First of all: does your organisation really need to move its infrastructure to someone else’s computers?
In some cases it makes sense to have specialists looking after complex infrastructure in a dedicated data centre but that depends on various factors which include amongst others:
We believe it is important to evaluate the actual requirements of your organisation before proposing a Cloud service that may not be fully satisfactory.
Many now realise the Cloud that has been proposed by mainstream vendors, has not lived to their expectations and corrective actions are often required.
If you haven’t moved to the Cloud yet, you may discover that you just need to optimise or upgrade your in-house infrastructure using platforms that are more efficient and easier to manage. This will allow you to move to an external platform only public facing services creating a Hybrid Cloud.
Due to lack of adequate room for the required infrastructure, geographical distribution of users and/or employees, or lack of suitable connectivity at your offices, a Private Cloud could be a good choice.
If you have well connected offices with data intensive local workloads, eg. large databases or manufacturing plants feeding lots of data, then you may want to consider a federated Cloud between your offices to share workloads and provide a geographical disaster recovery plan.
As you can see, there are many opportunities and many factors to keep in consideration. We would be very happy to help you in understanding which platforms would work best for you.
Private, Hybrid and federated Cloud for all.
