Moving to the cloud is becoming a must for many companies if they want to grow beyond their current footprint and be more innovative. But for many companies—especially those in the SMB space—their transition to the cloud is hindered by a lack of knowledge and experience, which often results in difficult migrations that sometimes just aren’t successful. Since its inception, nClouds has helped organizations of all sizes move to the cloud successfully. Its experience as an AWS Premier consulting partner and its well-architected approach to cloud migration helps companies get the most from their infrastructure by engaging with the cloud, whether they’re adopting a hybrid environment or going all in on cloud.In this DevOps Chat, JT Giri, nClouds founder and CEO, and I speak about the triggers that push companies to adopt cloud, some issues companies face in their decision-making and infrastructure’s role in an increasingly cloud-based IT world.

Will VMware's New License Fees Trigger Rush to the Cloud?

Article | February 20, 2020

With chip makers packing more processing power into CPUs, a leading maker of virtualization software is overhauling its prices significantly to reflect the development. Will VMware’s new fees push enterprise users into the cloud? It’s a reckoning that IT executives will be forced to consider come April. That’s when the company’s new fee structure kicks in for hypervisor products that run multiple operating systems on a single piece of silicon. Some multinationals could face significant price increases under the new structure. The Dell EMC subsidiary changed license fees for its Vsphere hypervisor kit. Instead of charging per CPU socket for motherboard connections, it will now base its fee on the number of cores in the CPU.

Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Remote/Branch Offices & Edge Computing

Article | February 10, 2020

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is playing a significant role in building an enterprise multi-cloud environment. The benefits are well documented – you can learn more about them in a new white paper developed in collaboration with ViON, Fujitsu, and Nutanix, “Simplifying Multi-Cloud and Securing Mission Progress.” In addition to driving a cloud foundation, hyperconverged infrastructure is driving other use cases. In our first blog, we examined the impact that HCI can have in a disaster recovery solution. In this installment, we’ll discuss how HCI is changing the dynamics for remote offices and edge computing.

Successful Cloud Migrations Made Easy

Article | March 16, 2020

TransAlta, an energy producer with gas, hydro, solar, wind, and coal facilities across the U.S., Canada, and Australia, leveraged data virtualization with the company’s cloud strategy. A few years ago, TransAlta decided to move 100% of its data to the cloud. The company centralized its data to reduce infrastructure, simplify data access, and scale storage. The biggest hidden challenge many companies face when trying to be completely cloud based is connecting the applications they accumulate over time. Whether they were developed and configured for on-premises environments, have specific security requirements, or are too old and complex to connect to data in the cloud, this presents a challenge.

Virtualization can transform your company’s IT infrastructure

Article | February 18, 2020

For many companies in today’s highly competitive, rapidly digitizing world, data center transformation is not merely a one-time project – it’s a constant challenge. No corporate IT leader should be content merely to revamp their data infrastructure once, then call it a day. Instead, they should always be looking for ways to make their approach to data more dynamic and easier to scale. Ideally, they’d do so in a way that maximizes resource utilization while minimizing costs. Luckily, that’s exactly the idea behind virtualization, which involves creating a new infrastructure that’s capable of rapidly scaling and facilitating workload development. IT leaders are quickly coming to realize that with virtualization in their toolbox, they’re able to make their operations more agile than ever, and without increasing costs. This is why over 80% of enterprise server workloads today are running on virtual machines, and the market for data center virtualization is expected to reach a total value of $10 billion by 2023.
