iland mixed cloud
iland Mixed Cloud blends the strengths of
both virtual and physical environments
iland Mixed Cloud provides the benefits of cloud architecture while supporting traditional physical environments. It provides configurations that combine virtual and physical, colocated assets—for example, a mostly virtualized environment that requires physical servers, routers, or other hardware such as a network appliance acting as a firewall or spam filter.
There are two sides to every cloud
The benefits of virtualization in a scalable, flexible cloud infrastructure are undeniable. But not everything can or will be virtualized which means that IT organizations have to support physical servers as well as a virtual infrastructure. The challenge is finding a way to integrate the two.
Reasons for mixed architecture
iland Mixed Cloud provides security, costs savings, and scalability while meeting specific business and technical needs. Some of the commonly cited needs for the iland Mixed Cloud solution include security, technical and operational requirements, and intellectual property issues.
