Cloud Integration


Realize the Benefits of a Converged Cloud Strategy

Cloud solutions are a response to rapidly evolving business needs, which in turn are a response to constituent demands. Anytime/anywhere computing is no longer an option, but an assumed requisite in the current IT landscape.

As business executives and IT managers evaluate which cloud solution is right for them, they usually discover the result is a hybrid blend of public and private cloud delivery models. Additionally, various service models in those clouds include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (Saas).

Cloud infrastructures require software applications to run on top of them. And Cloud applications require access to the critical corporate data that is typically locked away in various on-premise systems. So for cloud applications to offer maximum value to their users, they need to provide a simple mechanism to:

  • Import or load external data
  • Export or replicate their data for reporting or analysis purposes
  • Keep their data synchronized with on-premise applications

 

 

A Strategy of Cloud Integration

Along with all of these solutions is the need for Cloud Integration services. It is vital to understand how all these varying offerings line up against each other and in what way to integrate them together to provide a complete overall solution.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

IaaS offers the consumer a basic running operating system instance, usually as a virtual machine hosted on a hypervisor. Other infrastructure services are usually offered alongside the OS instance like VLANs, Load Balancers, Firewalls, Templated OS Instance Images to deploy from, etc. Connectivity to the service can be accomplished by utilizing the Internet or a dedicated WAN circuit. The consumer is then able to install their applications, databases, etc. and have complete control of everything inside of the operating system instance.

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

PaaS moves up the stack from Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) by providing a development environment or "Platform" with a predefined set of programming languages, database, and application software. This allows the programmer to quickly create applications without having to configure and maintain the underlying development infrastructure, thus allowing a faster time to market for application development.

Software as a Service (SaaS)

SaaS moves up the stack from Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). SaaS provides a specified application that can be customized to the unique needs of the customer. It allows the customer to get up and running quickly without the investment in obtaining, developing, and configuring the underlying infrastructure.

SaaS prevents the user from having any interaction within the Operating System (OS) or the development of the application.
