Cloud Platforms: Open Source or Proprietary – Advantages and Disadvantages

Cloud Computing Platform

When it comes about choosing a software for Personal Computer systems, we know we can easily choose between a proprietary software and an open source. The same applies to cloud platforms: which model is best suitable for your business?

In today’s competitive market, cloud platforms like OpenStack, CloudStack and Eucalyptus are open source alternatives to proprietary solutions for commercial businesses.

These models provide many similar benefits that distinguish any open source program: community access, shared resources, rapid updates and freedom to not be tied to the limits of the software owners. But, although a few cloud service providers prefer to create their services on open source platforms, while most opt for the model of proprietary platforms. read more

What is Enterprise Cloud and Its Benefits to Enterprises?

I know that when I ask the question “What is Enterprise Cloud” some people might scoff. A fact that, all the cloud infrastructures and cloud service providers vary in various things and not all the methods can offer the same value as expected by the IT industry. Within the cloud arena, most of the people are aware of only three clouds – Public, Private and Hybrid which are well established. However, a new model known as “Enterprise Cloud” has taken place in the cloud arena.

Enterprise Cloud Hosting is much similar to the Private and Public clouds and offers the same advantages in terms of greater flexibility, instant provisioning of computing power as well as a virtualized and fully scalable environment. The same “private access” is provided by an Enterprise Cloud as you would get in a private cloud. These enterprise clouds are either controlled by an organization or a group of businesses. Similar to other deployment models of cloud, the services in the Enterprise cloud are delivered over the Internet, thus eliminating the need to buy hardware. The commercial grade components usually offer the usability, more features and greater uptime required by an organization. read more

Dedicated Servers Or Cloud Servers – What To Choose?

The large volume of information that you must manage within the corporate structure pushes more and more data managers to turn to professional web hosting solutions. Unfortunately, the clarity of ideas about business requirements (increased bandwidth, flexibility in data management, advanced e-mail and so on) do not always correspond to equal clarity regarding the choice of services to be requested.

Because of the strong marketing action that affected the IT managers in recent years, we often tend to think that cloud computing services are the only answer to all your business issues. Promoted by industry researchers and analysts as the technology of the future, the “cloud” would seem to be just the one chosen by most of the companies. However, this belief does not always lead to success. Very often it happens that by focusing on the willingness to adopt advanced computer facilities, you do not make the correct assessments of the cost / benefit ratio. read more

Benefits of a Well Planned Virtualization with Cloud Computing for Businesses

One of the biggest challenges the IT departments are facing today is to keep up their work environment.

Many of the IT departments are working on their physical limit, logical and economical.
