Why hybrid cloud matters to you

Where are you? Let's make up the balance. You're an enterprise looking to move more of your IT to the cloud or multiple clouds, and you're already somewhere along that path. Perhaps you have already recognized the looming challenges - in terms of orchestration, lack of flexibility and security - and have taken the first steps to do it yourself or to work with a cloud service provider.

Perhaps the most compelling reason to resist the do-it-yourself path is the sheer amount of resources an enterprise needs to build and maintain a data-driven Hybrid Cloud platform of its own.

As we live in an 'always on' world, most organisations operate 24/7. A world that is smarter and more innovative every day and that makes us curious about what else it has in store. Success in the future is no longer about what data you have at your disposal, but about having access to the networks where you can find this data, about how to deal with it and, above all, about what you can do with it. About knowing how to make data work for you and how you can accelerate digital transformation.

Digital transformation requires change in people, processes and technology. Organizations that operate digitally have a number of characteristics: they are able to move quickly and flexibly with demand, they are agile and can quickly adapt new services.

While all industries have their own unique priorities, issues, and challenges, it's easy to say that the growing need for agility, efficiency, and security pervades everything. Therefore, there is a strong business case for data-driven, secure hybrid multicloud technology across a broad spectrum of enterprises, based on size, industry and business model. But whether you're working on the IT or industry side of technology planning, the revelation comes from seeing how your business — and its goals, issues, and challenges — fit into the big picture.

Use cloud to enable digital transformation

About 90% of enterprises now have workloads in the cloud, but on average only 20 to 40 percent of their workloads are in the cloud, most of which are the easier, less complex workloads. The current pandemic has been a wake-up call for many organizations about the importance of system resilience, agility, adaptability and scalability.

The correct use of hybrid cloud technology provides organizations with the basis for digital transformation and is therefore the foundation for the digital transformation. Despite a number of obvious advantages, there are also issues that need to be addressed regarding security, compliance and compatibility with the existing IT landscape. Not to mention the costs versus benefits. Investments must therefore be aimed at realizing more added value and better productivity.

The vast majority of the value that the cloud generates comes from greater agility, innovation and resiliency delivered to the business with continued speed, with it evident that security is paramount.

A wide range of organizations already adopting hybrid multicloud technology have revealed clear patterns in terms of the core business use cases that drive it. Companies try to fulfill the following challenges in random order:

  • How do we accelerate profit growth and digital transformation?
  • How do you make your business more flexible and scalable?
  • How can you serve your company better, faster and more economically?
  • How do you ensure that your business-critical IT is always operational?
  • How do you get into the cloud and how do you get the most benefit from it?
  • How do I avoid the complexity that can come with the cloud?
  • How do you protect your company and your data against current (cyber) threats?

While this list is not exhaustive and mutually exclusive, it provides a contextual framework for analysis of a small cross-section of use cases and criteria related to the open, secure hybrid multicloud.

Hybrid Cloud Platform to accelerate digitale transformation

In order to provide clients a fast track to a open, secure hybrid cloud platform, BPSOLUTIONS has created a standardized Hybrid Cloud Platform which combines on premises and external private cloud with direct connections to the public cloud, It offers virtual machine based, containerized and cloud native functionalities and supports Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems. SAP, SAP HANA, Oracle, SQL, Postgres, MariaDB and many other open source database platforms are natively supported.

The Hybrid Cloud Platform offers pay per use for private cloud (baseline applies) compute, storage, bare metal and virtual servers and full pay per use for public cloud. The platform is open, hybrid and secure from the core and managed in accordance with ISO27001, NEN 7510 and ISO9001. All compute and storage components are fully certified for SAP HANA.

We offer Private Cloud in your (internal or external) datacenters and from our datacenters. From our datacenters we offer low latency direct connects to Azure, AWS, Oracle and IBM Cloud.

All hybrid cloud data protection is end-to-end encrypted and provides native immutability. The append-only filesystem is designed for ransomware immunity. We protect your data wherever I resides; in Azure, AWS, your datacenters or ours with one enterprise, modern data protection service which offers maximum protection and security.

And we manage the complexity.
