Let’s face some facts — Cloud computing is growing as more organizations push pieces of their infrastructure into a cloud model. DRBC, load-balancing, bursting, content delivery and even user optimization are all areas where cloud can help. But what happens when technology becomes better? What happens when convergence begins to directly impact the distributed data center model?
You know what they’ve been calling it? “The miniaturization of cloud computing.” New types of platforms are being deployed at remote offices and within data centers which require less infrastructure and more logical controls. The entire data center landscape is being re-evaluated for better performance and improved resource utilization. Already technologies like those from Nutanix are actively trying to redefine the resource utilization standard for cloud.
In this article from DataCenterKnowledge – we look at the key aspects of what’s making your cloud a bithttps://www.mtm.com/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=wcp_carousel smaller. This includes:
- Rethinking the physical infrastructure.
- Incorporating logical controls.
- Software-defined technologies.
- New types of convergence (creating micro-clouds).
- Better data distribution.
It’s important to understand that cloud will continue to expand with software-defined technologies, direct data center optimizations, and a lot more users requesting cloud-based services. Read the full article here to find out why your cloud may be getting a bit smaller!
