Investment Protection and Flexible Scalability for Networks

sdn-nfvIT teams in companies need flexibility and business agility. These bind next generation new cloud technologies in the data center architectures. One of the most pressing questions is how to achieve flexibility and scalability to the increasingly unpredictable peak load during application intercept traffic and at the same time to meet the strict service level agreements (SLAs) performance.

Bringing these often results in conflicting objectives in line, assuming that each element of a larger data center infrastructure itself offers the capacity and performance according to the conditions.

Modern enterprise data centers are extremely dynamic. Among the current trends and events that increase the application loads regularly include:

  • Introduction of new applications – The implementation of new e-commerce and Rich media applications and other services leads to new and often considerable Network loads.
  • Introduction of new technologies – Some technology solutions such as application and Desktop virtualization can increase the network load in the data center significantly. Others, such as VoIP and video, create an equal even load because the increased traffic volume comes into play in all network areas.
  • Add new users – Mergers and acquisitions, geographic expansion, demographic extensions and increase the product range and organic growth are usual activities for virtually every company and can lead to a sudden increase in volume traffic data
  • The dynamic data center – The widespread adoption of cloud architectures and virtualization technologies transforming enterprise data centers into private clouds. As a result, it creates an environment that, in a very short time, if not automatically adjusted to a new and changed business needs – and the ability to changes in resource requirements to collect network performance and applications.

Network usage patterns and the total exposure can also occur due to many unpredictable factors to which IT has no direct influence such as new marketing campaigns, promotions, and numerous other business initiatives. It is also not possible to say when a new technology, a new services or content will spread suddenly rapidly.

These are regular events in our everyday business. The challenge for IT is not in being able to prevent it – as in many other types of threats in the IT environments. The point is rather to ensure that the Network and Application Infrastructure should have a capacity sufficient to cope with these scenarios.

The reactive approach is too risky

One possible approach for CIOs is to respond to the increase in demand for IT flexibility. Each increase in demand requires to evaluate the situation and then to plan hardware upgrades and implement hardware or install additional systems.

The proactive approach at the other end is too costly. A proactive approach to the capacity of the network and application infrastructure has usually led to over-provisioning systems to the otherwise expensive and disruptive hardware upgrades.

How to Create a Roadmap for Successful Managed Services and Cloud Migration?

global-solutionIt is very likely that your company has experimented with the cloud. Maybe you have moved the website of the company to a service-based on-demand cloud infrastructure. It is possible that developers are testing new applications in the cloud before publishing them. Chances are your fellow online business subscribe to several Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, whether IT has participated in the decision or not.

However, no company has succeeded experiencing without a proper roadmap. To maximize investment and the value achieved in managed services and cloud solutions, all businesses whether large or small, should start with a road map. Each company must make their own decisions where and how cloud solutions are needed to be adapted to meet your needs.

What a roadmap will do is to ensure that each of the actions on the cloud that the company takes to respond to current needs remain valid in the future. But where do you start? The development of a roadmap for managed services strategy has to be overwhelming and involves a bit of planning, duties and collaboration.

Why Custom Services?

The custom managed service is a flexible business model. Its general features speak of a broad set of business challenges, and specific cloud services offered by different providers can vary widely in their ability to meet the needs of a company. Companies can go to the custom cloud services to achieve some (or all) of the following advantages:

  • Deferral of capital investment: When budgets are tight, many companies prefer to spend the same operating budget rather than commit a capital investment in hardware with a long payback.
  • Faster time to market: The cloud applications can be deployed in a few minutes, hours or days instead of weeks or months earlier, allowing the companies to respond more quickly to changes occurring in the market.
  • Application Scalability: The cloud solutions adapt to fluctuations in use without performance degradation, so the company does not have to redesign systems for use in working tips.
  • Improved quality and consistency: Applications that are created, tested and implanted into solid managed services and cloud platforms have fewer errors because developers are working with proven templates and can easily replicate the production environment.
  • Resilience: Many companies choose cloud solutions to support their business continuity plans and disaster recovery, ensuring compliance and best practices for data availability.

Each type of services either public or private, on-site or hosted Infrastructure response to different needs. Therefore, there is a unique approach to custom solutions that is best for all companies. It is also the cause why it is so important for each company to develop its own strategy for cloud.

