Do More, More Efficiently with Cloud
The modern workplace thrives on efficiency—and to stay relevant, you need to capture measurable cost reductions through innovative technology or get more value from the same IT expense. On top of that, you must also consider how to handle end of support for mainstream software applications, as well as how to expand user choices to consume services. This is pushing organizations to look for ways of becoming more flexible, more scalable, and more efficient.
Organizations of all types want to utilize the power of the public cloud for its resiliency, and always-on service level. However, you also have ongoing needs to enhance your on-premises data center solution for privacy, security, and self-service provisioning. You need your data center to effectively deliver end-user services in a traditional data center, public cloud, or a combination of both.
Choose the Right Cloud for Your Environment
Cloud environments are inherently challenging to build. The biggest challenge in building a private or hybrid cloud is selecting from many different cloud technologies—both from a hardware and software perspective—while taking advantage of existing infrastructure. Both solutions offer unique benefits:
- Private Cloud—This solution builds from traditional server virtualization and offers distinct cloud attributes: pools of compute resources, broad data access, rapid scalability, self‑service provisioning, and measureable usage.
- Hybrid Cloud—Integrate private cloud capabilities with an off-premises, hosted cloud solution and take advantage of expanded resource pools for burst, proximity, and the budget benefits of a hybrid cloud environment.
Connection believes that the hybrid cloud is the future of IT. The ability to bridge private cloud infrastructure with the always-on availability and dynamic scale-ability of the public cloud is too promising to ignore. However, organizations need a trusted advisor to help them design the right solution. That’s where our Technology Solutions Group Practices can step in. Our Converged Data Center and Cloud Practice work together to structure our investments, partnerships, and expertise to deliver best-in-class solutions in this area.
