Enterprises world has taken a new turn with a large number of industries migrating to Private Cloud. UBM Tech the American global media business line has recently published some major observations of a study on the state of Private Clouds. Responding to the survey Sixty percent of the Managerial decision makers admit that they run one or more Private Cloud within their organizations.
Notably, the survey has disclosed many lingering issues associated with this development including poor interoperability with legacy systems, application migration challenges, and a shortage of relevant IT skills within internal staffs. One major cause pointing to these issues is to what extend early Private Cloud adopters have to depend on proprietary technology.
Interestingly, now the scenario is changing. As Private Clouds mature and innovative technology options become available, IT managers are launching new projects that alleviate the frustrations and shortcomings of the past. Obviously this new solutions have set a base for platform based service on industrial standards thereby mitigating a flexible and inter-operable Private Cloud architecture.
Introspection of the major benefits of the private cloud in the modern business scenario by the entrepreneurs and managers reveals the following seven star benefits
1. Private Clouds promote interoperability. Non-proprietary solutions enable IT departments to create workloads that can move among Physical, Virtual, Private, and Public Cloud environments now and in the future.
2. IT managers capitalize on innovation. A non-proprietary Cloud operating system such as OpenStack overcomes vendor lock-in issues associated with proprietary solutions and lets businesses more quickly adopt the latest Cloud developments.
3. Businesses can implement tools that automate and simplify IT management. Pools of compute, Storage, and Networking resources enhance business agility by enabling end-users to quickly download capabilities on-demand from service catalogues.
4. The right Clouds mitigate application migration problems. Non-proprietary Cloud architectures let organizations create an application once for one Cloud and deploy it as necessary in other environments, regardless of programming languages.
5. Enterprises can dynamically provision resources. IT managers can allocate compute, storage, and networking capabilities to immediately address emerging business opportunities, rather than enduring lengthy procurement and implementation processes associated with traditional provisioning activities.
6. Experts are ready to come on board with flexible approaches. Because non-proprietary cloud platforms are created and maintained by a diverse community of developers, enterprises that commit to these solutions have a large pool of talent to tap into when looking to expand their IT staffs.
7. Partners provide training and services to augment internal expertise. The best cloud partners can offer extensive training and consulting services for deploying and managing Private Cloud and hybrid environments based on industry standards.
