MOST ENTERPRISES HAVE ADOPTED CLOUD...

THE CHALLENGE REMAINS TO GAIN THE ANTICIPATED ROI

Manual technology evaluation methods are costly. See how your workload placement decisions can lower – or raise – your costs with CloudGenera’s cloud solutions.

Cloud is an operating model, not a target state.

Cloud decisions require a data-driven decision-making process. Each venue presents its own advantages and disadvantages with regard to agility, economics, service level, and security. CloudGenera’s cloud solutions reduces cloud decision making time for customers by 75 percent compared to previous evaluation methods.

Migrate

The process of moving an organization’s databases, digital assets, and new and/or existing applications can have large implications.

Modernize

Deciding to modernize existing application portfolios prior to cloud migration seems like an obvious cost-conscious plan, yet many organizations jump to migrating to the cloud before thinking through the implications of poor decisions.

Optimize

Cloud cost optimization maximizes your business benefits. Reducing where your business is overspending on technology and minimizing waste provides added value for your business.

BEST PRACTICES

Strategies around multi-cloud improve unit economics and agility available in the data center, while also leveraging public cloud services.

Approaches to technology procurement and operations are being disrupted by the proliferation of infrastructure, platform, and software-as-a-service (SaaS) alternatives available in the market. The array of options to consider ranges from modernizing the data center to hosting applications in co-location or regional data center providers, to leveraging public cloud services. Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) present advantages and disadvantages with regard to financial accountability to the variability of agility, economics, services level, security, and cloud governance. 

Many organizations are beginning to discover that it is not uncommon for services and offerings to vary significantly across different data center locations and public cloud instances for the same service. As such, organizations need to adequately execute performance testing of their applications in the venue where they plan to deploy to ensure quality. Certain security and technical capabilities are only available in certain geographic regions; to make sound workload placement decisions you must be aware of the variability of service level, security, and technical capabilities across all venues.

Enterprises are pulling some (sometimes all) of their workloads out of the cloud after receiving costly surprises post-migration. Repatriation is being considered to bring back the sense of control. Even when Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) offer resource utilization management, organizations still can lack control over workload hosting and data storage locations. Un-clouding can be a temporary means while companies construct a well-thought-out modernization and migration plan.

Reducing and managing technology spending with vendor neutrality, cloud data security & compliance, and complete governance over workload placement, CloudGenera’s cloud solutions help you optimize your business and IT spending.
