From On-Premise to Datacenter to Cloud: end-to-end network solutions for the cloud.
Today’s cloud landscape is complicated and ever-changing. New technologies become available at a remarkable pace, representing opportunities for greater efficiency and agility. As more and more of the traditional on-premise enterprise IT workload shifts to private/hosted and public cloud infrastructure, connectivity becomes increasingly important.
The enterprise migration to cloud-based IT services has direct implications for underlying network infrastructure. This is driven by three key elements:
Traditional workloads were run on-premise with direct proximity to the users accessing them via the local area network. This meant that latency and network bandwidth were predictable and virtually guaranteed. Moving applications to the cloud means that users are now accessing them via the internet or long distance private connections. Increased latency or decreased available bandwidth can have a direct, negative impact on the performance of the application for the user, which in turn can have an impact to the overall business.
No longer tied to fixed desktops, applications today are accessed from anywhere, anytime. Mobile networks are increasingly tasked with supporting enterprise applications, and users expect the same level of responsiveness they’ve come to expect from their workstation. Applications supporting mobile users require network proximity to mobile carrier networks to ensure the best performance.
The volume of raw data being generated by enterprise workloads has exploded in recent years. Along with this increase in volume, so too has the footprint expanded in the number of disparate systems and services that house it. “Data Dispersion” refers to the shift from the traditional single, central repository of data to today’s dispersed model, where specific data sets live with the services that process them. However, the need for data exchange between services has also grown with the rise of machine learning and big data analytics. Moving large data sets between systems requires consistent, reliable inter-service network connectivity.
Unitas Global has designed a comprehensive Cloud Connectivity solution that includes multiple forms of network services designed to bring performance and reliability to the entire cloud ecosystem. Hybrid cloud is the predominant architecture in today’s world, and requires connectivity both to and between different parts of the overall infrastructure.
