Hybrid Cloud Storage: Extending the Storage Infrastructure for Major Cost Savings

Cloud computing has several clear business models. SaaS delivers software, upgrades and maintenance as a service, saving customers money by eliminating costs of ownership that the cloud provider now bears. Several technology factors contribute to SaaS' increasing popularity including protocol standardization, the ubiquity of Web browsing, access to broadband networks, and rapid application development.  It’s not perfect – people have legitimate concerns about data security, governance, vendor lock-in, and data portability, but based on its success, the advantages of SaaS seem to be outweighing its challenges. And the market segment is growing fast.

Another cloud computing model is IaaS, where the customer outsources the compute infrastructure to a cloud provider. This model is gaining traction, especially for application development and testing. App developers are able to take the capital they would otherwise have to spend on buying computing gear and target it to specific development projects that are underway in Internet data centers. The problem with IaaS is that cloud software development doesn’t necessarily translate well into on-premises deployments and many developers prefer to develop SaaS.

Storage in the cloud is yet another business model with different dynamics. While SaaS and Iaas are strongly oriented towards cloud deployments, there are strong pressures driving cloud storage toward on-premises deployments. While storing data in the cloud for SaaS and IaaS computing is certainly important, the vast amount of data still resides on-premises where its growth is largely unchecked. If the cloud storage is going to succeed, it needs to become relevant to the people managing data in corporate on-premises data centers.

5 Ways Storage Is Evolving

With its acquisition of Virsto, VMware certainly understands storage as usual doesn't cut it when it comes to dense, high-powered virtual environments. This technology addresses the so-called "I/O blender" effect that comes from mixing the I/O from many VMs into one stream on its way to external shared storage.

Hybrid Cloud Storage

Hybrid cloud storage orchestrates storage processing between on-premise and cloud resources, creating a single virtual storage infrastructure with centralized management. Software-defined storage (SDS) enables hybrid cloud storage vendors to decouple processing from storage assets.

IT Cloud Management Market Landscape - Executive Summary

In this report, Taneja Group presents an evaluation of the current IT Cloud Management market landscape for enterprise customers. We look at this landscape as an evolution of IT operations management grown up into the cloud era. In addition to increasingly smart and capable operational monitoring and systems management, good cloud management also requires sophisticated capabilities in both automation and orchestration at scale to support end-user provisioning and agility, and detailed financial management services that reveal multi-cloud costs for analysis and chargeback or showback. Our objective is to evaluate cloud management offerings from leading vendors to help senior business and technology leaders decide which vendors offer the best solution. In this study, we evaluated vendors with offerings in one or more of the three fundamental areas. Several well-known vendors (VMware, Microsoft, ServiceNow, HPE, IBM and BMC) have solutions in all three areas. Other vendors focus on only one or two areas, and because it’s possible to compose a broader solution from parts, we’ve evaluated popular niche solutions within each area. All companies were required to have solutions that were generally available as of April 2016. To fairly assess the offerings, we looked at a set of differentiating factors in each of the categories that we believe enterprise customers should use to qualify cloud management solutions. As a final step, to facilitate optimal enterprise selection, we also evaluated the full solution vendors at a higher level where we looked at additional value derived from integrations across areas and other important enterprise vendor engagement factors. Within each of the three areas that we will refer to as Cloud Orchestration, Operations Management, and Financial Management, and at the vendor level for full-suite vendors, we’ve applied categories of factors for scoring as determined by our team of experts, based on customer buying criteria, technical innovation, and market drivers. The overall results of the evaluation revealed that VMware has a strong lead in today’s competitive cloud management landscape.
