Cloud computing provides computation, software, data access, and storage services that do not require end-user knowledge of the physical location and configuration of the system that delivers the services.
Regardless of the model - private, public or hybrid - the simplicity, uptime and capabilities of the network will ultimately define application performance and the user experience in the cloud. Pure Access IT Limited networks span across multiple customer segments, architectures and applications and its heritage in both data center and IP networking uniquely positions the company to deliver a comprehensive portfolio for private, public and hybrid clouds.
Private clouds are built of computer, network, and storage resources that enable the instantaneous provisioning of applications and workloads within the secure confines of enterprise data centers. The need for more business agility is driving the migration to private clouds with the level of compute, storage, and network virtualization directly correlating to an enterprise's private cloud-readiness.
Public clouds are transforming how service providers deliver IT services to their customers and how these services are consumed. This is driving a fundamental shift in business and revenue models for service providers, and will enhance their growth opportunities and profitability. Through cloud-optimized networks, service providers can deliver additional value-added services by hosting applications from their partners, and in turn providing their customers a single point of support, management, and billing.
Hybrid clouds bridge both the private and public cloud models and enable a customized and pragmatic way to leverage the benefits of both private and public cloud models. Hybrid clouds offer organizations the ability to have applications or workloads running within their own data center, as well as some of their applications running in a public cloud as an extension of their own data center. This combination enables a more flexible way for users to deploy cloud capabilities with the highest levels of performance, availability, and security.
