The purpose of this research is to understand the challenges companies face in their document or file level security practices as a result of the adoption of such disruptive technologies as mobile devices and cloud services.
Hybrid cloud infrastructures and mobility are changing the rules of the game for IT security professionals. Read this paper to understand the requirements to adopting a new monitoring strategy to quickly detect attacks across the infrastructure you control in your data center, as well as what you don't control in the dynamic cloud.
Many businesses are beginning to understand that hybrid cloud can provide the best of both worlds: on-demand access to much-needed IT resources, and the flexibility to move workloads onsite or offsite to meet specific needs. The most common question is not “Why hybrid cloud?” but “How do we get started?”
Depending on your specific IT strategy and requirements, consider evaluating the following five types of workloads for hybrid cloud.
Wish you could meet your development and testing requirements to get your applications to market faster? Now you can with VMware vCloud® Air™— a cloud service platform that provides on-demand access to compute resources that are 100% compatible with your VMware vSphere® environment.
Organizations struggle to meet the demand for scalable and resilient infrastructure to develop and test applications. A growing number of organizations are consuming or considering cloud services to accelerate software dev/test cycles. Cloud services enable them to take advantage of on-demand capacity to deal with these key challenges:
• Limited IT resources force trade-offs in prioritizing projects.
• Unpredictable requirements for dev/test result in overpurchasing and underutilization.
• Lengthy purchasing and provisioning cycles for new infrastructure add time and cost to projects.
• Incompatible dev/test and production environments require workarounds that draw out timelines and raise the risk of errors.
Cloud adoption continues to expand beyond the base of cutting-edge early adopters and is now reaching the "early mainstream" stage, increasingly being looked at by enterprises as a viable model for agile, cost-effective IT delivery.
However, the prevailing binary paradigm of cloud infrastructure (public versus private) limits the extent to which enterprises can fully leverage the on-demand, self-service, elastic resource provisioning attributes of public cloud while maintaining the same security, reliability, performance, and management frameworks present in current
private cloud implementations. Hybrid cloud solves this problem.
Businesses are embracing public cloud because it promises increased agility and scalability. But it can also introduce complexity, interoperability, and security concerns. Hybrid cloud is emerging as a way to mitigate those concerns by providing the right combination of internal controls with the ability to securely scale to meet business demand for IT resources.
As you contemplate moving various pre-production and production workloads—and your mission-critical and sensitive data—to the cloud, be sure to develop a strategic approach based on your business and IT objectives.
Here are the top five considerations to keep in mind as you begin evaluating hybrid cloud for your workloads.
Need to provide fast, easy, secure access to cloud services? Now you can with VMware vCloud® Air™ Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand—the fastest path to the cloud that seamlessly integrates with your VMware vSphere® data center.
Wish you could get to hybrid cloud—fast?More than 30% of organizations expect that within three years, they’ll access 45.5% of IT resources through some form of cloud—public, private, or hybrid.* That’s an impressive number, and there’s a reason for it: the cloud is packed with benefits.
If you’re a VMware customer, you’re already halfway there. vCloud Air is built on the trusted VMware vSphere® platform, so it’s simply an extension of your current data center.
Bridge the divide between test and production environments with VMware vCloud® Air™, a production-ready cloud that is 100% compatible with your onsite VMware vSphere® infrastructure. Remove budget barriers, improve testing accuracy and efficiencies, and accelerate your entire software development lifecycle—while ensuring your test environments are synchronized to production standards.
How can your business use vCloud Air for dev/test? Consider these top four use cases:
What is the main focus for IT in your organization - cost or agility?
Many IT discussions today focus on cost controls rather than the greater potential benefit - business agility. IT leaders are more likely to ask "How much capital and operational expense can I cut with cloud?" than "How will cloud improve revenue or my company's competitiveness?"
Yet business decision makers want IT to help them drive innovation and accelerate past competitors.
Forward thinking CIOs are deploying cloud computing as a strategic weapon - not just for IT but ultimately to enable business transformation itself.
Businesses are looking for a more flexible IT framework that can adapt to today’s rapidly changing and global environment.The need for faster, more cost-effective access to IT resources has created a healthy tension between business teams and IT, driving both to look for new and better solutions.
Now VMware and our partners are delivering a new generation of hybrid cloud services that seamlessly extend your onsite data center to the cloud. Hybrid cloud services from VMware vCloud® Air™ and VMware vCloud Air Network Service Provider partners enable you to deploy and manage applications between your onsite and offsite environments to best meet the needs of your business.
VMware vCloud® Air™ Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand is an infrastructure-as-a-service offering that gives you instant, secure access to the cloud compute resources you need, at any time, with no commitments. There’s no faster way to get up and running with a cloud that is 100% compatible with your VMware vSphere® environment.
To keep pace with new business demands, rising customer expectations, and emerging technologies, IT leaders are realizing an important opportunity: infrastructure outsourcing. These services, including colocation, hosting, and cloud computing, give IT organizations the flexibility and agility to better serve the needs of the business.
One of IT’s biggest balancing acts is to make data transactions easily available to authorized users while preventing all others from accessing its data assets. With high-profile data security breaches splashed across headlines nearly every day, CIOs are understandably worried about protecting their data. And for IT leaders who are considering moving their business to the cloud it is critical to ensure the provider they select has undertaken full and robust measures for physical and logical security.
Information technology is undergoing rapid change as organizations of all types begin to embrace the idea of
moving computing infrastructure from on-premises to the cloud. It is easy to understand why the cloud has taken
off faster than any technology phenomenon in recent memory. The cloud has the potential to reduce total cost of
ownership (TCO) while enabling quicker responses to fast-moving markets and ever-changing customer needs.
“Being able to flex your compute resources based on changes in volume and customer demand increases agility,
making going to the cloud a very attractive proposition for our customers,” says Brian Johnston, chief technology
officer for QTS in Overland Park, Kansas, a provider of data center solutions and fully managed services.
