How are the enterprises taking the advantages of Virtualization?

Again I would like to share the portion that I read from the whitepaper from HP. This says that the current enterprises are taking a lot of benefit from the virtualization for specific business scenarios. These are listed as below:

  1. Accommodate explosive growth
  2. Manage mergers and acquisitions
  3. Control costs and compliance
  4. Reduce deployment time for client devices
  5. Reduce operational costs
  6. Increase scalability
  7. Provide new services
  8. Enhance customer satisfaction

Cloud Computing: Myths and Realities

What often we see is some of the myths that people misinterprets the Cloud Computing in various ways. Here are some myths and realities of it:

  • Myth : I will always save money using Cloud Computing.
    • The reality is if the cloud computing fits the business requirements, cloud computing helps to save money.
  • Myth : Cloud Computing helps the work done very fast and gives the quick response time.
    • The reality is Cloud computing solutions which employs low-performing assets can result in variable performance, with inherent contention for time on those assets of the business.
  • Myth : Cloud Computing always helps to give me access anytime and anywhere we need.
    • The reality is they only give access within the guaranteed limits.
  • Myth : Cloud Computing provides the security and lowers the risks.
    • The reality is they can comprise the unknown assets in unknown location with the unknown operators.

Thus, the thing is we need to understand the cloud computing. And the myths that are associated with the cloud computing must be replaced by the realities. Not every business fits the cloud computing.

Benefits of private and public clouds

According to the survey, as the reports generated says that cloud computing lets to

  • deploy the application 65% more quickly,
  • scale up and down the business needs by 65%,
  • reduction of replacing the infrastructure by 53%,
  • and introducing the new products and services by 52% faster.

These are the survey results that I found in one of the whitepapers by CIO. It also specifies the benefits of the cloud that are listed as below:

  • For Private Cloud:
    • Increases the IT efficiencies and reduction of the costs
    • shortening the provisioning time.
    • Improved the service license agreement
  • For the Public Cloud :
    • The ability to buy and use the resources as per required.
    • Scale up and down as per business requirements.
    • And also shortening the provisioning time.

Here are some data related to the benefits of public and private cloud that i got from the whitepaper of CIO. Have a look at it.
