Cloud Computing White Papers

Cloud computing refers to the use of Internet ("cloud") based computer technology for a variety of services. It is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualisedresources are provided as a service over the Internet. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them.

Everyone should be able to communicate from any device - especially in an emergency situation. The Cisco IP Interoperability and Collaboration Solution (IPICS) brings this capability to ANY organization without anyone having to purchase new or unique devices. In this clip we build a fully functional network on set to see exactly how this works, even using an iPad to communicate to a hand held radio.

Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Gain an Edge by Taking Analytics to the Edge!

Enterprises are rapidly adopting cloud computing solutions in order to meet dynamically changing business requirements. These solutions are typically comprised of both private and public cloud deployments, resulting in the creation of hybrid clouds that are designed to rapidly scale up and down in response to user demands, and they provide the advantages of elastic computing economics. In order to benefit from this environment, businesses need to connect with these hybrid clouds more easily from their heterogeneous bases, and balance the need for compliance and control against the need to rapidly innovate and the ability to scale as required. This presents a complex integration challenge for IT organizations. As a result, they increasingly find themselves brokering cloud services as opposed to creating an all-private cloud environment.

Enterprises look to private clouds for more than just virtual infrastructure provisioning. Private cloud vendors have started to bundle additional capabilities into their solutions, including pervasive VM management capabilities, design tools for complex application templates, and service catalogs. Over the next 12 months, more than half of enterprises will prioritize building internal private clouds. Today, the most common approach is through the purchase of commercial software to layer atop existing infrastructure resources. Regardless of the approach you choose, there’s no shortage of tools to support your efforts.

The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology. This transformation of IT involves many different aspects, not all of which are technology-related, but the one thing they all share is that IT modernization is about making changes to meet the current and future demands of business. This report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective, with the findings delivered as the Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM). It considers the significance of management in the virtualization and cloud environments and how this influences the way in which technology is deployed, used, and controlled.

Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. At the time this definition was published, “cloud” was already part of industry parlance, and was beginning to take root in the general lexicon. Additionally, global business spending for infrastructure and services related to the cloud had topped $78 billion. This year, enterprise spending on the cloud will reach an estimated $174 billion, and is expected to climb to $235 billion by 2017.2 Inevitably, as both business IT and consumer mindsets evolve toward the cloud in coming years, we will continue to witness dramatic growth in IT products in some areas, and significant reductions in other areas—resulting in a reshaping of the industry as a whole.

If your company is using cloud computing services today, it’s highly likely you are already in a hybrid cloud configuration. The key question is whether you are actively managing this reality. In January 2014, HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise hybrid cloud environments and how they are being managed. Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that enterprise IT operations teams struggle to recognize and manage this hybrid state — a hypothesis that was proven out.
