Enterprises

The adoption of cloud services and cloud operating models within enterprises is driven by a range of use cases including test and development, variable demand, periodic batch processing and application deployment needs.

Inevitably enterprises are trying to achieve the promise of cloud computing to deliver lower cost, highly scalable, more agile, and more productive IT. More than any other component in the enterprise cloud solution portfolio, cloud orchestration has the ability to rapidly deliver the vendor agnostic freedom, business agility and productivity gains demanded by enterprises. Get it wrong and your enterprise will remain restricted and tied to cost models that are not competitive.

Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator works with your existing investment in enterprise infrastructure while providing a single portal to provision and manage private and public cloud services. Enterprises also need to respond to the demands of users for self service provisioning.

We are seeing the emergence of individuals and departments making use of public cloud services. This can cause many governance and other issues. Internal IT has the opportunity, through orchestration, to be able to respond to this demand while maintaining control.


Challenges:

Challenges within the Cloud Computing Industry
  • Enterprises need to guard against restrictive and expensive cloud orchestration solutions
  • Enterprises need to ‘sweat’ their existing infrastructure investments while benefiting as early as possible from cloud operating models
  • Enterprises need to deploy cloud orchestration that supports, from a single management portal, all of the business needs related to private and public clouds.
  • Enterprises need advanced capability and control over internal metering and billing, self service provisioning, rapid response, individual workload placement and variable scalability.

Opportunities:
