The 4 Misconceptions of Commodity Cloud Providers

As cloud providers race to commoditize their offerings, they sap value from their services with a “one-size-fits-all” cloud model. But your organization is unique, and it deserves a cloud that is uniquely tailored for its success. Download our White Paper to discover why cloud providers with the biggest marketing budgets don’t always deliver the biggest results.

The Cloud Conundrum: Public, Private & Hybrid Cloud

Solution providers around the globe are making an attempt to cloud-enable their solutions…their biggest challenge? Figuring out which cloud to use. If you don’t choose the right cloud for the right solution, you could lose the cost-savings, agile innovations, and data security that the cloud provides. Find out which cloud is right for your organization.

3 Reasons You Need a Cloud Partner, Not a Provider

Commodity cloud vendors love to market their offerings as the fastest and easiest route to the cloud, but when it comes to the management, security, and transparency of your cloud infrastructure…you’re on your own.Download our White Paper to find out the 3 reasons you need a cloud partner, not a provider.

Uncompromised Performance

With dedicated hardware and no hypervisor, each server’s full processing power is available to applications, resulting in better performance than a comparable virtual server.

Delivering roughly four times the performance levels of traditional VM-based clouds, high-I/O workloads, such as large database applications, can run at peak performance. Cornerstone Bare Metal Cloud is also highly consistent since resources are not oversubscribed among tenants.

.

Security and Compliance

Cornerstone Bare metal Clouds provide complete isolation and protection of an organization’s applications and data from both outside intrusions and other tenants. Customers get assurance that workloads will run consistently and that provisioned resources will always be available. Full control of the server environment provides customers the capability to implement custom security configurations while still benefiting from the provider’s hardened security perimeter. IT organizations can meet essential compliance checks that require data isolation without sacrificing the benefits of the public cloud.

Flexible and Scalable

Utilizing best-of-breed compute, storage and network technology, Artisan’s experienced staff and Cloud Architect℠ software can quickly provision and configure a Cornerstone Bare Metal Cloud specifically for an organization’s business needs. Artisan Infrastructure’s answer for the modern data center provides a business-focused approach to technology, simplified management for customers, increased speed of delivery and a repeatable, standardized automation and orchestration approach.

Bare Metal Cloud Use Cases

There are many real-world use cases in which bare-metal clouds provide significant advantages over virtualized clouds.

Migrate Existing Applications to the Cloud

Many IT organizations are still trying to determine how best to move their existing applications to the cloud. Migration teams can use bare-metal services to mirror their on-premises environment and migrate applications with ease. Granular customization helps them meet application dependencies and gain benefits such as scalability, flexibility, and agility. Migration teams can avoid the costs, complexity, and risks associated with ripping and replacing application infrastructure, and can eliminate the time consuming process of re-architecting applications for a public cloud environment.

Multi-tier Applications with Virtual and Bare-metal Components

Multitier applications can have diverse requirements that necessitate the use of both bare-metal and virtual infrastructure. For example, database tiers typically require the high performance and complete isolation of bare metal. Other components, such as web tiers, will instead benefit from the agility and elasticity of a virtualized environment. Users can achieve an ideal blend of benefits by deploying the right application tiers to the right form of infrastructure.

Performance Intensive Applications that Require Consistency

High demand and oversubscription in virtual environments can impact performance. Applications requiring high performance consistency, such as those not designed to scale in and out to accommodate fluctuations in demand, can also benefit from bare-metal clouds.
