Self-service is an advanced element of private cloud environments that improves management efficiency and business agility, as well as lowering operating expenses. A self-service environment streamlines the interaction between users and the IT department. It empowers internal consumers of IT services to request and receive appropriately configured resources on demand with minimal IT intervention. NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, the NetApp Management SDK with open APIs, and key ecosystem partnerships enable enterprises to easily integrate their orchestration solutions and custom management tools with the NetApp storage service catalog for automated storage provisioning and protection. Customers can thereby create a self-service, web-based portal that efficiently delivers IT as a service to virtualization administrators, application administrators, and users, while enabling IT staff to focus on higher value activities.

In today's business environment, organizations of all sizes are struggling to maintain the advanced IT capabilities they need to be competitive while reining in cost and complexity. Shifting to off-premise hosted models, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and business process outsourcing, is a common activity undertaken to manage costs. One of the main challenges businesses face in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery models is the task of synchronizing data and integrating the multitude of systems already in datacenters with new cloud-based applications, not to mention within the cloud itself. Traditionally, this required organizations to leverage existing tools as well as custom development. This white paper looks at how two enterprises encountered problems with cloud integration and adopted IBM WebSphere Cast Iron to solve their immediate problems and extend use more broadly across their organizations.

VMware vCloud Director has created tremendous potential for service providers and enterprises to deliver agile and cost effective Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) through its ability to automate the self-provisioning of virtual data center service offerings by customers. Since a multitude of commodity cloud providers have appeared seemingly overnight, service providers and enterprises must harness technologies like vCloud Director to reduce the overall cost of delivering compute services. With automated self-service provisioning in place, the next wave of opportunities for cost and performance optimization lies in operations management. This document details how VMTurbo Operations Manager delivers unique business value, addressing significant gaps in VMware vCloud offerings.

Businesses receive a number of benefits from running their IT operations within virtualized cloud environments, including: automation, economics and efficieny. Yet, as more mission-critical applications and workloads are run within cloud environments, IT staff lack the means for effective management. Businesses need new tools that meet cloud-era demands and deliver the same benefits as cloud computing itself: automation, economics and efficiency.

An Intelligent Roadmap for Capacity Planning Many organizations apply overly simplistic principles to determine requirements for compute capacity in their virtualized data centers. These principles are based on a resource allocation model which takes the total amount of memory and CPU allocated to all virtual machines in a compute cluster, and assumes a defined level of over provisioning (e.g. 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 12:1) in order to calculate the requirement for physical resources. Often managed in spreadsheets or simple databases, and augmented by simple alert-based monitoring tools, the resource allocation model does not account for actual resource consumption driven by each application workload running in the operational environment, and inherently corrodes the level of efficiency that can be driven from the underlying infrastructure.

Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. At the time this definition was published, “cloud” was already part of industry parlance, and was beginning to take root in the general lexicon. Additionally, global business spending for infrastructure and services related to the cloud had topped $78 billion. This year, enterprise spending on the cloud will reach an estimated $174 billion, and is expected to climb to $235 billion by 2017.2 Inevitably, as both business IT and consumer mindsets evolve toward the cloud in coming years, we will continue to witness dramatic growth in IT products in some areas, and significant reductions in other areas—resulting in a reshaping of the industry as a whole.

If your company is using cloud computing services today, it’s highly likely you are already in a hybrid cloud configuration. The key question is whether you are actively managing this reality. In January 2014, HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise hybrid cloud environments and how they are being managed. Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that enterprise IT operations teams struggle to recognize and manage this hybrid state — a hypothesis that was proven out.

Organizations around the world are embracing the economic and operational benefits of cloud computing. Whether organizations are extending internal resources or fully deploying on Microsoft Azure, the ability to take advantage of the business benefits of cloud require that organizations continue to meet key security requirements. Azure delivers a trusted cloud infrastructure on which customers can design, build and manage their own cloud applications and infrastructure. While Azure provides security controls for the infrastructure and change to virtualization layers, deploying organizations are responsible for deploying and maintaining security for the guest operating systems, applications, and data in order to protect against malware attacks, zero-day vulnerabilities and data breaches. Read this white paper to lean more about Trend Micro Instant-On Cloud Security for Microsoft Azure.

Virtualization and cloud computing can help your organization achieve significant savings in data center hardware costs, operational expenditures, and energy demands— while achieving improvements in quality of service and business agility. However, as data centers continue to transition from physical to virtual and now increasingly, cloud environments, traditional security can slow down provisioning, become difficult to manage, and cause performance lag. As you scale your virtual environment and adopt software defined networking, evolving your approach to security can reduce time, effort, and impact on CPU, network, and storage. Read this white paper to learn more about virtualization and cloud computing.

Enterprises grapple with a host of challenges that are spurring the creation of hybrid clouds: collections of computing infrastructure spread across multiple data centers and multiple cloud providers. This new concept often provokes uncertainty, which must be addressed head on. As more applications and computing resources move to the cloud, enterprises will become more dependent on cloud vendors, whether the issue is access, hosting, management, or any number of other services. Cloud consumers want to avoid vendor lock-in—having only one cloud provider. They want to know that they will have visibility into data and systems across multiple platforms and providers. They want to be able to move servers and storage around without a negative impact on application availability. The good news is that more solutions become available every day, but with a learning curve and numerous management challenges and considerations.
