The Benefits of Managed Cloud Services

High-functioning IT infrastructures are built on a customized plan of cloud and on-premise applications – a formula that’s unique to every business. A managed cloud service provider will ensure your IT plan is using the cloud efficiently while minimizing threats as your business grows.

For most businesses, managed cloud service providers offer many clear benefits, including:

  • Reduced storage and server costs with custom-designed hybrid, public, and private cloud solutions
  • A centralized network for all of your applications and servers
  • Improved backup and disaster recovery procedures
  • Better preventative security and data protection capabilities
  • Enhanced compliance management
  • Greater mobility – access your data from anywhere at any time
  • Fast response times and proactive maintenance
Boost Productivity with an Integrated Hybrid Cloud

Applications continue to grow and change as customer expectations evolve.

By the end of 2020, Gartner analysts predict that 90 percent of organizations will adopt a hybrid infrastructure to manage all of their tools effectively. Companies are rushing to transform, adopt cloud and leverage AI capabilities to remain relevant. They need to innovate faster and personalize customer experiences – and the key is unlocking the hidden power of data and services.

For organizations with mission-critical applications deployed from local on-premise servers, Gego Cloud offers integrated strategies that combine the best of both cloud worlds and greater security. You can continue running applications in the cloud when demand peaks, but simultaneously store your data securely on-premises.

If you’re worried about integrating your on-premises apps with newer cloud technologies, you’re not alone. We can help you adapt. Technology never stops evolving – and the way in which you interact with apps shouldn’t, either.
Spend Less Time Managing Your Infrastructure

Understanding just how much you’re going to spend can be far more complicated than you might expect.

Many hidden costs are associated with moving to the cloud. The most common hidden costs are caused by rogue cloud use, loose governance, complex backup and recovery solutions, inefficient storage, duplicate data, compliance issues and data in transit issues.

Another challenge for executives is understanding which services should go in the cloud based on their risk tolerance. That’s where we can help – Gego Cloud will assist in identifying your acceptable risk tolerance, then balance the expense of a cloud solution vs. an on-premise option.

You may not need to splurge on a fully redundant, self-healing data center. You need cloud services that bring you to a healthy level of risk tolerance – for a fair price.

What Is a Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure?
A hybrid cloud infrastructure is a cloud computing architecture that combines public cloud services, private cloud or third-party services, and on-premises services. The resulting IT environment provides a greater degree of flexibility to businesses because of their ability to switch between public and private clouds. That switching back and forth is determined in part by the computing needs of the business at any given moment and in part by cost-effectiveness.

In the hybrid cloud environment, data and applications are shared across the public and private cloud. Typically, businesses taking advantage of hybrid cloud computer start on a private cloud, flowing seamlessly to the public cloud when their work overflows the private cloud¡¯s ability to handle it. This way, companies can use the public cloud¡¯s computing power when needed, which still keeping their private data protected by an on-premises firewall.

What Are Examples of a Hybrid Cloud?
Certain industries tend to gravitate toward the hybrid cloud because of the massive space requirements of their computing. Among these are finance, health care, law, and retail.

The noted motorcycle firm Ducati also recently switched to a hybrid cloud infrastructure to provide greater computing speed to its engineering and design departments. The switch to the hybrid cloud allowed Ducati to take advantage of a modernized data center without having to sink costs into on-premises infrastructure. The Ducati shift to the hybrid cloud allowed the firm to consolidate its data center, implement new disaster recovery protocols, and expand its research capabilities.

How Does a Hybrid Cloud Work?
There¡¯s no single defined structure for hybrid cloud architecture, which can combine public cloud services with private cloud infrastructure in a variety of ways. All hybrid clouds, though, share some elements in common.

When a business chooses the hybrid cloud, it shares its data across both the public and private cloud infrastructure. The IT needed to keep all this data in sync can be quite complex, requiring hybrid cloud management tools that work between the various cloud infrastructures via either private networks or the internet.

What Is the Difference Between a Hybrid Cloud and Multicloud?
Technically, every hybrid cloud is a type of multicloud. However, the word ¡°multicloud¡± is used to refer to the use of multiple public cloud environments to provide services. This contrasts with hybrid clouds, which always involve some combination of public and private clouds. Businesses often opt for multicloud use to avoid being tied to a single cloud service provider. In particular, those industries that deal with sensitive data, including the health care and finance industries, are likely to opt for a multicloud solution rather than relying on any single public cloud, for security reasons.

