Pulsant is a United Kingdom-based IT infrastructure services
provider focused on the small and medium-sized enterprise
market. It offers public, private, and hybrid cloud services and a
variety of managed, collocation, and professional services.
Pulsant was one of the first cloud service providers to embrace
software-defined networking (SDN) as a way to simplify its IT
infrastructure, unify control of physical and virtual environments,
and reduce capital expenses (capex) and operating expenses
(opex). After evaluating a number of vendors, Pulsant chose
Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) as the best SDN
solution for delivering its hybrid cloud services.
When it comes to placing your missioncritical
systems and applications in the
cloud, do you know what’s behind the
scenes? Do you know if your data is secure?

This edition of Unleashing IT highlights the
best of the best: The strategies and Cisco
Powered services providers that deliver on
the promise of enterprise-class clouds.
Cloud adoption is growing, but relatively few organizations
have advanced cloud strategies.
Achieving greater levels of cloud adoption allows organizations
to materially improve strategic allocation of IT budgets, lower IT costs, reduce time to provision IT services, increase revenue, and improve ability to meet SLAs. Private cloud adoption is greater than public cloud.
Additionally, private cloud/OpenStack adopters are more likely to expect better business outcomes IDC sees web-scale public cloud making way for enterprise-class “provider-based cloud”.
In this infograph learn the benefits regarding cloud services and whether it is more cost effective to build an IT Infrastructure for cloud on-site or to partner with a cloud provider that offers a fully managed solution.
Data Intensity is an enterprise cloud services provider focusing on Oracle applications. Founded in 2001, it currently has 240 employees and operates two data centers with about 1,200 virtual servers. They needed a flexible storage platform to handle growth of individual customer applications, such as Oracle ERP, with minimal downtime with low operating costs. Testing included storage systems from five different vendors to find a solution that was easy to administer and provides thin provisioning, snapshots, and rapid provisioning.

The less you hear about your building’s network, the better.
Enterprise networks rarely make the news unless the news is bad—and an unplanned outage is about as bad as it gets. In 2017, a tech’s typo at one of the world’s largest cloud services providers took a large swath of servers offline for four agonizing hours. According to one estimate, it cost S&P 500 companies $150 million—and U.S. financial-service companies $160 million—in lost revenue.
Of course, the financial hit is just one aspect of an outage. The true cost also includes lost productivity and damage to your reputation. As our reliance on ITC infrastructure increases, the cost of an unplanned outage will only go up.
