Accelerate Private and Public Clouds

- August 3, 2015 - 3 Comments

The pace of business is accelerating.  As consumers, the internet has changed our expectations for how to order products, services or information as well as how fast it is delivered.  Think about it.   We access a web page, order what we want and complete the transaction.  In some cases, our orders are delivered within hours.

The process is not so simple in the business world.

You have a new project and you want to get started right away.  After weeks of meetings, IT has identified that they have the resources but it will take six to eight weeks for them to make them available.  How would you respond?

This is not an imaginary scenario.  As the world becomes digitized, businesses need to respond with speed and agility to keep pace.  Your employees expect the same level of service delivery and on-line shopping experience that they have as consumers.   These changes are creating the need to transform traditional models to new, cloud-based models that produce the speed, agility and on-line consumer experience your employees anticipate.

Private cloud is being deployed as a means to meet these new service and delivery expectations.  Private cloud delivers speed not just to your data center but across all layers of your organization.  It allows your business to be more productive, efficient and profitable.  The foundation to private cloud is infrastructure and infrastructure does matter.

The combination of Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite and VCE Vblock™ Systems deliver a pre-validated private cloud solution with all the essential automation tools and an infrastructure stack designed to accelerate the deployment of a hybrid-ready private cloud.  Watch this video to learn more.

Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite delivers out-of-box infrastructure automation that spans compute, network, storage and virtualization.  The self-service portal allows employees to order on demand data center, applications or business services that include your best practices and compliance policies. The built-in stack designer allows architects to combine application profiles and infrastructure templates to create applications as a service.  Built-in hybrid capability delivers the same levels of security, control and management to public providers that is available in your private cloud.

Vblock™ Systems from VCE represent the next evolution of IT – one that unleashes simplicity by delivering efficiency and business agility of private cloud environments.  Integration of best-in-class compute, network, and storage technologies from Cisco, EMC, and VMware deliver resources that can be provisioned and managed quickly to meet the changing demands of today’s business.   Pre-integrated, tested and validated, the combination of VCE Vblock™ Systems and Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite simplify and accelerate hybrid ready private clouds.

As the pace of business accelerates, you need to be able to respond quickly to changing business needs and business opportunities.  Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite and VCE Vblock™ Systems deliver a pre-validated hybrid ready private cloud that lets IT better align with business needs as well as deliver new products to your customers faster.
