We’re on an aggressive path to solve the challenge of creating a public-private hybrid cloud. As a business expands, its public and private cloud platforms in use can become a nightmare: inconsistent policies, lack of interoperability and potentially weak security – not to mention they can be time consuming and complicated. It may technically be a hybrid cloud, but it’s unmanageable.
Peak 10 is partnering with Cisco to make hybrid cloud practical for growing small and medium enterprises. Cisco now offers Intercloud Fabric for providers and enterprises, a software-based platform for building wide-ranging hybrid clouds. Peak 10 will operationalize Cisco’s technology and provide customers with a seamless, secure and managed hybrid cloud – integrating private cloud and public cloud services –work alongside you to define the best path forward to enable your business through this combination of technologies.
For clients in regulated businesses, this partnership adds flexibility to compliant cloud services. Peak 10’s leadership and experience in HIPAA and PCI compliant cloud helps your hybrid cloud meet regulatory requirements. Clients also benefit from increased cloud-based disaster recovery capabilities, or DRaaS, a Peak 10 strength.
Intercloud connects the far-ranging world of cloud, allowing hybrid clouds to be centrally managed and improve its governance to enterprise standards. With this “cloud of clouds,” you get a global, highly secure cloud platform that addresses the needs of the Internet of Everything. True hybrid cloud is on its way to being more manageable and practical.
“As a leader in secure, compliant cloud, Peak 10 consults with our clients to tailor solutions for their specific business needs,” says Jeff Spalding, Peak 10 Executive VP & Chief Operating Officer. “Cisco’s Intercloud leadership and hybrid cloud solutions allow us to better address clients’ desire for a fully integrated hybrid cloud services.”
No longer is each cloud platform its own island. With the Intercloud, your Peak 10 tailored cloud solution can systematically connect to integrate a variety of cloud platforms. This hybrid cloud infrastructure will seamlessly incorporate private clouds, Cisco Powered cloud services and public clouds such as Windows Azure and Amazon Web Services. The resulting public-private hybrid model is integrated efficiently with proper centralized management and control. You can create and manage policies that are uniformly applied across all clouds, ensuring that your business-specific rules are enforced throughout the hybrid cloud.
Better yet, your hybrid cloud becomes adaptable. The Intercloud Fabric lets you create workloads in any cloud environment and migrate workloads across heterogeneous private and public clouds. Secure workload mobility means that as your business needs change, you’re never locked into a particular cloud delivery model.
In the coming months, Peak 10 will integrate Cisco’s Intercloud technology across our cloud services. We will be starting conversations with clients about extending existing cloud solutions into a hybrid private-public cloud, or designing a new hybrid cloud services. As your business thrives, your hybrid cloud through Peak 10 will grow and adapt with you.
