Cisco: Three Questions to Ask About Hybrid Cloud
Many hyperconverged buyers have infrastructure responsibility in their data center. And if you are an infrastructure manager, Cisco HyperFlex make you job easier by combining hardware and software into a pre-integrated solution that scales out network, storage, and compute resources in the data center.
But what should you think about when extending hyperconverged to hybrid cloud?
Cisco CloudCenter adds hybrid cloud management orchestration that works across by HyperFlex and public cloud IaaS providers. But going hybrid with cloud is a new experience for many infrastructure managers, with new issues to consider.
Three questions to ask
If your IT organization is already going hybrid or just starting to think about adding public cloud workload deployment options, or if your IT consumers are already going to the cloud because it is easier than working through legacy IT service delivery systems — then ask yourself (and your broader IT organization) these three questions:
1. Is consumption variable and unpredictable?
Call it bursting. Call it hybrid capacity optimization. Call it flexibility to meet changing business needs. Whatever you call it, the issue here is that if you are responsible for keeping an eye on capacity, you may not know capacity requirements before a new business project is launched. Or demands for on-premises capacity may vary seasonally, or during specific stages in a development project.
