Evolve Toward an Automated, Hybrid Cloud
Cloud is a revolution in how enterprise IT is procured, managed, and delivered. It means IT services on-demand, self-service provisioning, elastic applications, metered chargeback, and more. All powered by a combination of public and private cloud services to ensure high availability, performance optimization, and cost efficiencies.
Despite the revolutionary changes, the path to an enterprise cloud can be a controlled evolution. Getting there is simpler than you think. Our enterprise customers have blazed a trail. Here is the map.
Traditional Data Centers
Enterprise IT typically starts as a siloed sprawl. Hardware is underutilized. There is never enough capacity. Power, space, and cooling restrain decisions. Heterogeneous hardware, hypervisors, OSes, and applications are a mess to manage.
Virtualized Data Centers
Virtualization drives higher hardware utilization. But it can leave vast inefficiencies. Data centers are often still fragmented. Provisioning teams for networking, storage, and servers are forced to coordinate. VMs sprawl due to a lack of standardization throughout the application stack.
The Solution: Automated, Hybrid Clouds
Private and hybrid clouds offer the potential to solve the provisioning and operational challenges of the virtualized data center. An automated, hybrid cloud gives you four key benefits:
- Unified Environment: View, monitor, and audit your entire cloud infrastructure. Be notified of failures, cost overruns, and access to sensitive keys and data.
- No-Wait IT: Enable on-demand provisioning of network, compute, and storage resources in both public and private clouds. Use RightScale automated provisioning for manageable, self-service, and quick-to-deploy applications. Use your existing scripts, leverage our libraries, or integrate with Chef and Puppet.
- Workload Liberation: Link multiple private data centers and zones, managed cloud providers, and public cloud resources together using RightScale. Diversify geographically, across vendors, for performance, and for scalability. Maintain choice in hypervisors and cloud vendors.
- IT at Scale: Automate key operations to achieve true resource elasticity. Clone entire test or production environments. Maintain servers that automatically respond to demand shifts and resource failures. Easily test patches and code shipments. Scale to the needs of your applications.
Join the IT revolution. Create strong, automated IT infrastructure to deliver next-generation cloud services to your organization. Find out how RightScale can help you build your enterprise cloud.
