Solutions: Enterprise Cloud

Enterprise clouds are the natural next step in the evolution of the virtualized data center, helping IT organizations become more efficient and deliver new business services with unprecedented speed. However, as an IT administrator, you are concerned about whether you can transition to the enterprise cloud model without creating a management nightmare for your staff. Most of the cloud solutions on the market take a rip-and- replace approach, requiring organizations to separate the infrastructure used to deliver cloud services from the rest of the virtualized environment. Administrators are expected to know upfront which workloads they will transition to the cloud model and how much capacity will be required to support cloud operations. This rigid model results in infrastructure and management silos, preventing dynamic allocation of compute resources in response to changing business priorities – which was the main value proposition for virtualizing your data center in the first place!

At Convirture, we understand that you need the flexibility to transition to the cloud operations model at your own pace. We know that you may not have a bullet-proof plan of how much capacity you will need to run the cloud. Instead, you need time to experiment and understand which of your workloads are best suited for the cloud, and then scale up your cloud operations accordingly. As your business demands change, you need a way to quickly repurpose your infrastructure from the cloud to traditional virtualized workloads and vice versa. And, of course, you are under constant pressure to minimize costs.
