The influence of Cloud Computing is increasing with every passing day. The Covid-19 pandemic ushered in a whole new batch or stream of cloud adopters, in a bid to sustain critical operations via remote work or Work from Home (WFH).
All this buzz around the Cloud and related solutions has sparked the debate that is it viable to go all in on the Cloud in a mid to long term perspective. In this post, we will try to answer this question in the simplest of terms.
The Role of Your Cloud Service Provider (CSP)
Any migration to the Cloud, whether partial or complete, its success will hinge around the capabilities and capacity of your cloud provider like dinCloud. Your CSP has a leading role to play in fulfilling your expectations from cloud services and solutions.
One of the most vital aspects of your cloud provider are its core infrastructure and technology partners. As a provider of premier cloud solutions, dinCloud chooses only the highest quality technology partners and Nutanix is among them.
Nutanix is an established name in the cloud industry, which has shifted its portfolio from hardware to mainly cloud related solutions. The brand is trusted by cloud giants such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud as well.
Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI)
The present day cloud, as we know it, hinges on the hyper converged infrastructure (HCI). It combines or bundles the elements of storage, compute, network and applications into a single package or cluster.
HCI removes major inefficiencies such as latency or sub par end user experience. This issue becomes much more pronounced in the case of processing intensive workloads or when your end users are accessing the cloud environment from afar.
dinCloud also employs HCI for its highly efficient Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops (dinHVDs). This capability is sourced from Nutanix and other top names in the industry. This gives our cloud users the freedom to choose from a wide range of options.
Ease of Management via dinManage
The other key aspect to consider when moving to the Cloud is ease of management. This concept extends to the level of visibility and autonomy into your deployed cloud environment. dinCloud has always strived to deliver the best user experience.
With this very goal in mind, dinCloud offers a very intuitive cloud management portal called dinManage. This portal not only gives you visibility in your cloud environment on dinCloud, but also puts you in the driving seat in terms of managing that environment.
Public, Hybrid or Multi Cloud?
This now brings us to the all important question of the level of cloud adoption. As per the latest industry trends, perhaps the hybrid cloud model is best suited to the vast majority of enterprises out there, especially the small to medium sized businesses (SMBs).
A hybrid cloud lets enterprises allocate different workloads between on premise and cloud environments. Even in terms of cost, the hybrid cloud option is the most pragmatic approach towards your cloud journey.
Despite a hybrid cloud being the most optimal cloud adoption model, the needs of each enterprise will vary. Based on those needs, each entity will have to define its own mix of the public and private cloud or on-premise infrastructure.
What will matter the most is how well have the workloads or processes been allocated to each building block of the IT infrastructure. Feel free to Contact Us for any further information about our leading cloud solutions.
