Cloud Services Platforms And Solutions
Cloud Services—Platforms And Solutions—IaaS Hybrid Cloud Platforms And Services

Every organization has ambitions, better customer relationships, game changing products, global expansion, stock pumping profits and cloud is a primary enabler for organizations with big ambitions. Cloud computing solutions can include IT infrastructure, development platforms and software. Users expect networks and the apps to be fast, secure, and always available. Our versatile suite of Infrastructure—as—a—Service cloud services and solutions can meet the requirements of the most demanding developers, IT managers, or global CIOs. Let us help you accelerate your ambitions. It’s all about taking the complexity out of the cloud. With a client centric approach to service, security standards, and a thorough understanding of your enterprise needs, we’ll support your transformational journey to an effective, fully integrated hybrid IT environment. Although the cloud can mean a lot of things to different people, for IT professionals it offers a way to extend existing capacity and capabilities. Cloud resources can be on and off premises, or both, employing a hybrid cloud model.

Cloud services are IT components, such as software, programming languages, networking and servers that are delivered to organizations on demand, usually on a pay as you go or subscription basis. Organizations looking to adopt hybrid cloud computing and build an SPI (IaaS) delivery model, the Software—as—a—Service (SaaS) model helps IT bring flexibility and scalability to your infrastructure as well as address the organizations’ new needs. Anything less is unacceptable. While moving away from an in—house facility to a SPI cloud service model transforms IT delivery, not all workloads should move to a cloud infrastructure. There are some key requirements that IT must deliver while considering cloud options. Cloud computing solutions come in the form of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform—as—a—Service (PaaS) and Software—as—a—Service (SaaS). Cloud service providers (CSPs) offer organizations utility type resources, like virtual machines, networking and storage capacity. Cloud platforms are support structures that facilitate development environments using pooled and scalable resources. There are also software services that deliver applications using a multitenant architecture.

VMware vCloud Air™ delivers a true hybrid cloud experience, and is uniquely positioned to solve critical IT challenges. VMware vCloud Air Dedicated Cloud™ is a single—tenant, physically isolated IaaS platform with a dedicated cloud management track.

IaaS Hybrid Cloud Platforms And Services

Infrastructure–as–a–Service Hybrid Clouds

Infrastructure—as—a—Service (IaaS) is a cloud model which allows organizations to outsource computing equipment and resources such as servers, storage, networking as well as services, such as load balancing and content delivery networks. The IaaS provider owns and maintains the equipment while the organization rents out the specific services it needs, usually on a pay as you go basis. It’s your own private cloud instance in the public cloud. VMware vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud™ is a multi—tenant, logically isolated core compute service that lives on shared infrastructure. Based on VMware vSphere™, it delivers high availability and fully private networking. IaaS providers include; AWS™, Microsoft Azure™, Google Compute Engine™, IBM SmartCloud Enterprise™, and HP Enterprise Converged Infrastructure™. Cloud infrastructure services, known as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), are self—service models for accessing, monitoring, and managing remote data center infrastructures, such as compute (virtualized or bare metal), storage, networking, and networking services (e.g. firewalls). Instead of having to purchase hardware outright, users can purchase IaaS based on consumption, similar to electricity or other utility billing.

Features And Benefits

Achieve an enterprise class security profile between your data center and the cloud and between clouds. Bridge the divide between enterprise IT and business lines. Deploy quickly with minimal disruption to business. Eliminate the need for CAPEX in favor of an OPEX model. Enable IT resources to focus on innovation rather than infrastructure maintenance. Expedite the building of new revenue generating products and services. Improve resource utilization with consistent and predictable SLAs. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a way of delivering Cloud Computing infrastructure—servers, storage, network and operating systems—as an on—demand service. Rather than purchasing servers, software, data center space or network equipment, clients instead buy those resources as a fully outsourced service on demand. By contrast, “private cloud” is infrastructure that emulates some of Cloud Computing features, like virtualization, but does so on a private network. Additionally, some hosting providers are beginning to offer a combination of traditional dedicated hosting alongside public and/ or private cloud networks. This combination approach is called hybrid cloud.
