How to Manage Morbid Cloud and IT Infrastructure Sprawl

David Cumberworth, Managing Director EMEA, Virtual Instruments

In a recent Enterprise CIO event we asked delegates where they were on their cloud journey on a scale from 1-10. No one scored themselves above 4. Most said they were only just starting. The reason for this slow adoption is that making informed cloud decisions is hard work. Running your business-critical applications on someone else’s IT infrastructure with nothing more than an availability SLA and a verbal promise of performance is madness – and the reason 65-70% of Enterprises have brought something back in-house from a cloud or Iaas provider. This seminar explores how Virtual Instruments customers use real application performance to test cloud suppliers before making informed migration decisions. By baselining the application performance and its dependencies on-premises gives a starting point of what to not only expect in the cloud, but also demand. If you have a performance SLA in-house you need the same or better with a host supplier. Virtual Instruments enables you to understand hybrid IT infrastructure and Guarantee application performance It enables IT to justify its value as the specialist Infrastructure supplier to the business.
