Why is your private cloud beginning to fail?
According to research firm Gartner, 95% of private cloud users believe that “something is wrong” with their platform, but what?
Companies are likely to give in to the sirens of the Private Cloud. Agility, ease of deployment and administration are indeed all assets that call for these infrastructures, but the creation and use of such a platform is calling for technical expertise and organizational changes. Neglect one or the other of these aspects and your project may not provide the expected benefits. IT managers surveyed by Gartner have experienced these facts. Here are the reasons for which your private cloud might fail.
Why your private Cloud might fail?
- All is well – 5%
- Inability to transform operational processes – 31%
- Project too limited – 19%
- Billing Problem – 13%
- Very ambitious project – 11%
- Despised on profits expected – 10%
- Wrong Choice of technology – 6%
- Other – 5%
Inability to transform operational processes – 31%
1) The creation of a private cloud has an impact on the whole organization. But if company’s approach towards its project is limited to only resolving IT services’ technical problems then chances to get success starts reducing.
2) An agile infrastructure reclaims processes, but the delivered source instruction (in-short DSI) must be transformed into service center and translate trades technological needs to answers.
Project too limited – 19%
1) The private cloud sometimes stops at the virtualization step. The teams do not exploit the full potential of cloud and automation for fear of disappearing part of their mission.
2) The implementation of a private cloud frees IT teams from some repetitive tasks and rewarding little spots. It is therefore the occasion for them to undertake new more advanced projects.
Very ambitious project – 11%
1) Conversely, while optimizing returns has not optimized anything, then attempt to migrate all workloads to the cloud usually denies. And DSI (delivered source instruction) may complicate the project and lose all agility entry.
Billing Problem – 13%
1) Expertise divisions can freely provision resources and applications they need to work. But these methods have a cost to the IT.
2) When resources are proposed as self-service, it is important to set upstream of the chargeback rules for each service that consumes.
Despised on profits expected – 10%
1) The cloud SI optimizes operating costs. It is however important to know that things won’t be reversed immediately, seeking to make savings on infrastructure.
2) These are the gains in agility and productivity that will give the greatest profits by offering trades services they need to advance the business.
Wrong Choice of technology – 6%
1) Behind the cloud hides a complex infrastructure combining both physical infrastructure and software solutions. Before moving to Cloud-as-a-service, the selection of these technologies is a crucial step for the future of the project.
2) Interoperability, flexibility and security. The criteria for selection of a private cloud platform are numerous and importantly require expertise. Choosing a good technology often begins with choosing the right partner capable of accompanying the company from beginning to end of the project.
