The Best Way to Build a Cloud

In most companies, the needs of the business are outpacing what IT can deliver.

Technology is the foundation and enabler of business innovation, the foundation and enabler of business innovation, but developing and implementing new solutions is resource-intensive. Integrating and optimizing islands of IT is complex, time-consuming and costly.

Now, with the advent of cloud-based infrastructure and business process, IT is both a builder and a broker, simultaneously needing to build internal private clouds, consume services from the public cloud, and manage all of these services. Virtually every company is interested in transforming its infrastructure and applications to take advantage of the cloud and a more flexible, efficient IT infrastructure.

In order to boost efficiency in an increasingly shared, converged or cloud environment, the roles and responsibilities of server and storage administrators must be clearly understood and coordinated. Server administrators manage and deploy the server infrastructure and the applications that run on them, whereas storage administrators maintain the overall health of storage and manage the consumption and protection of data. Many solutions fail to take this into account: While both are IT administrators, their roles are different with few opportunities for interaction, and it is often difficult for them to collaborate on a joint task. It is important to pick a private cloud solution that addresses both roles.
