Cloud has become a crucial foundation for digital transformation (DX) initiatives and is shaping the IT strategy of enterprises today. Companies are extending their IT infrastructure into the cloud for running business-critical applications, developing new applications, and delivering new cloud-based services. Applications are the lifeblood of modern enterprises. They are the foundation on which businesses maintain their existing revenue streams while examining ways to create new ones. A sound application strategy is a must for frms to be successful in expanding their competitive differentiation in the digital economy. Operating systems (OSs) provide a common foundational layer that enables IT to run current and new generations of applications in traditional IT environments, on its own private cloud, and in public clouds and utilize a variety of computing options such
as bare metal, virtualization, and containerization. The increased reliance of IT on the cloud has accelerated the
Cloud computing no longer is simply the most dominant topic of conversation among the IT community and its business stakeholders: It is now a gigantic marketplace that is reshaping how IT services are provided and, more important, is helping organizations become more agile, responsive and efficient.
With the viability and importance of cloud computing now widely accepted by IT and business leaders alike, the focus of planning, discussion and implementation has shifted to the best approaches for using cloud computing to achieve the all important business goals of agility, flexibility and efficiency. From an architectural standpoint, most organizations have embraced some combination of public and private clouds — sometimes in isolation, other times in concert. But increasingly, large and small organizations alike are taking steps toward the next wave of cloud architecture: hybrid clouds.
"It is very well understood that Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements and remain competitive many companies are turning to cloud computing. Companies thus need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds.
Oracle understand the need for IT organizations to move to cloud computing at the same time also recognizes that moving to the cloud is a multi-step journey that starts with standardization and consolidation of IT infrastructure and ends by moving applications and data to the cloud.
The PDF is meant to help you gauge through the Oracle’s SPARC servers and give you an experience of simplified journey to the cloud by using the same technology for both cloud and on-premises deployments. No matter where your IT organization is on the journey to the cloud SPARC servers will be an i
Private cloud computing can better align IT with business concerns by making IT efficient, responsive, and cost-effective. Learn how to start your private cloud with automation and orchestration to gain operational efficiency and financial benefits.
This EMA White Paper examines in more detail the building blocks for private cloud computing - automation, virtualization, and cloud service management - and provides EMA's recommendations for a phased approach to cloud computing, based on EMA's maturity model, research data, and enterprise activities, with prescriptive approach and some sample use cases to help get started.
