Welcome to our enterprise cloud computing blog where we'll share our perspectives on cloud computing trends and best practices for the enterprise. We're a team with extensive experience in IT software and systems (learn more about us), and we're passionate about the opportunity that cloud computing offers for fundamentally improving enterprise IT. However, we believe that before the cloud can reach its potential, some innovation needs to take place within the enterprise data center to make cloud computing simple, secure and tightly integrated with existing IT infrastructure. Our mission is to do just that. We tend to see the world from the data center out, unlike much of the innovation around cloud computing to date, which has focused on the cloud as a separate and silo'd environment.
Enterprise Cloud Computing Hurdles
Data Center Integration
Cloud Provider Lock-in
Subscribe to this blog so that you can know when we address these hurdles in more detail. Please share your thoughts on these and other hurdles and how you're thinking about solving them.
* Cloud resources should be secured end-to-end as an extension of the enterprise's security perimeter
* Applications should be able to run in the cloud without modification
* Users should be able to manage applications running in the cloud just as if they were running in the data center, using existing management tools and processes
* The enterprise should be free from cloud lock-in, able to move applications at will whenever it is appropriate, to another cloud or back to the data center.
Our goal for this blog is as a resource to help enterprises better understand and overcome the challenges that stand in the way of simple and secure enterprise cloud computing. We look forward to sharing what we learn from our customers and partners with you.
