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.

Pricing Models

Cornerstone is available in two pricing options (by virtual machine or physical host) to improve private cloud resource consumption flexibility for our customers.

cloud savings
There are a number of workload types that are well suited for the secure clouds including:

  • DMZ sites: Consider websites, extranets or other public facing applications that have no dependence on your in-house systems. Keep them completely isolated, where they can pose no risk to your internal data and resources in a public cloud.
  • Capacity on demand: Don’t invest in physical infrastructure to support seasonal or occasional traffic spikes. Copy your existing VMs to the cloud and turn them off when not in use to save money.
  • Disaster recovery (DR): All of your applications aren’t mission critical, so don’t pay for mission critical DR for them. Re-create your catalog of server images for Low and Medium priority applications in the cloud and keep them powered down until you need them.
  • Development and testing: Have a feature or function that you are considering adding to one of your custom solution offerings? Develop and test it in the cloud. Take advantage of the pay-per-use pricing and global footprints that a Cornerstone Secure Public Cloud can offer to reduce costs and improve your cycle times.
  • Temporary use: Trying out new applications for possible solutions offerings? Hedge your bet by standing up a temporary instance of your key applications in the cloud.
  • Hybrid clouds: Utilize private network connectivity (i.e., MPLS) along with hypervisor utilities, like vCloud Connector, to securely link your internal “private cloud” infrastructure to the public cloud to create hybrid environments that supplement your existing investments with extra capacity when you need it.
