Moving valuable data and workload to the cloud requires careful thought and consideration to ensure that the data gets the durability and availability that best fits the use case. There is no magic cloud button to ensure 100% durability and availability — not even in the most expensive solutions. But have no fear, there is hope.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is a service model that provides DR capabilities via the use of a third-party cloud environment, whereby all the disaster recovery functionality, including orchestration, are provided as-a-service. Since DRaaS does not require a dedicated, physical secondary data center, nor trained IT staff, it’s generally available at a lower cost than do-it-yourself solutions.

Each year, we talk to thousands of customers about their public cloud deployments in all of the major hyperscalers. Consistently, the health of customer cloud ecosystems is marginal because of a few key focus areas: workload & cost optimization, security posture, and monitoring. We hope that this blog post, based on our findings and observations, will serve you well.

Running workloads in the cloud provides a number of advantages to businesses. Because the business does not own the hardware the workloads are operating on, they can be treated differently than workloads running in a data center. No longer do businesses have to worry about capital infrastructure costs; cloud costs are typically operational and can be adjusted as needed. With cloud services, cost optimization should be done on a periodic basis to keep costs down.

Many technology users are aware of the concept of serverless computing, but not sure of the advantages it has over other software implementations, or how easy it is to develop a solution that fits into their business practices.

In the ebb and flow of technology, convergence has gone through many stages. Where mainframes consolidated workloads, commodity servers allowed workloads to be broken out and configured for specific use cases. Then, virtualization allowed for servers to remain individually unique, while still sharing consolidated hardware. But this required merging hardware from multiple vendors into a single solution.

"Collaboration tools are a cost of doing business." This statement was made to me by the CFO of a 3-billion-dollar organization. When I asked about ROI (return on investment) or IRR (internal rate of return) as a justification for the tools, he was ambivalent because he trusted the executive team making the expenditure to do the required due diligence.

What does Collaboration mean for technology today? Nothing, but what does technology mean for Collaboration, now that is the question. It seems like every day we hear that we have more choices than ever before to communicate, but somewhere along the way we gave up on the dream of Unified Communications, and just moved on to Collaboration. But what does that mean, really?

What are the primary motivations for moving to the cloud? For many businesses, it boils down to simplicity. They want to reduce the complexity of their current network and data center and capitalize on the flexibility and efficiency the cloud offers. IT departments want to shift their focus from the day-to-day demands of managing technology and concentrate on delivering the innovation that technology makes possible.

Many businesses want to take advantage of cloud economics and flexibility, but they have concerns about the security of workloads that move between the controlled environment of an on-premises network and the cloud. The good news is that VMware NSX can help a business address these concerns and give it the flexibility to move workloads to a cloud environment and back without compromising security or creating more complexity for IT.

Something interesting is going on in enterprise data centers. Companies are finding that nothing they do within the glass walls yields a competitive advantage. Application strategy, business process optimization, industry innovation — the way IT supports those initiatives can help a company stand out in a crowded and competitive market. But the way a company runs cable doesn’t.

Digital transformation is happening. Over the next five years, private sector revenues that are digital are expected to increase from 16% to 37%, according to Gartner’s 2016 CIO Agenda. A comparable trend is found in the public sector, where Gartner projects that digital processes will go from 42% to 77%. Enterprises large and small are looking to leverage digitization to make their business more flexible, agile, faster, and better integrated with their customers. They want to leverage digitization to collaborate better among themselves and with their clients—driving a better experience for all.

Every industry vertical is seeing the impact of digital transformation, with early adopters reaping the greatest business benefit. The Internet of Things (IoT) is making a new era of connected vehicles possible. I’d like to share two stories of connected transportation that demonstrate digital transformation in action.

The most valuable asset to any business is its data. According to Forbes, in 2016 ransomware attacks grew at a blistering pace to 638 million, more than 167 times the number of attacks in 2015. Around 50% of these attacks targeted the US. And we can only expect the trend to continue. On the front lines, Presidio customers have called us in to help recover data after ransomware attacks and avoid bitcoin payments, and to counter attacks on their networks and endpoints. Because of these types of cyber threats, the FBI has urged CEOs to take measures such as implementing security incident response and business continuity plans.
