Employees in Private Cloud

A recurring question I hear is “how to start a private cloud hosting service project?”. In my opinion, the first step is to know exactly what services the IT organization provides to its users. Then measure the service levels achieved today. And identify the service levels that users expect. This analysis is also important to measure how much it costs for the company to offer such service levels. With such information one can evaluate the impact of implementing a private cloud in these services.

There are several services that may migrate into the clouds with very positive results. A simple example: imagine the process in which development teams seeking physical resources for your project. Suppose a physical server takes 45 to 60 days to be hired and delivered operationally. Timepiece this period, the development team is underused and delivery of the project is offset by the same time period, perhaps even sacrificing some competitive advantage that two months would bring.

Suppose now a private cloud created to meet the developers in a dynamic way in which they request resources (virtual servers) via a self-service portal and provisioning of these resources is that in a few hours instead of two months? Now imagine you are about 200 projects per year … The benefits become clearly tangible.

Other variables can be used to study “business case” used to assess whether the service may or may not be adopted in the cloud hosting services. A better use of servers is one example. The servers used for development environments tend to use a very low, almost going through periods of idleness. An automatic management, enabling provisioning and release these resources greatly increases their use and thus possibly fewer servers (less capital) will be needed. Also it is possible to postpone any extensions to this park (again better application of capital). Certainly CFOs thank!

The productivity of the technical team is a factor that deserves serious attention. We have spoken with the development team, but we must also look at the technical staff responsible for maintaining these servers. How long they spend doing upgrades of hardware and software? And if much of this work is automated? The benefits will also be easily tangibilizar.

Concept And Benefits Of Private Cloud

Most companies currently has infrastructure higher than they actually use and, in general, is not balanced. This means that the use of resources is not optimized and when some servers and applications work with maximum load another set of resources is idle most of the time.

The keyword related to the adoption of private clouds is to reduce costs by optimizing IT with which infrastructure resources are available and can be used in a more homogeneous way.

The private cloud services enables to provide the resources that are on the servers of a company through its network or Internet, so scalable and highly available. With this approach, the company can have the benefits of cloud computing services while maintaining control and customization of IT practices it already has, see some benefits of private clouds:

Shared Resources

In a private cloud, resources are shared with business units to drive efficiency and enable larger scale. By allowing multiple consumers to share resources, IT infrastructure becomes more efficient as it is used in a complete way.

Elastic model

Once shared, the resources devoted to any one service can be expanded or reduced through automation or workflow. This means that the IT services can be quickly adjusted with greater or lesser ability to meet business requirements.

Self Catering

In a private cloud environment, the demands from consumers and service providers are centralized through an interactive portal that allows automatic provisioning of resources on demand.

Customization And Control

A private cloud is built on the dedicated resources of your company. That means you will have more control and customization over your cloud architecture.

The eNlight cloud strategy developed by ESDS R&D Team is the most efficient with regard mainly to cost savings, which is up to four (4) to ten (10) times less expensive than the solution available in market.
