Building a Hybrid Cloud with Bluemix

Published By: IBM APAC     Published Date: Aug 25, 2017
Transitioning from traditional IT to cloud IT is not an all-at-once, big bang effort. Rather, the cloud adoption process should be an agile, incremental process. And the first part of that process is understanding the different cloud models. Contrary to popular belief, cloud isn’t necessarily only public cloud, multi-tenant, and hosted in a vendor’s data center. It can also be private cloud, single-tenant, and/or hosted in a corporate data center. Often the best solution is a hybrid combination of these options. This paper will show you the advantages of hybrid cloud applications and explore the considerations you should make to find an optimal solution for your organization.

6 Ways to Save with VMC on AWS

Published By: CloudHealth by VMware     Published Date: Aug 22, 2019
A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017 prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization approaches”. This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure. Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be guilty of overspending. This eBook will offer 6 Ways to

Enterprise data warehouse optimization

Published By: Group M_IBM Q418     Published Date: Oct 15, 2018
The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data. Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.

AWS Optimization Guide

Published By: Ahead     Published Date: Nov 15, 2018
As organizations are moving to AWS to gain the operational efficiencies of the cloud, they’re realizing the importance of a well-architected framework. This framework, which consists of twelve pillars, is wellintended, secure, and compliant, but is not exactly easy to achieve. Our clients frequently tell us that two pillars in particular--Security and Cost Optimization--are the most difficult to get right. This is partially because while advanced tooling is required to manage cloud complexities and compliance, selecting, deploying, and operating these tools is costly and burdensome. Without optimizing your environment for these two pillars, you are preventing your organization from scaling up. This has resulted in many businesses that are restricted to a minimal use of AWS, negating any benefit of having adopted the cloud in the first place. AHEAD uses the AWS Well-Architected Framework, which will walk you through common missteps and how to get it right.