5 Steps to Build a Road Map

Below are guidelines that help companies create a roadmap:

  • Communicate: The adoption of managed services and cloud benefits the entire company, not just the IT department but all important aspect of businesses. Communicate your plans early with senior management and your fellow business line, emphasizing on the advantages of them. Talk to the senior management team on how a corporate IT strategy based on the cloud can encourage innovation and increase market responsiveness while reducing investment in capital. With business line managers, show how the cloud can streamline your application requests through IT, reduce time-out to market and improve collaboration. Report on the cloud can benefit your project in two ways. First, it may compel in the budget priorities that need to support the project; And in second place, ensure the cooperation of the business line managers when considered the applications that need to move to the cloud.
  • Create an inventory of your workloads: Try and not move everything to the cloud, at least in the foreseeable future. But you need to think about which workloads should be migrated and when. And you need to start with an inventory. This can be a big task or small tasks depending on what you choose. Obviously, the department already has the list of current applications it manages, but you can expand the inventory to include workloads that are not currently automated or are partially automated such as business analytics functions carried out promptly using spreadsheets in a functional department. By capturing these workloads, IT occupies a better position to make decisions regarding all the extent of cloud options, including the integration of software functionality.¬†When making the inventory, pay particular attention to traditional applications that have become cumbersome or showing poor performance. They may be candidates for a complete redesign that may include redo for optimum performance in the cloud.
  • Evaluate workloads: The suitability of custom services is a function of several subjective and objective criteria, including security, availability, and accessibility how applications interact with other workloads. A good starting point is to assess how critical and how strategic is the workload for the company.
  • Assigning workloads to cloud services and initiate migration: A flexible model of cloud solution offers many environments, cost counterparts, performance, and functionality. The hosted private clouds provide a high degree of security and performance monitoring. A hybrid cloud may be the best choice for workloads that feed on various sources, including the private cloud in their own With a variety of solutions on the market, choose a trusted and expertise provider with the broadest portfolio, flexible and service-level agreement performance that meet your needs.
  • Manage the cloud: Make sure the vendor offers a robust set of management tools that allow you to optimize the cloud. Make sure you know how you are using the cloud. Periodically check usage reports either to bill departments or simply to ensure efficiency. Choose a managed service provider that offers management tools to be utilized in the traditional IT environment, or by supporting standards that enable tools to access your current console. That way you can manage the entire environment coherently and streamlining administrative functions and maximizing value for the company.

Your Robust and Secure Custom Solution Between Traditional and Dedicated Environment

MadeIT Inc. has always looked at new ways to implement into the market. We have always thought ahead of new services, new technology and new smart solutions with enterprise-level reliability, state-of-the-art computing capacities, and a 24/7 technical support!

At MadeIT, our goal is very simple to provide maximized efficiently and minimized costs and provide the best customer service. Following are some of the custom solutions we offer backed by state of the art infrastructure.

High Availability

An environment is considered highly available when it tolerates the failure of any of its components without any human intervention. Traditional environments lack redundant computing nodes, and in most cases no access switches are redundant. MadeIT offers infrastructure support and otherwise facilitate carriers establishing services at the data center, and qualified carriers can enjoy complimentary space and power within our redundant meet-me-rooms, free use of diverse fiber entrances.

High Performance

Almost all platforms have equipment at some point on the infrastructure, but it is only in the Layer 3 routing, however, the most problematic when it comes to being shared resources such as CPU, RAM, and storage. MadeIT engages highly oversized systems that offer not only far superior performance to commonly available dedicated hosting solutions but also guaranteed high performance.

Enjoy Direct Efficiencies of Virtualization

Virtualized platforms manage computing resources and storage very efficiently. The Public Cloud providers incorporate these efficiencies to their business model as minor investments needed with lower operating costs. MadeIT custom solutions offer customer full control over the oversubscription of CPU and memory and seamlessly integrates with our other Virtual Infrastructure offerings such as Hosted Exchange, SharePoint, Active Directory, Lync and much more.

Easy Migration From Other Suppliers

Other benefits of virtualization are the easy migration between vendors who are based on standards and that no restrictions on its customers, as is the case MadeIT.

Colocation-Solutions

Detailed Knowledge of Infrastructure

MadeIT, like most dedicated hosting providers, provides detailed information about the technical infrastructure and its physical location.

Durability Guaranteed Information

MadeIT stores customer information in centralized locations. It allows backup and replication between independent systems transparent to the customer service.

Bare Metal Prices

Public Cloud providers have been applying much higher profit margins than those implemented in the dedicated hosting, supported by technological innovation needed to provide the services. These margins, which set the price for Public Cloud services have been gradually reduced in recent years as technology has matured and proliferated competition but are still far from achieving the standard in dedicated hosting.

MadeIT model is based on a dedicated hosting provider with a service of personalized customer support and quality.

Isolation Between Environments

The level of seclusion and privacy in MadeIT environments is certainly far superior to that offered by Public Cloud providers through the use of private computer nodes, private networks, and private storage volumes.

Flexibility and Scalability

MadeIT solution is designed to be as flexible and functional as a Public Cloud solution. With higher levels of control inherent in an environment with dedicated resources, a private cloud platform can be ideal for enterprises working with multiple different OS and applications involving mission-critical workloads.
