Enterprises have historically provisioned IT infrastructure with significant headroom to allow them the flexibility to handle peak or variable workloads at short notice. But with today's emphasis on efficiency and cash flow conservation, corporate IT departments can no longer afford to tie up valuable capital in infrastructure purchases, endure the delays of a lengthy procurement and commissioning cycle, or justify the year-round power, cooling and maintenance costs of supporting capacity for seasonal demand; that lies dormant the rest of the time.
As a result, IT strategists have begun to adapt, in growing numbers to the concept of 'buy, not build' by taking advantage of the cloud. This white paper explores how enterprises can access secure, adaptive cloud infrastructure on demand in the form of a Virtual Private Data Centre. It provides clear guidance on how your organisation can similarly benefit from unprecedented agility and scalability while eliminating the wasteful tradition of over-provisioning with a practical, three-step process.
