Cloud computing has ushered in a golden era for software companies. The cloud’s low barrier to entry allows creativity to flourish, especially for software developers who are creating applications directly on cloud-based infrastructure. Cloud-based infrastructure enables developers to do what they love: solve business problems and bring innovative new ideas to life, using their choice of tools. In a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, applications can easily be deployed to a cloud service, and delivered to clients who appreciate the ease of access and low cost. The cloud model relieves the developer and the enterprise IT professional from the burden of managing or maintaining capital-intense infrastructure. But the cloud’s low barrier to entry also allows competing software providers to enter the market every day, from every sector. Independent software vendors, or ISVs, are pressured by increased competition to deliver their applications faster, with greater functionality and ease of

Self-service is an advanced element of private cloud environments that improves management efficiency and business agility, as well as lowering operating expenses. A self-service environment streamlines the interaction between users and the IT department. It empowers internal consumers of IT services to request and receive appropriately configured resources on demand with minimal IT intervention. NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, the NetApp Management SDK with open APIs, and key ecosystem partnerships enable enterprises to easily integrate their orchestration solutions and custom management tools with the NetApp storage service catalog for automated storage provisioning and protection. Customers can thereby create a self-service, web-based portal that efficiently delivers IT as a service to virtualization administrators, application administrators, and users, while enabling IT staff to focus on higher value activities.

In today's business environment, organizations of all sizes are struggling to maintain the advanced IT capabilities they need to be competitive while reining in cost and complexity. Shifting to off-premise hosted models, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and business process outsourcing, is a common activity undertaken to manage costs. One of the main challenges businesses face in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery models is the task of synchronizing data and integrating the multitude of systems already in datacenters with new cloud-based applications, not to mention within the cloud itself. Traditionally, this required organizations to leverage existing tools as well as custom development. This white paper looks at how two enterprises encountered problems with cloud integration and adopted IBM WebSphere Cast Iron to solve their immediate problems and extend use more broadly across their organizations.

Businesses receive a number of benefits from running their IT operations within virtualized cloud environments, including: automation, economics and efficieny. Yet, as more mission-critical applications and workloads are run within cloud environments, IT staff lack the means for effective management. Businesses need new tools that meet cloud-era demands and deliver the same benefits as cloud computing itself: automation, economics and efficiency.

Enterprises look to private clouds for more than just virtual infrastructure provisioning. Private cloud vendors have started to bundle additional capabilities into their solutions, including pervasive VM management capabilities, design tools for complex application templates, and service catalogs. Over the next 12 months, more than half of enterprises will prioritize building internal private clouds. Today, the most common approach is through the purchase of commercial software to layer atop existing infrastructure resources. Regardless of the approach you choose, there’s no shortage of tools to support your efforts.

It’s no secret that more and more businesses are leveraging the power of the cloud. And there’s good reason for that. Cloud computing offers the promise of cost-effective capacity on demand—anytime, anywhere, and on any device. But taking advantage of the cloud’s many benefits isn’t as simple as signing up for an account. Like any other IT tool, it has to be used strategically. Making the move requires an end-to-end strategy designed to maximize the benefits of the cloud for your unique business needs. This infopaper will help you do just that.

AWS is the most widely deployed public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution in the world and is a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for IaaS (see "Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service"). AWS offers a large number of built-in security capabilities (see Note 1), and questions on the proper practices for securing workloads in AWS are increasing.1 AWS is a not a "consumer grade" IaaS cloud. It is a market leader, with a portfolio of security capabilities and security ecosystem partners unmatched by other IaaS providers. However, simply moving existing workloads to AWS without rethinking security tools, processes and system management will result in workloads that are less secure than they were when located within enterprise data centers. Conversely, a properly managed and secured workload in AWS will be at least as — and, in most cases, more — secure than in an enterprise data center.
