More Reasons To Switch To Private Cloud Computing In MO

As we spoke about in our last blog on cloud computing in MO, there are many benefits that your company can reap when you switch over to private cloud computing or at the very least, virtualization. Here at FracRack, we’re completely capable and ready to help you make this transition so that things go as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. Today we’re back with a couple more reasons why your company should seriously consider transitioning over to private cloud computing.

  • Better resource management means you’ll be able to fully utilize your hardware. It’s true – virtualization will significantly increase the value of your physical server hardware. That means that instead of having 5 physical servers with an average of 10% CPU utilization, you can virtualize the 5 servers with FracRack onto one physical server. This means you’ll decrease rack space, it’s easer to manage, and you’ll lower your power usage.
  • When you transition to from physical servers to virtual ones, you get better flexibility. This is possibly one of the biggest alluring benefits of switching to cloud computing. You’ll never look back after being able to spin up and tear down a server in a matter of minutes as this is incredibly useful and powerful. You can say goodbye to the wasted effort of trying to size a server when you can create one on the fly. Need more RAM? Need more disk space? Need more CPU? No problem! When you transition to cloud computing, you’re able to reallocate resources in minutes.

Why Your Company Needs To Transition To Private Cloud Computing In MO

Cloud computing in MO, a huge buzzword in the IT world over the past few years, has brought incredible promise to the world of information technology. Pooled computing resources, divided and allocated to different users, have been proven in the development and testing realm of IT to have tremendous benefits. Today we’ve compiled a couple reasons why we think that it’s time your company rethink your IT infrastructure and consider moving towards private cloud computing.

  • You will save time and money when you switch to private cloud computing. This is one of the best parts about the private cloud! Not only do you get all of the great benefits of security and virtualization, but it can also be more cost effective and less work than hosting your own in-house servers or buying your own dedicated servers. As a rule of thumb, if your company has more than 2 dedicated servers, it could greatly benefit from virtualization. If your company has over 10 servers, it’s time to seriously consider private cloud computing with FracRack.
  • Connecting a SAN to your private cloud allows for improved protection against data disasters. Not only will you be able to load balance between servers, but you will also be able to shut down one server without causing any downtime if you have at least 1 extra server. Imagine performing maintenance on your server without experiencing any downtime! Your IT team wouldn’t be able to thank you enough.

The conclusion here is that private cloud computing in MO saves your company money, time, and helps you and your IT team sleep easier.
