1. CREATE A DYNAMIC DATA CENTER. Cloud Computing, through virtualization helps
you break the “one application per server” model.

2. HELP EASE THE POWER CONSUMPTION AND STAY COOL – Although the move from a physical to a cloud environment may be justified solely on the basis of reduced power consumption, the savings don’t stop there.

3. PROVIDE BETTER SECURITY – Cloud Computing allows you to keep sensitive corporate data separate from end-user data.

4. RUN LEGACY SOFTWARE ON NON-LEGACY HARDWARE – A cloud environment can host a virtual machine designed to emulate legacy hardware and allow you to run the necessary operating system and legacy software.

5. DEVELOP AND TEST NEW STUFF EASILY – Application developers can create virtual environments to run multiple operation systems, or even different versions of the same operating system, to test software.

6. RUN MULTIPLE OPERATION SYSTEMS ON THE SAME HARDWARE – Cloud Computing allows you to use multiple operating systems more smoothly.

7. IMPROVE SCALABILITY – You can scale your environment much more dynamically responding to growth in the user base with little reliance on hardware.

8. ENHANCE YOUR HARDWARE UTILIZATION – With Cloud Computing, you’re managing the aggregate demand of your enterprise instead of the demand on any particular physical server/application combination.

9. CREATE A MANAGEABLE UPGRADE PATH – Split up the task of upgrading software or operating systems at a reasonable pace; no more all-nighters.

10. MANAGE OUTAGES (EXPECTED AND UNEXPECTED) DYNAMICALLY – For scheduled outages, a virtualized environment lets you shift resources to cover where the outage will occur.  Plus, should a VM fail for any reason, a new instance of a VM can be started at a remote location almost immediately.

  • The Datotel Risk Assessment Methodology:

    Risk assessments come in many forms, but the underlying purpose is to identify and document known risks to a given process or system and identify the consequences if that risk were to occur. With the risks both identified and quantified, … Continue reading
