Building a Bridge to the Cloud

2.0 part represents the ‘outside world’, even though it is focused on a Private Cloud scenario

One of the key focus areas of our Private Cloud 2.0 series is that the 2.0 part represents the ‘outside world’, even though it is focused on a Private Cloud scenario.

This is simply because it is inevitable and one of the valuable features of the Private Cloud approach – At some point you’ll want your Cloud to consume public Cloud resources.

So ‘Building a Bridge to the Cloud’ is a focus on the interconnection technologies that sit in between your Private Cloud and these public services, and encompasses:

  • WAN – Wide Area Network
  • Cloud VPN – Encryption between your office and their data centre
  • Cloud Identity – Federate on-premise and hosted Identity stores

Obviously the users in your office have to connect to the applications, and with them being in a remote site then they will be accessing it over some form of WAN. This brings into focus technologies like IPv6.

Cloud VPN features vendors like our partner Cohesive FT.

In the case of ‘Identity Bridges’ this is a term recently coined by Gartner.

We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
