Is the future hyperscaled?
But how will you choose between private cloud or the proposition of the well-known ‘hyperscalers’? Cloud providers like Amazon AWS are usually named in this fashion, thanks to their ability to deliver on hyper scalability. The main advantage of choosing a public cloud is that the solutions are catered to many specific applications or use cases. You might have heard of EC2, S3, and Lambda before. However, a service such as AWS Ground Station would only be known by space scientists. Whether you’re a developer that uses cloud computing for cloud-based applications or a system administrator who constantly archives data. Most hyperscalers have a complete solution for any of these use cases.
For the fact that so many possibilities already exist within the public cloud space we decided to build upon these offerings with Cloud On-Ramp. Through Cloud On-Ramp a direct and SLA guaranteed link with several cloud providers (Google, AWS, Azure) is made through our Zumiv Elastic Network platform.
Public cloud offerings are generally a good idea if youalready have a specific idea in mind. These services are typically used for instant solutions.If you are in need for morededicated servers resources that can be reutilized at will, a private cloud would fit that description. The same can be said in relation to private cloud for preferencessuch as unlimited bandwidth, low latency, and compliancy. To summarize,when and for what purpose do you require cloud computing?
Getting a grip on your technical knowledge
The argument for public cloud is broad, but none are favored to speed up decision making. However, when we discuss storing important data the opinions are strong: don’t store sensitive data in the cloud. Specifically, when you have knowledge that gives you a better position in the market or isn’t even worth sharing within the company. We would suggest using solutions where you have full control over your resources and protection of your data, for example on-premises servers, dedicated servers, or a private cloud solution.
we believe in that there is truth in allowing customers to have full control over their resources, tailor made to specific and future needs. Without the usual hassle like hardware maintenanceand capacity planning. This is one of the main reasons that we offer a private cloud solution. Zumiv has 15 years of experienceand knowledge ofdatacenters, servers, virtualization, storage, and networking.So, you might see some facets of our DNA in this solution. Our private cloud is a VMware virtualized environment with a highly secured and customizableHA , where thehigh-performanceiSCSI all-flash SAN can manage consistent IOPS, even during peak workloads.Backed by our 10 Tbit/s worldwide network and our anti-DDoS solution (Worldshield). This fully in-house developed solution can be customized further by adding other solutions likefiber to the business, multi-location, and is suitable for hybrid cloud setups (through cloud on-ramp, bare metal, colocation, or a combination).As all these IT solutions are built upon our Zumiv Elastic Network the private cloud solution is cost efficient, highly redundant, and scalable to future-proof your IT infrastructure.
If you have a broad knowledge of IT, from hardware to software, choosing private cloud as a solution is solid. However, the answer might not surprise you; whether you choose to use cloud computing, it is highly dependent on the use case. A more definitive answer might be getting a grip on your technical knowledge and use the insights from this article. Perhaps your cloud application might be better off on a physical server. Another insight could be that the existing IT solution can be interconnected through Cloud On-Ramp. Or you might conclude that DDoS mitigation could better be handled by a third party. This allows you to focus on your business, without having to worry about missing expertise.
