Why many services working together is the key to cloud computing
By: Jeffrey Maddox, Vice President, Systems Engineering, Service Provider, Cisco Canada
Cloud computing encompasses three key attributes, which include:
– “On-demand,” which means that resources can be provisioned immediately when needed, released when no longer required, and billed only when used.
– “At-scale,” which means the service provides the resource availability in order to meet whatever demands are made of it.
– “Multitenant environment,” which means that the resources are provided to many consumers from a single implementation, saving the provider significant costs.
Here at Cisco Canada, we believe cloud computing can be beneficial to all companies, as it allows organizations to meet their IT requirements using a flexible, on-demand and scalable model.
Cloud computing is beneficial to all companies, as it allows organizations to meet their IT requirements using a flexible, on-demand, and rapidly scalable delivery model. This allows companies to focus on their business rather than building and managing their IT infrastructure in-house.
Our cloud computing strategy is more than just one single cloud, but rather an ecosystem of clouds that combine private, public, hybrid and community cloud offerings. We offer an end-to-end solution from collaboration, to networking, to video, and it is the integration of these technologies that differentiates our cloud computing offerings.
I recently sat down to discuss all things cloud in this exclusive Cisco Canada interview. Please give it a watch.
