Cloud computing elicits different definitions from nearly every IT professional who has had time to go on record with an opinion. The future of the data center is being radically altered with the introduction of virtualization and cloud computing in the enterprise environment. This has led to a tremendous amount of confusion that can hamper the development of an effective data center roadmap.
We are not confused in our view of how these technologies will impact our clients, or what next steps are the best. CompuCom’s private cloud infrastructure can either be located at the customer’s premise or at a colocation facility. We offer infrastructure utility computing models, which allow customers take advantage of pay-per-use computing and storage pricing. In addition, we assist clients with their migration to the cloud through a full range of data center migration services such as assessments, data center move and application rationalization assessment and analysis, as well as ongoing management of cloud based-services.
Each organization’s virtualization and cloud migration strategy differs. However, the need to deliver improved business value by maximizing resource utilization and operational flexibility remains a common priority. Combining the processes and procedures built into our Integrated Infrastructure Management (IIM™) framework with powerful cloud-based lifecycle management tools from partners like BMC ensures that your data center architecture addresses the critical requirements of your business in an intelligent and cost-effective manner.

Ongoing support and management of cloud environments is more than merely provisioning and managing virtual machines. It requires the alignment of cloud services to business needs and efficient service delivery. CompuCom assists its clients in migrating to a flexible, controlled cloud that focuses on business intent, managing the evolution to the cloud and offering an integrated set of services based on intelligent, policy-based ongoing operations.
