ULTIMATE IT FLEXIBILITY & EFFICIENCY
The cloud computing paradigm is bringing new levels of efficiency and flexibility to IT infrastructure and application delivery. These architectures provide on-demand computing resources that are easier than ever to provision, manage, scale, and, most importantly, align with business objectives that are changing at an ever-increasing pace. But, due to a number of factors including application architecture, customization/integration, and security & compliance concerns, Public Cloud offerings aren’t a fit for all applications or all organizations.
ENTER THE PRIVATE CLOUD
Private Cloud solutions are fully-virtualized, fully-integrated infrastructure designs that provide the flexibility, efficiency, elasticity, and self-service features of cloud computing through architectures that are easily deployed by organizations within their firewalls and under their control. Ideally, these internal infrastructure deployments are based on industry-standard cloud architectures that enable easy integration with Public Cloud architectures for seamless ‘Federated’ Hybrid Cloud infrastructure deployments in the future.
CONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE: THE EVOLUTION OF VIRTUALIZATION & THE FOUNDATION OF THE PRIVATE CLOUD
Virtualization technologies at the Compute, Storage, and Network ‘layers’ have enabled tremendous advances in efficiency and flexibility through consolidation and software automation. However, these IT stack layers are still largely separate today, with little end-to-end visibility for even management and monitoring, much less automated provisioning, elasticity, or user self-service. To realize true Cloud Computing features and benefits, the infrastructure must operate as a fully-virtualized, fully-integrated entity, with awareness of each layer and integration/coordination between them.
Converged Infrastructure leverages the virtualization capabilities of each layer, integrates them into a single unified infrastructure, and wraps end-to-end management/automation/orchestration software around the entire stack to enable automated application and business-process-centric provisioning of coordinated IT resources.
THE RESULT: EFFICIENCY, FLEXIBILITY, RESPONSIVENESS, & COST SAVINGS
Converged Infrastructure Solutions deliver extreme advances in infrastructure efficiency, flexibility, and responsiveness… allowing you to service your business’s IT needs faster, easier, and less expensively than ever before. Converged Infrastructure/Private Cloud is THE next phase in the evolution of virtualization and IT service delivery architecture.
HOW VERISTOR CAN HELP
As experts in Server/Compute, Network, and Storage Virtualization, Veristor can fully support your organization’s Private Cloud/Converged Infrastructure initiatives from Assessment and Business Case/ROI justification through Architecture Design, Proof of Concept, and Production deployment.
Hyper-convergence is next-generation, software-defined infrastructure technology that combines storage, compute, virtualization and networking capabilities all into one appliance. With hyper-convergence, commodity servers provide virtualized building blocks of computing power and storage – an efficient and flexible means to deploy clusters of highly available infrastructure. By being virtualized, this infrastructure can then be managed from anywhere, offering ease of setup, improved performance and above all, simplicity.
In the age of Agile development, companies have come to depend on IT infrastructures that move at the speed of business. It is no longer just about being fast and available, it is about being agile and responsive – with provisions in place to scale rapidly, on-demand.
