What does management mean to you in a hybrid cloud environment? Is it about having control over hardware choices or onsite Account Management presence from your cloud vendors?
It’s important to understand how you will manage the different services within your hybrid cloud – and how that management, whether that’s vendor account management or general IT support and management, will differ from platform to platform.
We help lots of customers integrate public cloud services into their IT environment, but for some, they need more management and control than what the public cloud alone can offer.
As part of our whitepaper series on Hybrid Cloud considerations, today, we’re going to look at a number of areas where private cloud and hybrid cloud solutions can offer more management and control to suit your needs. For the full whitepaper, see Hybrid Cloud: Choosing the right cloud for your workload.
Achieving more choice in how you manage your security with a private cloud solution
In our series of blogs, we are looking at how an agile private cloud solution can support your hybrid cloud strategy, as part of our whitepaper Hybrid Cloud: Choosing the right cloud for your workload. CenturyLink works with customers across a range of different cloud types: private, public, hybrid and on-premise IT – but a certain business need or workload fits a certain type of cloud service. We’re helping to uncover which workload fits which cloud type to make it easier for you to find the right hybrid cloud mix for your business.
This time we’re looking at security in a private cloud environment.
When does Private Cloud make the best economic sense for your business?
We sometimes assume that the public cloud is the best place for a resource-hungry application that is expected to scale rapidly. However, in some cases, a different approach may be best suited depending on your application's needs, and how you want to manage scale across your environment.
Today we’re looking at why private cloud can sometimes be the best option for managing scalability within your hybrid cloud estate. (For more info, see our whitepaper on Hybrid Cloud: Choosing the right cloud for your workload).
