Our view on a change oriented Cloud Computing Architecture, encapsulates a holistic solution vision consisting of modular layers of value:
Our modular, solution based methodology has delivered project success for hundreds of customers, as illustrated below.
The single pane of glass gives a central dashboard through which all services are exposed and fulfilled.
Typically, the journey begins with the infrastructure, which can consist of legacy networking, software defined networking components, or mixture of private resources in the data canter such as hypervisors, flexpods, vblocks, or other hardware. You may have a number of public cloud providers such as Amazon or Azure. Regardless of where you infrastructure resides, you need a comprehensive IaaS solution which can offer elastic computing, network and storage, which can scale as the environment scales. This forms you Cloud Computing Architecture whether that is private or public cloud.
Once customers have an IaaS offering, the natural progressions to optimise the current investment made in infrastructure and compute capabilities of memory,storage and CPU. Our customers can see tremendous value and cost savings from Hybrid Cloud Management Platform that continuously analyzes application consumption, costs and compliance constraints and automatically allocates resources in real-time. This assures application performance by giving workloads the resources they need when they need them.
The story gets real interesting, when we look at managing applications in multi cloud environments with a solution which can model complex n-tier applications and deploy them in a few clicks to over 19 datacenter, private and public cloud environments.
We always integrate the data center world with IT Service Management environments. The boundaries are changing and in the new digital age, companies needs innovative and agile solutions. An orchestration solution enables end to end service delivery which requires integration via APIs, to functions like CMDB, helpdesk, monitoring and asset management, etc… For example, when you are deploying an application to a cloud, you may need to retrive the application pricing information from your billling system, the cloud pricing from the cloud provider, and then when the order is submitted you may need to open a ticket in your helpdesk, create a configuration item in the CMDB, send email notificaitons, and also send messages to the end customer informig them the appicaton has been deployed.
IT is here to serve the various lines of business and to ensure the end user and a high level of customer satisfaction, whichever industry you’re in. Hence there is a compelling need for a solution which manages the performance and availability of applications across cloud computing environments as well as inside the data center. If we take a few steps back and look at what we’ve done– We’ve created VMs, networks, storage, applications, containers, etc.. in public and private clouds. So we need to make sure we a high level of monitoring and event management to ensure maximum up time and service continuity.
The final piece to the puzzle is the making sense of the masses of data being generated by service consumption and customer transactions. We need a solution which makes data-driven IT a reality with real-time analytics and cloud-based machine learning. Think of the value of analysing every single digital interaction occurring on the network and turn that data into the most accurate and timely source of intelligence for everyone from IT Operations to Security to the CIO.
