What is an Enterprise Cloud?
An enterprise cloud is a unified IT operating environment that melds private, public and distributed clouds, providing a single point of control for managing infrastructure and applications in any cloud. The enterprise cloud delivers a consistent, high-performance and seamless experience for both cloud operators and consumers of cloud-delivered services and applications.
The enterprise cloud is a model for IT infrastructure and platform services that delivers the advantages of public cloud services for enterprise applications without compromising on the value provided by private datacenter environments.
Companies of all types in a wide variety of industries are adopting an Enterprise Cloud platform —including those in healthcare, retail, financial services, manufacturing, federal agencies and many more.
Within enterprises, adoption is being driven largely by IT departments looking to modernize datacenters. They’re seeking the benefits of the cloud, its services, and SLAs, along with the security and control that they’ve grown accustomed to within the datacenter. The Enterprise Cloud provides the “best of both worlds” to meet these needs. Simultaneously, business owners or app owners are adopting the Enterprise Cloud with the goal of taking their products to market quickly without being delayed by IT.
