There’s a lot of buzz in the industry about cloud computing and cloud management solutions, and with good reason.
Private cloud solutions can offer organizations of all sizes a wide range of IT benefits:
Lower costs: By consolidating your IT resources in a cloud model, you can eliminate redundant physical servers, reduce ongoing maintenance requirements, and minimize your need to purchase additional hardware over the years to come.
Greater reliability: Rather than having a data center full of servers that crash from overuse, you can use virtualization to easily distribute workloads between virtual servers, resulting in better overall performance.
Better security: With computing tasks confined to fewer physical servers and data storage consolidated on fewer devices, security becomes an easier task.
Greater agility: Once you build a private cloud solution, you can scale it relatively easily to meet the needs of your business users. Provisioning a virtual server takes minutes or hours – as opposed to the several weeks it can take to provision a physical server.
Work with SMP to Develop Your Cloud Computing Strategy
Once you’ve established a private cloud management solution, you can deliver software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and platform as a service (PaaS) to users across your organization. SMP uses VMware virtualization technology to make this transition possible.
By moving your workloads to a private cloud, SMP can help you to begin achieving the benefits of cloud computing. We’ll also work with you to refine your strategy for long-term private cloud management. Drawing upon our years of cloud expertise, we’ll show you where the areas of greatest benefit are for your unique situation.
