Vast as a Cloud Management Service

Today, companies that have IT professionals that take care of cloud computing strategies are ones most likely to prosper. Employing cloud computing strategies within your business is starting to become a critical prerequisite. In broader terms, cloud computing offers a wide range of benefits. Cloud computing is the new rise in technology where businesses are moving away from having local on-premise machines and IT infrastructure.

Ever since the onset of the pandemic, more sectors of business are relying on cloud computing services. There is even a study in the US that showed that 90% of the financial services are using some form of cloud computing due to the rapid shift to remote work model. This shows that cloud computing is booming.

Cloud Migration, and the Different Models

Cloud computing is your IT infrastructure in a data center. Typically, businesses do not know where this data center is, not do they own the underlying physical hardware. For instance, in a cloud computing environment, business are  able to purchase computing power, storage space, database and other functions that on-premise infrastructure provides.

In terms of the existing models of cloud computing, you will find two main models. The first being the public cloud, while the second is the private cloud. A private cloud refers to a storage and virtual solution that is owned by only a single company. Compared to this, a public cloud relates to an infrastructure that is massively shared. This means that there can be thousands of business on one virtual infrastructure that are sharing resources and co-locating services.

For a business to migrate to the cloud, they need to evaluate their on-premise data centers so that they can accurately migrate a portion of their services to the cloud.

Aiding Enterprises for Effective Expenditure through Hybrid Migration Model

Hybrid Cloud is a Multi-solution approach that is changing the game for enterprises. Hybrid Cloud boils down as a mixture of a private and public IT environment. Essential, the two cloud types work in tandem to run your workloads and applications. VAST enables companies to use this multiple model approach, so that they can reap the benefits from both migration types, while avoid some of the costly setbacks at the same time.

Utilizing both the cloud models offer benefits that scale beyond the scope of only expenditure saved, they also help you move the ERP layer to the public cloud from the private cloud. This back and forth sharing of layers helps distribute the workload and also runs operations in a more orchestrated and efficient manner.

Taking advantage of a public cloud while predominantly running operations on a private cloud allows you access to seemingly endless public resources. This helps businesses scale their applications and features. Another advantage is that it frees businesses to be locked in with a specific vendor.

According to the Swanson (President of VAST), the future is moving towards hybrid models of cloud, where businesses will leverage from portable workload resources between private and public cloud. The key driving factor when utilizing this model will be the accessibility and aggregation of data in multiple areas of the cloud.