Where hybrid clouds allow the different components to work together seamlessly, multiclouds silo data in separate clouds. This siloing allows a far greater emphasis on data security, since the greatest risk to data privacy and security occurs during the transfer of data between clouds. Business that have no specific need to share apps or data across clouds often find the multicloud solution to be the right one for their needs. In fact, Gartner has predicted a 70% adoption of a multicloud strategy by U.S. businesses.

What Is the Difference Between a Hybrid Cloud and a Private Cloud?
The hybrid cloud makes use of private clouds ¡ª so it¡¯s important to know the difference between them. A private cloud refers to the cloud services that are proprietary to a single organization. Only that business has access to the private cloud, which is protected by a firewall and other security measures to ensure the desired privacy.

The major differences between the private and hybrid clouds are as follows:

• The private cloud typically relies on servers on the company¡¯s premises; the hybrid cloud pairs these private servers with servers from the public cloud.

• Any organization with a private cloud must manage both the infrastructure and the services itself; with a hybrid cloud, the cloud services provider handles the public cloud side of services and infrastructure.

• No one can use private cloud services but the organization that owns the private cloud; with a hybrid cloud, anyone using the public cloud can use the services available there.

• The private cloud stores only the data of the organization involved; the data stored in the hybrid cloud exists in an environment shared with other tenants of the cloud.

Why Is the Hybrid Cloud Important?
The hybrid cloud is important because of the IT flexibility it provides to organizations, combined with the significant cost savings over the private cloud (which, of course, provides even greater flexibility but at a far higher cost).

With a hybrid cloud, an organization can enjoy the security, management, and integration of the public cloud, but with the added privacy and control of the private cloud where needed. The hybrid cloud thus becomes an extension of in-house data centers and services, but with a more affordable pay-per-use cost structure.

In addition, the hybrid cloud lets your IT team handle all your cloud services through a single portal. When your tech professional aren¡¯t dealing with the inefficiency of cloud sprawl, they can focus their talents and time on the operations that matter most to your organization. They¡¯re also able to respond more quickly and flexibly to augment your business¡¯s tech needs when growth or new projects demand it.

Why Is the Hybrid Cloud an Attractive Solution?
The hybrid cloud is attractive to many businesses for several reasons:

• The hybrid cloud is highly versatile. The use of the hybrid cloud provides organizations with the opportunity to scale up to the public cloud to meet immediate IT demands while still retaining control of security and systems behind a private cloud firewall.

• The hybrid cloud allows control at a level not available with the public cloud. Because organizations can customize their private cloud portion of the hybrid cloud, they aren¡¯t subject to the whims and capabilities of the public cloud. Your internal IT team can control critical operations and protect vital data without worrying about changes in the terms and conditions of your cloud services provider.

• The hybrid cloud helps you control costs. While using a hybrid cloud is generally more expensive than relying solely on the public cloud, it comes with significantly lower costs than implementation of a purely private cloud. It also helps you avoid the high costs often associated with data migration between public cloud providers, since you can retain your most vital data and applications within the private cloud.

• The hybrid cloud lets highly regulated industries satisfy government regulation.

• The hybrid cloud facilitates delivery of content globally. For the best customer experience, content is best delivered from locations nearest to the end user. The use of the public cloud enables that, letting organizations keep their customers and mobile employees happy while still enjoying the privacy and security of the private cloud.

What Is the Real Cost of the Hybrid Cloud?
While the hybrid cloud may be cost-effective for some companies, especially those with ample legacy private cloud infrastructure in place, it comes with hidden and unexpected costs. Making a smart decision about the use of the hybrid cloud depends on calculating its true cost by taking into consideration the following factors:

1. The costs of customization. Migrating applications from the private to the public cloud typically comes with customization requirements to allow that application to work with the hybrid cloud.

2. The costs of support personnel. Some companies may save money if their IT operations require fewer personnel due to use of the hybrid cloud.

3. The costs of data center infrastructure. Companies with existing private cloud infrastructure should crunch numbers carefully to determine whether moving to the hybrid cloud will reduce data center costs.

4. Data transfer costs. Every transfer of data from on-premises servers to the public cloud involves some costs. These can add up fast if you¡¯re transferring a large amount of data or if your cloud services provider charges networking fees to move data around within the public cloud.

5. Storage costs. If you choose to store data on the public cloud rather than on your own servers, you should count the costs ahead of time. This is especially important if you expect to ramp up your need for storage in the future.

The hybrid cloud is one of several choices you have when setting up your company¡¯s IT infrastructure. Understanding the true costs and the best uses of the hybrid cloud, as well as the benefits of the multicloud, can help your organization make smart decisions when it comes to designing your IT architecture.
