Choosing the right path: how to establish a best practice journey to hybrid/multicloud adoption
Cloud has undoubtedly transformed the way that we consume IT.
Hybrid strategies have proved popular to date as organisations look to maintain a mix of cloud services and on-premise IT. However, the last couple of years have seen the rise of the next iteration of cloud consumption: multi-cloud.
Cloud has been a game-changer when it comes to how technology is consumed. More than nine out of 10 organisations today use cloud-based services in some way. This is because cloud delivers agility, flexibility and scalability, improving value to internal and external customers in ways that are sometimes difficult to achieve with traditional on-premise IT.
But every organisation’s goals are different, as is their journey to the cloud. Here we look at why organisations choose cloud, identify some of the biggest business benefits, and suggest how CDW can help guide you on the best options for your individual requirements.
Welcome to the final blog post covering the vSphere v6.0 End of General Support (EOGS) which ended on 12th March 2020. In our previous post, we covered how hardware incompatibilities present an opportunity to explore VMware software defined solutions (SDDC).
In this, the third and final high level post, we will cover the option of using VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS) - an excellent platform that can easily upgrade your environment from vSphere v5.x to the latest version.
An Opportunity to Modernise your Data Centre
VMware announced that vSphere v6.0 is going End of General Support (EOGS) on 12th March 2020. To read a quick introduction to this, you can read part 1 of this blog series here.
VMware recommend upgrading to vSphere v6.7 to remain in support. Whilst this may be an easy transition for some businesses, others will be faced with a complex upgrade project and one barrier to this could be hardware compatibility.
Welcome to our three-part blog series focusing on the end of general support (EOGS) for VMware vSphere v6.0. The series will help to provide you with the guidance and support to ensure your organisation is ready.
Part 1 below is an introduction to what the EOGS means for you. In part 2, we will discuss the opportunity to modernise your datacentre if a hardware refresh is required, whilst part 3 looks at an alternative option with VMware on AWS public cloud as a means to make this transition easier.
The cloud has transformed the way in which we work. Businesses are now spending more on cloud than they are on on-premise infrastructure as they look to take advantage of its organisational, cost and productivity benefits. This spending is only set to increase over the next few years with 40 percent of large UK businesses expect to be cloud-only by 2021.
Did you know there are 2.7 billion frontline workers worldwide? Accounting for 80 percent of the workforce globally, the importance of these deskless workers cannot be overstated, as they not only provide essential services but often serve as the face of your company to customers.
