For a growing number of enterprises, the journey to cloud computing begins with a private cloud implementation built on premise. A private cloud has the power to transform the way your business delivers and consumes IT services—by creating a layer of abstraction over pooled resources, a private cloud enables true service capability as well as optimally managed application services.
A private cloud solution offers new levels of agility and focus as well as fantastic cost-savings, and whether you build a private cloud in an on-premise datacenter or opt for a hosted offering you’ll soon realise the transformative benefits such a system can bring. GCI has the tools and resources to deliver those kinds of results.
What is a Private Cloud?
A private cloud is a new model for IT delivery. It transforms datacenter resources to enable the key benefits of cloud computing:
- Pooled Resources
In a private cloud, your key hardware resources—compute, storage and networking—are pooled and abstracted into units that enable you to dynamically provision and scale applications and resources, offering total control, exceptional communication and easy access to all necessary data.
This way of operating allows you to deliver applications and resources as services, with your customers being able to request, configure and manage IT services through an interactive portal that allows for automated provisioning.
Resources can quickly be expanded or contracted through automation or workflow. This means IT services can be scaled up or down almost instantly to meet changing business requirements, offering a fully scalable and flexible solution that can work in-line with overall business objectives.
With resources as services, usage can be metered so you and your customers pay for only the resources that are actually consumed to offer a highly cost-effective solution. This way of operating can bring tangible benefits, so let GCI build a private cloud environment and transform the way you deliver IT services to your business.
