Cloudistics & Lenovo: A New Path to a Successful Cloud

 A New Path to a Successful Cloud

Cloudistics has announced a new partnership with Lenovo to deliver the Lenovo ThinkAgile CP Series, a full-fledged Cloudistics experience on Lenovo hardware.

 Instead of the confined old days of datacenter IT, imagine a world where you can, for the first time, discover what a premium experience looks like. With the Lenovo ThinkAgile CP, you can:

VMware and Google Preview a New Plugin Unlocking More Hybrid Cloud Scenarios

Written by David Marshall

VMware and Google have announced a preview of a new Google Cloud Platform (GCP) plugin for VMware vRealize Orchestrator, and support for GCP resources in VMware vRealize Automation.

The vRealize Orchestrator is used to automate other VMware products like the vSphere virtualization platform and the vCloud suite.  This new GCP plugin for vRealize Orchestrator is said to provide customers with a consistent management and governance experience across on-premises and GCP-based IT environments.  As an example, Google and VMware said a user would be able to use Google-provided blueprints (or build their own blueprints for Google Compute Engine resources) and publish them to the vRealize service catalog.  This means a user could select and launch resources in a predictable manner that would be similar to how they would launch VMs in their on-premises VMware environment, using a tool with which they are already familiar.  

Preparing your business for a move to the cloud

In order to secure success for your business, it is essential that you keep your organization moving forward. Instead of resting on your laurels, you should constantly be aiming for more. There are so many ways for you to enhance your operation and it would be a shame for you to allow these opportunities to slip through your fingers. One such opportunity is to move your business onto the cloud. It is a fantastic way for you to save your company time, money, and effort. It is also an excellent way for you to establish yourself as a forward-thinking organization that knows how to use technology to its advantage. Below are seven steps that will help you to achieve your goals.  

Weigh up the pros and cons of cloud computing

As a business owner, you should have total confidence in every move you make. Otherwise, it will be impossible for you to secure the backing of your clients, your employees, and your important investors. Even if you are fairly confident about a new initiative, it is still worth your while to weigh up the pros and cons. This is especially true when it comes to cloud computing. Moving your business onto the cloud is a huge step to take. It will completely transform your operation. That is why you should undertake an extensive research project before you get started.
