Cloud computing provides many significant benefits to the enterprise, from reducing capital and operating expenses, to improving data security, network availability, application performance, and scalability. As a result, the demand for cloud services is growing exponentially. Whether it’s deploying a private cloud, or the addition of a workload in the public cloud to complement the company’s existing datacenter applications and infra- structure, the IT goals remain the same—reducing costs and increasing operational efficiencies to more easily meet the enterprise’s key business objectives.
With the accelerated interest in cloud computing, many service providers, be they managed service providers or hosting providers, are unable to onboard new customer instances fast enough to keep pace with demand. Others are struggling to satisfy their clients’ growing need for high-performance platforms delivered as a service. To meet these escalating expectations and speed the customer journey to the cloud, service providers need more powerful infrastructure starting with a high-performance storage platform that can facilitate faster deployment, improved performance, and better scalability for their suite of cloud offerings.
