Stay out of the hot seat with turnkey private cloud
In the pursuit of digital transformation, most organizations will use a mix of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and cloud-native platforms (PaaS) deployed across both public and private cloud called multi-cloud strategy. (See the CIO.com blog: “Overcoming the Digital Dilemma” for more details.) A cloud operating model is supposed to reduce friction, i.e., make it easy to deliver the digital systems on which most organizations rely. The problem is that implementing and maintaining a private cloud can be challenging—this introduces friction in the form of delays, costs and risk. As we know from physics, friction results in heat, and in this scenario, IT pros whose projects incur undesirable delays, cost and risk find themselves in an uncomfortable place—the hot seat! Choosing a turnkey private cloud instead of pursuing a do-it-yourself (DIY) cloud implementation reduces the friction in your multi-cloud strategy keeping you out of the hot seat.
