The Need For The Public Cloud Alternative

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Private cloud infrastructure based on composable technologies result in environments that are suitable for all your workloads while also providing you with many of the benefits of the public cloud, and without the pitfalls. Composable infrastructure is an emerging data center architecture that provides you with the resource flexibility inherent in traditional infrastructure, but with the economics, ease-of-use, and scalability of cloud.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Carmelo McCutcheon, VP of Pre-Sales Engineering and Services at Cloudistics, will discuss how with composable infrastructure, you’re able to maintain peak levels of application performance without having to mess around with LUNs and other archaic constructs.
