Organizations that are looking to transform their on-premises data center infrastructure into a highly automated private cloud have often struggled with how to deliver a true self-service consumption and delivery model that provides the fine-grained and centralized governance and control required.
Your organization may already be using one or more public clouds for portions of your business, and through this experience, you’ve realized the benefits of cloud infrastructure and operations. You also recognize that while public cloud has its place in application development and other digital initiatives, it’s not a fit for everything. Due to compliance, integration, and cost, certain applications and workloads may need to reside in your on-premises data center, but it’s important to utilize a cloud operating model for a speed, agility, and a consistent self-service experience for service and infrastructure delivery.
Increasingly, users and developers expect a public cloud-like modern and agile self-service experience from their IT organizations. But, without modern infrastructure automation and management tools, building, maintaining and delivering a consistent private cloud can be challenging, costly to maintain, and complex to operate, not to mention keeping up with the latest and modern cloud technologies. What do you do?
