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

How does server mirroring work?

Server mirroring is a method of backup that can be used to ensure that if your primary server fails, there will be another server available to fulfill the role of the server that has crashed. Server mirroring solution works by ensuring that the two servers are in constant synchronisation so that the failover server always has a copy of all the data hosted on the primary machine; this means that in the event that the secondary server has to take up the role of the primary server, when the automatic switchover occurs you won’t notice any difference because the most recent copies of all of your data will be accessible. There are a number of different ways in which server mirroring can be implemented; for example, if you are going to be utilising two servers on the same site then technologies such as RSync that will synchronise your data across the local network will meet your requirements, whilst Cross Platform Disaster Recovery solutions will be more beneficial for scenarios where hosting the backup environment elsewhere is necessary. read more
