  1. 1. private cloud systems 38 T he number of companies using the cloud has grown by over 61 per cent since 2010, according to research from the Cloud Industry Forum. As a result, IT decision makers are now faced with an array of cloud options, making it difficult to decide on the right option for their business. Each cloud system offers different benefits to businesses, and the right cloud package varies depending on the nature of the business and its individual requirements. As impressive as the right cloud package can be, getting there can be a tricky process. Migrating large volumes of data across to a private cloud system often creates issues around security, speed and the future readiness of the destination, so it’s essential to ensure that the process is handled smoothly. With storage space exclusive to one business alone, it’s the private cloud model that offers greater security for your data. It often provides a more tailored platform for customers. As long as certain security standards are followed, providers can often design platforms around the customer’s individual needs. This appeals to larger organisations with specific security needs, although small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) may also be drawn to it, particularly those in retail. Businesses that need to adhere to PCI standards often require the added security that private cloud offers. The migration process Despite its benefits, making the switch to a private cloud system still has its risks in areas including security, speed, scalability and future proofing, all of which need to be taken into account. Security is often the key selling point for CIOs looking into private cloud, yet the actual transfer of data brings risks, not least during the physical transfer of data from A to B within the data centre. This also affects performance due to the virtual location of the data – when it’s in transfer, it becomes difficult to locate. The physical location also has an impact, as the migration process takes far longer if carried out over large distances. CIOs therefore need to consider what needs to be moved where, and whether any tools exist to ensure data remains responsive throughout the process. Companies mindful of security should consider the value of testing the new architecture before migrating. In our experience, customers benefit from using a pre-production stack. It allows customers to test the new cloud architecture before it becomes operational, in a safe environment. Not only can this help address potential security headaches before they can have an impact, the customer can also test the speed and scalability of the new product. CIOs also need to keep budget in mind. Speed is always a priority, as the less time data spends in transit, the less vulnerable it is. However, those on a budget can’t expect quick HIGHINTHECLOUD We’re at the point where cloud computing is the de facto standard for the industry. James Murray at Peer 1 Hosting tells you what you need to know about making the switch to a private cloud system.
  2. 2. private cloud systems results; as with any service, the entire process can be made much easier for those willing to pay more. Despite this, IT budgets remain relatively consistent, while demand for rapid migration increases, affecting those moving to any type of cloud system. Scalability is another key concern. The migration process has improved vastly in the last few years, as providers move away from the old fashioned connectionless model. Migrations are encrypted, allowing the customer to move data without worrying about data loss. Private cloud systems can offer a range of benefits through their adaptability to changing requirements. CIOs must consider what is absolutely necessary data during migration to avoid complicating the process. Not a ‘one size fits all’ approach Future proofing a private cloud system can be a data driven process relying on the increasing user interaction with application programming interfaces (APIs), rather than interactions with the user’s main cloud portal. This allows for a smarter, more responsive private cloud – for example, its load platform can create new servers automatically as the business requires them. CIOs can therefore take advantage of a more responsive system as the needs of the business evolve. The benefits of ‘going private’ are there for all to see, yet the migration process can be far more complex than those moving to a public cloud system. The ‘one size fits all’ approach common to many public cloud platforms may not always be responsive to user needs, but it simplifies the migration process by implementing a rigid set of security and speed standards for the process. CIOs, especially those at SMEs, need to consider the needs of their business carefully before committing to private cloud, as making the switch can be a costly process. Despite its benefits, making the switch to a private cloud system still has its risks in areas including security, speed, scalability and future proofing, all of which need to be taken into account. data centre news MAYISSUE DESIGN&FACILITIES MANAGEMENT As well as its regular range of features and news items, the May issue of Data Centre News will contain a major feature on design and facilities management.
