Your IT department should not be in the business of managing data centers — it should be in the business of delivering value to your organization. The way enterprises own, manage and utilize data centers will continue to evolve. Is it smarter to keep workloads in your own data center or utilize a managed service provider’s data center? What type of hosting model? What type of consumption model? Organizations managing their own data centers are often challenged with fluctuating capacity, and paying for it, regardless of actual consumption. Without the right hybrid migration strategy, you will miss opportunities to consolidate and optimize applications and services, losing out on savings and increasing risk.
As more applications migrate to the cloud, the role of the traditional data center has changed. According to Gartner, 85% of infrastructure strategies will integrate on-premises, colocation, cloud and edge delivery options by 2025, compared with 20% in 2020. Workload placement today should be based on business outcomes, not the physical location of your data center. As hybrid and distributed cloud services providers, edge and IoT services proliferate, the role of the traditional data center will morph. IT leaders will focus more on their application portfolio, rather than on the physical infrastructure — moving away from traditional IT-architecture-driven decisions and toward a cloud-based services-driven strategy.
You may still have certain business applications that require the high transaction processing, high resiliency and high throughput of an on-premises infrastructure. Yet you may feel rushed or under pressure to move these mission-critical applications to the cloud when facing compelling trigger events, like a data center closure, enterprise merger, acquisition or market expansion. Rapid migration can pose unnecessary and avoidable risks that affect end- user experience and hamper your long-term transformation. Ensono offers proven expertise in managing complex physical, virtualized and cloud-based IT infrastructures, delivering enterprise solutions responsive to your organization’s unique needs so you can transform on your own timeline.
