Around the globe, IT teams are being asked by their end users to match the agility of the public cloud. The ease by which public cloud resources are consumed has set the new standard that internal IT teams are now being held to. Meeting those expectations can be difficult to deliver with internal resources that were not designed to deliver that type of service.
The public cloud has provided an example of supporting changing requirements with ease, with immediate responsiveness to change requests and performance modifications. With a private cloud, end users experience the same ease of use offered in consuming resources from the public cloud, but from an internal platform. An effective private cloud will be able to deliver predictable performance and the ability to modify the performance on demand. Based on the diverse and changing growth patterns of multiple applications, the IT team needs the private cloud platform to scale with a great deal of agility.
To deliver these expectations to an end user, an IT team may need to consider building the private cloud from a new platform that can scale with ease, deliver predictable performance to each workload, and take advantage of advanced automation to eliminate manual tasks.
