Business Transformation = Data Centre Transformation + Workplace Transformation

Architecture, Cloud, Locuz - SOI & SOM, Transformation, Trends No Comments »

Neither are the Data Centre’s or Workplaces same anymore. Businesses have an opportunity to stay ahead in the transition curve by taking advantage and clasping transformation. The two technology areas will enable Business Transformation and among many reasons one single compelling reason I would consider is AGILITY.

Workplace Transformation

Data Centre Transformation

Evolutionary Fabric. Revolutionary Scale.

Quite catchy - Cisco way to Unified Fabric Architecture…

Its promise was to deliver flexibility across Physical, Virtual and Cloud environments for any application – now promises enhancements for new age massively scalable Data Centres to deal with Big Data/Hadoop environments and bare-metal deployments. These data centres have massive blade density and demand flexible workload mobility (VM’s freely moved) not compromising on plug-and-play capability plus throughput on network and storage transport.

Unified Fabric will virtualize data centre resources and connect them through a high bandwidth network that is very scalable, with high performance and enables convergence of multiple protocols onto a single physical network.

@Locuz we have managed to exploit this further by being able to bring automation to the application layer. Our HPC and High Performance Storage capabilities are coming handy as Business computing has been echoing the same needs that we kept executing for long enough now.

Want to build the next generation Data Centre, review our reference architecture and do not hesitate to write to preetam.oswal@locuz.com

Anywhere any device

Cloud, Customers, Just the facts, Trends No Comments »

The rapidly growing use of Tablets by Enterprise users is making it imperative they get anywhere any device access to all applications. Anytime is implicit.

Many Businesses are unprepared with such sudden rise in on-demand access by unconventional devices.

Access to Business applications had been in some form tied down to desktops/laptop hardware and operating system on them.

Application access and user side applications need to be decoupled from hardware of users and be centrally hosted. For example the desktop is Virtual and is provisioned to user from the (Private) Cloud. Equally well for tablets.

Virtualization will help in desktops being delivered consistently across users (tablet and desktop) and will make access far more secure than the traditional desktop methods. The transformation may have to be accelerated for many Enterprise deployments without disruption and uncompromised experience with settings or device itself.

The technology itself has quite evolved with examples like Cisco CIUS, a Enterprise Tablet and RIM Blackberry having a Citrix Receiver for Playbook Tablet.

Our approach is an accelerator. We are helping customers go thru such transformation in a manner that is not only smooth but extremely effective.

Cheers!

Private Cloud Infra

Cloud, Customers, Just the facts, Locuz way - SIM/CMDB/IDM, News, Trends No Comments »

We are an authority in building Private Cloud Infra. Something that I have been longing to write for a while but wanted to be sure if we were not missing anything. With a tested methodology and deep expertise across parts of a service ready stack, in place, we can help customers transition their Core Technology Infrastructure to Cloud Infra.

Our offering is independent of any Virtualization or Storage or Interconnect technology. We can assist customers chose an appropriate stack that will provide full scale Automation and Orchestration. Resource provisioning thru our self service portal is not only an assured cost effective outcome but dramatically easier – all within a policy framework.

Cloud Reference Architecture (Locuz Proprietary)

Our Integration capabilities offer the flexibility of using your Private Cloud like any SMT service and add capabilities like charge back.

Over next few posts I wish to elaborate our capabilities and experiences in customer environments.

Cheers! Uttam

Cloud Predictions

Cloud, Just the facts, Trends No Comments »

This Morning I decided will blog about 8 points that to my mind seem some kind of predictions and just then saw a Google Alert message that had 14 predictions from Chirag Mehta and Wang. They said more than what I was sure and could not have agreed more – then just copeid them over here…

1.Most new procurement will be replaced with cloud strategies

2.Private clouds will serve as a stepping stone to public clouds

3.Cloud customers will stop saying “the cloud is not secured” and start asking hard questions about how the cloud can be secured

4.Public cloud adoption will be temporarily reduced by concerns about cybersecurity. Private clouds will be kept for security and backups.

5.A transition from best-of-breed purpose-built applications to “cloud mega stacks” will occur.

6.App stores will be the predominate channel for application deployment

7.User experience and scale will no longer be mutually exclusive

8.Custom application development will shift to the cloud

9.Development-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service will merge

10.Integration vendors will be expected to offer integration beyond data

11.Consumer tech features such as social business platforms, mobile enterprise capabilities, predictive analytical models and unified communications will continue to proliferate in the enterprise

12.Customers will demand better virtualization

13.The overall technology landscape will simplify thanks to the cloud

14.Archiving and data management will be core competencies for cloud users

Only when something compeling is said, will I be prompted into copying. Credits to the orginal authors…

Cloud – Moving beyond hype

Not one CIO or CTO is avoiding the thought of cloud adoption – plain truth. There could be some who do not have a Business-IT posture Read the rest of this entry »
