How to automate hybrid Cloud environments Vulnerabilities in hybrid Cloud environments to overcome
Hybrid cloud environments are innovative, but also complex in IT operations. With Automation, the complexity is reduced, and achieve greater Business success. VMware vRealize® Automation overcomes this challenge, from companies and avoiding rising costs, resource-consuming processes and inconsistencies in IT operations.
Advantages of hybrid Cloud solutions
Hybrid Cloud solutions will generate more and more market acceptance. The reasons for this. A hybrid Cloud solution combines the flexibility and the easily available public resources of the Public Cloud with the high security aspect and the individual adaptability of a Private Cloud.
A traditional IT infrastructure is considered, for example, the relocation of complex production workloads can run in the Cloud to a better resource utilization. At the same time, the Workload of the applications from the legacy infrastructure to the new Cloud will be moved to the environment. The advantage of this is that hybrid Cloud solutions can be more flexible and, depending on the needs scale, which has a positive impact on Disaster Recovery, capacity extensions and the management of seasonal demand peaks. By using hybrid Cloud models can be determined Offered the most suitable environment for all applications on the Basis of Performance, cost, data sovereignty and the Cloud Service.
In the case of an already modernized IT, the focus from the infrastructure to the applications and the IT is moved user. Applications can be migrated in the most appropriate surroundings and with the most appropriate technology modernized. New IT service delivery models can introduce to the business needs better support. Ultimately, cloud native and DevOps initiatives are supported by more automation for conventional as well as container-based application architectures of hybrid Cloud solutions.
Challenges in IT operations when switching in a Hybrid Cloud
With these possibilities and technical enhancements, the rich often beyond your data center grows, at the same time, the complexity of the IT infrastructure and requires companies to rethink in terms of IT operations. This change in thinking is particularly necessary, where manual IT management approaches exist and isolated Operations Teams with manual IT tasks and processes to manage one’s own data center. These often have to fight without the use of additional environments (Private Cloud, Public Cloud, and Edge) with the difficulties in the current operation.
This inconsistency in the current operation is the fact that companies are driving innovation faster than ever before to gain a competitive advantage. In the process, they bring new applications and Services in increasingly diverse environments on the market. As soon as the application portfolio will be expanded and applications are deployed in different environments (from the Private Cloud over Public Cloud to the Edge), it belongs to one of the biggest challenges of enterprise application management, as well as critical IT tasks, simplify Workflows, and processes. This is most likely possible, if in all the environments where applications are deployed, a uniform infrastructure and a consistent operation is present.
A consistent operation enables IT, DevOps, and Site Reliability Engineers (SREs), the same Tools, Workflows, configurations, and guidelines for infrastructure and application operations in the datacenter, in the Cloud and use it on Edge. A consistent operation is based on a unified infrastructure on which arises when Computing, network and Storage Layer in two or more environments, Software-Defined and automated service deployments have been programmed.
Solution approach: automation in hybrid Cloud environments
The statement that hybrid Cloud environments will be complex, and is therefore entitled quite. The solution to this lies in the automation, the benefits of hybrid environments to fully take advantage of. Automation helps to simplify IT operations including IT infrastructure management, Workload and application delivery. You are relieved of in many ways, the human IT resources.
With application and infrastructure automation is no longer need to contact the IT Team with the Management of different environments apart. Also, the automation of daily administration, Support and maintenance costs reduce, caused by error-recovery processes. In order for capacities to be free, to ensure a faster, consistent and predictable IT service delivery or the execution of tasks in all environments, the manual process often feasible. Ultimately, IT is productivity everywhere improve, where applications are deployed. Critical applications can be brought to the market, which in turn saves time and money.
Increase agility with Hybrid Cloud automation
VMware offers Hybrid Cloud Management platform VMware vRealize® Suite. With this platform, IT departments can be a Self-Service Private or Hybrid Cloud with automation, Governance and consistent processes provided. The solution includes vRealize® Automation, as well as other Hybrid Cloud management solutions.
