Many enterprises are investing more in public cloud, and for good reason. The public cloud offers unparalleled scale and agility; enterprises can quickly deploy new projects without infrastructure investments and spin up or tear down workloads as needed.
And if the IT department is slow to embrace public cloud, individual teams or departments will move without them—a practice called shadow IT. With a credit card and some basic skills they’ve got a public cloud footprint up and running.
But those enterprises and/or the shadow IT factions, are running into tough questions. How can they maintain control over sensitive data? How can they control the cost of operating resource-intensive workloads? And how can they guarantee the performance of mission critical applications?
The answer to these questions is private cloud—but enterprises shouldn’t need to abandon the public cloud promise of scale and agility.
The key is to design a data centre architecture using the same building block approach of public cloud. When infrastructure can be snapped together like Lego bricks, the enterprise can scale their footprint, spin up and tear down workloads with agility, and reduce the threat of shadow IT.
During this web seminar our expert panellists will be investigating how public-cloud-like agility can be brought within the four walls of the data centre, what organisations should be looking for in a hybrid cloud architecture and what is made possible with building block architectures.
