The latest in industry trends based on cloud, colocation, data centers, interconnectivity, security & compliance, and sustainability.
Designing the next-generation, intelligent, software-defined data center requires experience and knowledge of scalable, high-density infrastructure; efficiencies around power, space and cooling; data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and more. Data centers have changed a lot in recent years as technology has improved and increased server density. Several factors like blade servers, virtualization, the demands of cloud computing and big data have, and continue to play a role. These next-generation data centers must be engineered from the ground up to meet not only the current needs of cloud and virtualized deployments, but also be able to scale for the future.
Is your business ready to move to the cloud? If so, then you will need to understand why standardization, resiliency, scaling, and consequences matter when moving to the cloud.
Use this checklist to help protect your investment, mitigate potential risk and minimize downtime during your data center migration.
Determining your organization’s right mix of public, private and hybrid cloud options sets you up to make a smart approach to cloud migration. And all successful migrations begin with a migration plan.
Determining business and technical requirements and considering technology options may be the first two steps to launching a multi-cloud architecture, but step three, understanding your challenges, often proves to be one of the most critical. In the third entry of our five-part blog series, we’ll explore why that is and highlight three specific challenges that shackle many multi-cloud deployments.
After going through the rigorous process of defining requirements, considering technology and addressing potential challenges, evaluating your multi-cloud options should be the fun part. The good news is you have plenty of options to evaluate, and your greatest advantage is understanding all of them.
The first step to constructing and implementing a multi-cloud approach is determining your needs. But once needs are determined, then what? Learn here in the second blog of our five-part blog series.
