Early concerns over the cloud’s security and privacy are proving no match for its efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and elasticity. And hybrid cloud infrastructure, which blends the cloud’s benefits with the security organizations desire, is taking hold.
In fact, a recent study commissioned by Microsoft and conducted by 451 Research indicates that 68 percent of businesses plan to adopt hybrid cloud models over the next two years.
Customers concerned about the security of sensitive or proprietary data can take comfort in the hybrid cloud’s use of in-house servers while capitalizing on the scalability and cost savings of a public cloud infrastructure.
Now one of the early adopters of hybrid cloud and, in fact, SHI’s first hybrid cloud customer, Gila, is speaking out about its IT goals and challenges, the solutions it implemented, and the benefits it has achieved by deploying a hybrid cloud strategy. Continue Reading…
It’s that time of year again. VMworld 2012 kicked off today in San Francisco, and the SHI team is busy making last minute preparations to our booth and breakout sessions on Workspace-as-a-Service, Mission-Critical Applications in the Cloud, and the Expectation Gap.
It was just a year ago that we unveiled our high-performance, industrial-grade SHI Cloud, but our dedication to developing innovative cloud solutions didn’t end then.
This year at VMworld, we’ll be showcasing our unique and HP-certified Managed Private Cloud (MPC). Managed Private Cloud is an on-premise, appliance-based solution that keeps the cloud onsite, in YOUR data center, behind YOUR firewall. All the while, SHI’s cloud technicians remotely monitor and support it from the security of SHI’s cloud data center. Because your data never leaves your premises, MPC is a valuable solution for state, local, and federal government entities, as well as academic and financial institutions that are governed by strict security and privacy regulations.
Our Managed Private Cloud YouTube video embedded below gives a good overview of what the solution is and how it works.
