
The key questions that need to be answered are:
- How do you maintain the core tenents of the past: reliability, availability, serviceability, security, and compliance?
- How can you maintain control if data is going off site?
- How can you avoid adding yet another user interface—and the additional training and operational strain it might introduce?
- How can you leverage the efficiencies and scale of cloud economics without handing over the keys to the kingdom?
- How can you efficiently commission and de-commission virtual machines without risking the loss of associated data?
Do you have to trust your data with someone else or can you keep it on site? The answer is yes to both.
