There’s a lot of buzz in the industry about cloud computing and cloud management solutions, and with good reason.
Deliver software-as-a-service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) across your organization and enjoy 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.
