IBM, one of the largest worldwide providers of IaaS with eight data centers all over the globe, has now expanded into providing SmartCloud Enterprise services to its customers.
What differentiates IBM from Amazon and Rackspace IaaS is that IBM customers will be able to use system P servers and system Z mainframes in the company’s cloud.
On Tuesday, IBM announced that it will now be providing its Enterprise+ services in almost all the major regions of the globe. Some Good news for the customers of IBM is that they will now be able to choose if they want to manage their own data on the cloud or let the professionals at IBM do it.
IBM focuses on rise and fall in the demand of the applications instead of pushing the customers to “learn about the infrastructure of cloud and then make decisions”. Sowell claims that IBM will be better equipped to provide quicker delivery of application services once it has automated the “provisioning of a Standard SAP application”. According to Sowell, the company will be offering new services that will help customers in determining what workload is more suited to move to the SmartCloud. EVERTEC Group LLC and Virtual Computing Environment announced Tuesday the introduction of the VBlock, a technological platform that provides all the necessary components to facilitate the virtualization of company’s data center, minimize risks, as well as the complexity and the implementation time of new projects.
The availability in Puerto Rico of VBlock strengthens EVERTEC’s cloud services offering, which includes email, virtual data centers and business continuity solutions, company executives said.
EVERTEC is the first company that Virtual Computing Environment has authorized and certified to offer VBlock in the local market.

At SAP®’s annual SAPPHIRE Conference on May 5-7 in Orlando, you’ll interact with thousands of IT professionals searching for the best of the best in cloud computing. Second, embrace the fact that cloud computing is the new normal; it’s all around you, from the SAPPHIRE agenda builder you downloaded on your smart phone to the Uber ride sharing service you accessed at the airport.
Aside from meeting with business associates and attending compelling keynotes and educational sessions, you’re probably hoping to take away some new ideas for meeting your company’s key business challenges with IT. Looking to move your applications onto private or multi-tenant cloud platforms?This presents its own set of challenges for many organizations and is especially true for core business applications such as SAP, where ERP systems integration with downstream or legacy applications is often a necessity.
Sungard AS knows how to manage SAP production systems and is using this knowledge to build solutions for customers whose requirements aren’t being satisfied either internally or with their current SAP hosting providers. If you can’t make it to Orlando to talk with us in person about cloud computing, please visit our Cloud Services or Disaster Recovery sites for more information. Advances in diagnostic imaging are driving a need for new ways to access, store and share medical images. The world’s biggest software company said on Tuesday it was expanding its Windows Azure business to include a major new region in Australia. Data centers, renting out technology resources such as computing power and storage, will be established in the states of New South Wales and Victoria.

Utilizing private cloud for mission critical applications such as SAP while relying on public cloud for email systems, web hosting, etc. Maintaining all systems internally during normal periods and relying on the cloud for peaks.  This is known as Cloud Bursting and is excellent for workloads that cycle throughout the day, week, month or year.
Utilizing private cloud for all systems and capacity while relying on cloud based Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions.
Many more options exist and any combination of options is possible.  If private cloud is part of the cloud strategy for a company there is a common set of building blocks required to design the computing environment.

Unlike the other two systems SMT is a reference architecture a customer can build internally or along with a trusted partner.  This provides one of the two unique benefits of this solution.
Because SMT is a reference architecture it can be built in stages married to existing refresh and budget cycles.  Existing equipment can be reutilized or phased out as needed. Of the three solutions Matrix is the only one that is a complete solution provided by a single vendor. Matrix provides the greatest physical server scalability of any of the three solutions with architectural limits of thousands of servers. Vblock is supported by a unique partnering between Cisco, EMC and VMware as well as there ecosystem of channel partners.  This provides robust front and backend support for customer before during and after install. Private cloud can provide a great deal of benefits when implemented properly, but like any major IT project the benefits are greatly reduced by mistakes and improper design.  Pre-designed and tested infrastructure solutions such as the ones above provide customers a proven platform on which they can build a private cloud. Also virtualization is before consolidation as it makes workloads more portable and much easier to consolidate both in tech, finance, and political arenas.
I definitely agree that you need to ensure ways to monitor and quantify successes and failures during the entire process.

This added feature in the service will better cater to IBM customers having higher workloads. The company has chosen Barcelona, Spain, to build its ninth data center, which is expected to be completed in the mid of this year.
Customers availing the SAP BusinessObjects or SAP business Suite will be able to avail the new services. Sowell predicts that at this rate the company will comfortably hit its mark of $7 billion in revenues by the year 2015.

You’ll also see SAP’s unique partner ecosystem in action – connecting technology companies, service providers, systems integrators, channel partners and consultants with the goal of providing customers robust solutions for managing complex IT environments. Customers are looking for a trusted advisor to fulfill IT needs and help them run their businesses more simply, and SAP technology partners offer a myriad of products, services and solutions. Look for partners who can help you shift your SAP installations to the cloud to optimize your own essential business functions, from network platforms to software as a service to SAP HANA.

Add to that the organizational challenges of working with multiple cloud platforms or service providers, and cloud computing just doesn’t seem to live up to its promise of IT agility and operational efficiency.Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) is working hard to change that.

IBM claims that its SmartCloud enterprise+ can guarantee a very high availability of OS-instance.
Sowell claims that giving the customers an option to either handle the SAP apps themselves or let IBM do it is the heart of his company’s strategy. However, the company has no way of finding which service brings in what amounts of revenues.
