CloudVelox Extends Automation Capabilities to Cloud Network Customization to Accelerate Enterprise Cloud Migration

Grazed from CloudVelox
 

CloudVelox, a pioneer in cloud automation and orchestration software, today announced a new automated cloud network customization capability for its One Hybrid Cloud (OHC) software that is designed for complex data center environments. Cloud network customization enables enterprises to map their existing network environments in a data center to a cloud network design, so that enterprises can accelerate the migration and deployment of workloads without sacrificing workload compatibility or control.

Large data centers and cloud environments have complex network configurations and settings to satisfy regulatory and internal policies. These data centers and environments have various levels of internal as well as external permissions and access. Additionally, for production deployments, enterprise workloads may be configured to operate in specific sub-networks, VLANs and use specific IP address ranges as well as physical IP addresses. To ensure these workloads can run in the cloud seamlessly would require a significant amount of effort, mapping the existing network design into a virtual network environment within the cloud. OHC cloud network customization automates the task of mapping an existing network environment into the cloud network, so that customers can accelerate deployments and maintain control to address regulatory, security and compliance mandates.

Migrating Your Database to the Cloud?

Grazed from CloudExpo. Author: Mike Azevedo.

Companies are migrating infrastructure to the cloud in order to achieve advantages and agility that they need to remain competitive. However, they may have difficulty achieving one extremely important benefit of cloud computing as they attempt to run their MySQL databases in the cloud - scalability in true utility fashion.

Similar to the power utilities we are all familiar with, this entails the ability to get what you need, when you need it and pay for only what you use, even during peak demand. Why switch to the cloud if databases like MySQL limit scalability and performance? It's very simple: the advantages of shedding the headaches of managing one's own machines and reducing operating and capital expenditures are still too great to ignore...
