Increase Productivity with Cloud Computing

Improving Your Company's Productivity and Efficiency with DataHive's Private Cloud Computing Solution

Private cloud computing can allow businesses to realize higher productivity and efficiency gains. The five key areas where private cloud computing will make the most impact in productivity are as follows:

• Automation

Once the initial cloud environment is set up properly, maintenance functions become just a matter of using the management console.

• Self Service

Self service management of the cloud services has been one of the basic ideas behind the cloud offering. End users and operational teams alike can come to such a portal to configure what kind of service they need and get it up and running in a matter of minutes instead of days. The benefits of self service portal are big in terms of cutting down the “time to market”. The number of expert technical people required also goes down substantially.

• Dynamic Scaling and Problem-Free Upgrades

The basic nature of cloud computing is that it is stretchable in providing resources. Scaling up when there is need, potentially in real time, and scaling down when there is not so much demand, brings down the costs. Upgrades to servers / components / services are simplified as well.

• Resilience and Reliability

Private cloud computing offers consumers data redundancy and security. What private cloud storage does is it mirrors data across multiple servers.

DataHive has failover, which further adds to the reliability of an application hosted on the private cloud. With failover, whenever one of the systems goes down for some reason, the cloud infrastructure erects a new VM instance to replace that one typically without customer realizing what has happened.

• Standardizing the IT Infrastructure.

Cloud paradigm forces standardization, by way of virtualization and automation of services across the organization. This directly impacts some services such as email and security, which are critical to the organization yet can easily be classified as a regular out-of-the-box service. Cloud business strategies add a lot of objectivity to the whole enterprise IT infrastructure, and the expenditure by forcing discussions and choices around financial, legal, procedural and standards. This in turn creates measurable objectives in requirements, traffic, SLAs, etc. With these measurable objectives in place, it becomes easy to think about outsourcing complete IT blocks, allowing cost reductions and time for genuine innovation at the workplace.
