A Look at the Best Way to Build a Cloud
April 24th, 2013 By: Bill Kleyman
Business agility and the needs of today’s business environment have pushed organizations into new technological areas. This includes deploying cloud computing platforms to help meet the needs of market. Currently, there are more users, more devices, more data and lot more reliance on the data center. All of these new demands require an agile infrastructure built on intelligent systems and a solid design. In working with unified, intelligent designs, administrators are able to deploy platforms which are capable of high-density user scalability. Furthermore, these systems simplify management create direct benefits for a cloud-ready environment.
One of these technologies, as outlined by the white paper, is the HP Converged Infrastructure. This type of platform helps organizations overcome the rigidity and high cost created by IT sprawl. In this white paper by IDG Tech and HP, you will see how the HP CI architectural blueprint eliminates silos and integrates technologies into shared pools of interoperable resources, all managed from a common management platform and all based on standards and customer choice. The result is a data center that delivers a new level of simplicity, integration and automation. More resources can be applied to innovation to deliver your desired business outcomes, including faster time-to-revenue, lower acquisition and implementation costs, flexibility to respond to business changes, and lower risk.
In deploying an agile cloud environment, organizations should work with platforms which unify technologies and simplify the entire cloud deployment process. Download this white paper to learn how working with technologies like the HP CloudSystem and the HP 3PAR Storage platform can help create a formula directly built around efficiency.
By unifying cloud-ready technologies, your organization can find benefits in numerous different ways. This includes:
- Save Time: Minutes, not hours or days to provision a service
- Be Efficient: Provision and grow resources on demand
- Stay Secure: Role based access
- Avoid Errors: SPM discovers and verifies configurations
- Provision Services: Includes Storage and SAN Fabric
When it comes to cloud computing – the best deployment method will revolve around a solid cloud foundation, good planning, and an eye towards the future.
