Cloud for the “Masses” – Applicability of Cloud for Legacy Workloads
Recently-published Saugatuck research provides Saugatuck’s clients with an in-depth analysis of how new offerings are expanding the capability of Cloud IT to include workloads previously considered not appropriate for Cloud.
We offer insights into two categories of workloads:
1. Designed for Cloud – such as web serving workloads, and
2. Enabled for Cloud – such as traditional data base workloads.
And, we provide several examples of emerging Cloud offerings that enable enterprise IT organizations to migrate workloads in the second category to Cloud for potential infrastructure savings.
We urge enterprise IT organizations to evaluate existing workloads and consider the emerging offerings such as Appnomic AppsOne, IBM SmartCloud Enterprise+, and OpSource App Ops.
We also urge vendors to continue to address the requirements of Enabled for Cloud workloads and expand the applicability of Cloud.
