Private clouds and hybrid infrastructure for Amazon AWS
If you have already developed and deployed apps in the Amazon AWS public cloud, you are probably like many of our customers who are finding that there is additional flexibility required to meet all your app and data needs. For example, Amazon in some cases does not have a region in the country or location that is required by government or business compliance rules or have the additional controls that are required for specific enterprise security needs. Sometimes AWS simply doesn’t offer the specific configurations needed for certain application performance requirements. In other cases, steady-state applications that are running constantly can be run less expensively on a private cloud or you may simply want to leverage some of your existing capex hardware investments.
While AWS offers the agility needed for new requirements or unexpected workloads, enterprises also need a solution that protects that investment while providing the flexibility to: use a private cloud to control costs on longer running apps; offer specialized resources to speed application performance or delivery; have the compliance controls required for more sensitive applications.
Current research is showing that 38% of application workloads are already in the cloud—and organizations are pushing this to 56% by 2018[i]. Finding your right mix of public and private cloud that offer specialized performance and compliance capabilities to power your apps and optimize costs at the same time, is critical to staying competitive. In fact, 68% of customers have either migrated apps from a public cloud to a private cloud or plan to, to meet unique requirements that only a private cloud can meet, all while retaining the flexibility and agility of cloud services. You might have thought it difficult to design and install a private cloud that truly works seamlessly with AWS—one that allows you to develop, test and deploy on the right private or public cloud destination without any issues.
