Private cloud offers business units and DevOps faster access to essential IT resources with the security controls, compliance, and continuity expected from the modern data center. Now teams can rapidly spin up infrastructure and pool resources with cloud advantages in the on-premises environment.
Respond quickly to changing workload demands.
Provide access only to authenticated users and devices.
Deliver more computing power with less physical hardware.
Spin up a virtual machine in minutes.
Single-instance software supports multiple use cases.
Always-on resources provide on-demand data availability.
Private cloud falls into three broad categories based on the service required. But the implementation process is similar for each: 1) Get clear input from business units which problems need to be solved; 2) Determine your platform of choice, for example Microsoft, VMWare, or OpenStack*; 3) Start small and grow.
Collaborating with Intel, Tata Communications chose OpenStack as the architecture for its cloud portfolio, creating an agile software-defined infrastructure for the company.
Their next-generation cloud based on Intel® architecture and the Mirantis OpenStack* cloud platform allows previously locked infrastructure resources to be pooled, shared, and accessed on demand, enabling greater business and IT agility.
Johan Carlsson, CTO of ICT Services at Umeå University discusses their experiences and effective use of cloud computing in educational institutions, including the considerable benefits gained through automated provisioning.
In addition to private cloud, there are two other approaches for enterprise cloud deployment: public and hybrid. See how Intel® technology makes these options viable.
Leverage cloud infrastructure from flexible, off-premises service providers to quickly expand compute resources, leverage skilled talent, and add new capabilities for IT and DevOps.
With on-demand services, unified management, and interoperability, IT organizations can optimize infrastructure, efficiently utilize resources, and speed time to market.
SUSE OpenStack Cloud* helps IT organizations meet the increasing demand for agility and speed without vendor lock-in.
