It's Your Cloud, Shouldn't it Meet All of Your Critical Business Needs?

  By Allison Boccamazzo, TMCnet Web Editor

Think about it – it’s your cloud, it should meet all of your unique business needs and overcome any potential challenges in the process. No one single approach to cloud computing is suitable for every enterprise; that would be like walking into a shoe store and only being able to buy one size or order one thing when going out to your favorite restaurant – it’s simply impractical.

If it’s so impractical then, why is there such an issue with finding the flexibility you need in your cloud computing solution? Shouldn’t it be readily available when and how you need it? Whether you’re looking for a public, private or hybrid cloud solution to meet your mission critical IT needs, you should be guaranteed the reliability, scalability and performance that your business deserves.

Simply put, if you need to do something, you should be able to undoubtedly and seamlessly do it. “Quite simply, cloud is about delivering business agility, flexibility and transparency,” writes Ben Kepes in this recent related article. The way in which it meets your business needs does not need to lie parallel to meeting a series of check boxes, he adds.

By being able to deploy and operate within your cloud the way you want ultimately means less IT interference, disruptions and lower over-all costs. How can you achieve this, though? One word: Elasticity.

Simply put, cloud elasticity implies the ability to shift and allocate resources across different infrastructure so that data needs and resource availability are kept aligned and in sync, which avoids wasteful over-provisioning, explains DABCC. “The problem is that there is no clear-cut delineation between what is and is not elastic, meaning that anyone with a hosted service or enterprise platform can use the term for just about anything they want.”

So then how can you trust that an elastic cloud computing solution is not all talk? One provider of managed hosting, security and IT services, Datapipe (News - Alert), truly offers an unmatched, globally available, elastic solution – its Stratosphere cloud computing platform – which is designed to meet enterprise requirements including usability, governance, compliance and interoperability with both traditional cloud computing platforms and the cloud ecosystem.
