Today we’re pleased to announce our partnership with Emulex which will help enable support for standard x86 rack servers for our end users! With this new feature, we have taken another giant leap toward our goal of minimizing the complexities involved in managing converged infrastructures. This new capability makes Egenera the first and only vendor in the industry to deliver open converged infrastructure management capabilities.

Egenera’s Cloud User Survey

Here at Egenera, we focus on helping customers utilize clouds and cloud resources as efficiently as possible. Nowadays, with so many specialized cloud services out there, it’s easy for IT to lose track of what departments are using which cloud services, and whether those services are used enough to justify the expense.  This is why we developed Egenera Cloud Suite; to let organizations get all the benefits of cloud computing while eliminating the cost and complexity that often accompanies it. While the feedback on our products has been great so far, we’re always trying to find new ways to simplify, unify and converge infrastructure. That’s why we’re turning to you, the users, for your feedback and ideas on the cloud. Last week, we launched our first ever Cloud User Survey in order to gauge user sentiment towards the cloud. Why now you ask? Given that we’ve moved into the next… continue reading

Current State of the Cloud

Posted on: August 6th, 2014 by John Humphreys No Comments

Back in January, Greg Satell made a case on Forbes for the cloud being the most disruptive technology ever; disruptive in the sense that it would completely change the way we do business. Since then, numerous reports and studies showing a massive increase in cloud adoption have been published. For example, North Bridge and Gigaom’s Future of Cloud Survey reported that 45% of the 1358 businesses surveyed said they already, or plan to, run their company from the cloud. Yes, we know that cloud adoption is increasing, but what can we make of the cloud environment we’re living in today? Let’s start with the hybrid cloud. We’ve heard the claims that 2014 was supposed to be the year of the hybrid cloud, but the evidence suggests otherwise. Typically, we’ve seen that organizations have their IT department manage on-premise virtualization, this is what they refer to as their private cloud. However,… continue reading

Lowering Cloud Costs

Posted on: July 28th, 2014 by John Humphreys No Comments

We’re more than halfway through 2014, and the cloud’s future has never been brighter. As the Future of Cloud Survey indicated, the adoption of cloud and cloud services has been steadily rising over the last few years. For example, SaaS adoption has more than quintupled by going from a mere 11% in 2011 to a staggering 74% in 2014! While it’s clear to see that cloud usage is trending upward, what often gets overlooked is that not all cloud adopters are taking full advantage of the cloud’s cost-saving potential. This is largely due to improper app migration and an inefficient use of cloud resources. As a reminder, enterprises typically move their apps to the cloud in an attempt to maintain agility and reduce costs. The problem is that most enterprises don’t optimize their apps to run in the cloud. Rather than taking the time to implement the needed code and… continue reading

Enter the Game: How MSPs Can Play in the Cloud

Posted on: July 18th, 2014 by John Humphreys No Comments

Although some managed service providers have made the transition to the cloud, many others have yet to do so. Why should these non-adopters follow suit now, and what is the best way to add cloud services to their portfolios?  Through white label offerings! The main reason for selecting a white label offering is that there is a high level of risk involved with creating it all in-house. For many MSPs, that means spending an excess amount of time and money on infrastructure and a homemade or even a store bought management platform, which clearly hurts overall productivity and efficiency. Another alternative would be to resell services from a vendor like Amazon where margins are tight and management capabilities and support are practically non-existent. On top of that, taking on the responsibility of building the infrastructure on your own limits your presence around the globe, leading to possible latency and other… continue reading
