In our daily lives, we see more and more companies with a virtualized infrastructure. What once was a great fear, now gaining ground within organizations of all sizes and we often hear the CIO’s managers define this as a private cloud infrastructure.
The vast majority of these structures have not virtualized process automation, provisioning and orchestration to be considered private clouds. In reality, a structure of virtualization is not the same thing as a private cloud.
While virtualization is the basis for building a cloud, many other factors must be present in a private cloud. For instance, the creation of new virtual machines must be simple and quick provisioning and deploying applications, and even operating systems should be automated and may not involve a large number of specialists, as happens in many cases.
A private cloud offers intelligence in resource allocation, hardware platform, software, processes and governance, without neglecting fundamental concepts such as elasticity, identity management, security and customization features to meet the various demands.
Deploying a private cloud typically requires changes in concept and breaking paradigms in organizations. The company changes the look previously directed to traditional assets such as dedicated servers and infrastructure for services rendered and consumed on demand. This, after consolidated extends more easily to public clouds, in cases where the best allocation of a particular application cannot be a private cloud. Example: web servers, email, etc..
The choice of the partner for Private Cloud is the key to success to leverage the growth of your business.
