Three questions to ask about hybrid cloud

If your organization is thinking about expanding cloud capacity and going hybrid, you should ask yourself the following three questions.

  1. Is my service consumption variable and unpredictable?

    Optimizing hybrid capacity is essential to remain an agile organization. But it is difficult to optimize what has not yet been implemented. Capacity requirements only present themselves when the project is underway, and they may also change during the course of project development.

    In other words, service consumption is variable. For instance, IT may occasionally deploy a temporary marketing campaign platform that will run for weeks. Or they may deploy a computerized test taking platform that runs just a few days, but with unpredictable demand throughout the semester. And it is even possible that all the computerized tests are scheduled at the same time.

    So how do you prepare for such variable and unpredictable service consumption? By automating deployment and balancing workloads both on-premises and in the public cloud using hyperconverged infrastructure. Proximus hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), powered by Cisco HyperFlex, can help you to anticipate capacity requirements and allows a higher ROI of your physical and virtual infrastructure by maximizing capacity utilization.

  2. Does IT want to bring cloud experience back on-premises?

    Maintaining control over your public and private cloud can be very inefficient if it is not all automated and orchestrated from a central body. Often data is spread across different departments that do not communicate openly or share data willingly. The HyperFlex solution centralizes your cloud experience, bringing it back to your data center. This allows for a single point of management where workload deployment is done automatically.

    With just one interface, HyperFlex offers an easy way to deploy a virtual machine or a fully configured application stack on-premise, rather than at a remote facility or across different departments.

  3. Do I want to optimize capacity by harnessing the power of automation?

    When your data center technology and your cloud APIs are fully automated on-premises, it allows you to integrate data and applications faster, easier and more efficiently. This means you save IT time to focus on more complex projects. More importantly you can reduce service consumption that does not add business value, optimizing your resource utilization and its funding.

    Proximus HCI, powered by HyperFlex, allows you to harness the power of automation to reduce unnecessary consumption and optimize resource utilization on-premises, cutting your cloud expenses.

Ready to go?

If you have variable workloads, you do not want to lose time and money on inaccuracy, high-latency and inefficient data management. Instead, use automation to optimize your resources, and enjoy a single user-friendly interface in your own data center.
