Information technology is undergoing rapid change as organizations of all types begin to embrace the idea of
moving computing infrastructure from on-premises to the cloud. It is easy to understand why the cloud has taken
off faster than any technology phenomenon in recent memory. The cloud has the potential to reduce total cost of
ownership (TCO) while enabling quicker responses to fast-moving markets and ever-changing customer needs.
“Being able to flex your compute resources based on changes in volume and customer demand increases agility,
making going to the cloud a very attractive proposition for our customers,” says Brian Johnston, chief technology
officer for QTS in Overland Park, Kansas, a provider of data center solutions and fully managed services.

In today’s digital economy, IT organizations are increasingly using public cloud technologies and services to meet their needs for increased agility and innovation, as well as cost management. This use of public cloud technologies is further complicated when companies use multiple cloud service providers, a concept also known as multi-cloud, and attempt to integrate on- and off-premises environments, known as hybrid cloud. IT organizations now must manage systems that span across both multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments, which presents new challenges for data protection. The Veeam Availability Platform offers solutions that can provide data protection to, from, and within multi-cloud environments, ensuring companies can fully leverage their public cloud providers and existing on-premises systems.

Two trends are pushing all lines of business—across all industries—toward cloud IT.
First, IT is being stretched more than ever. IT organizations are expected to expand services and meet tighter SLAs while having fewer resources, personnel, and skills to work with. With the IT queue growing longer than ever, both IT and LOB leaders are interested in using the cloud to quickly deploy the services users need.
For most IT organizations, the current way of doing business does not map to growth or enable the flexibility to compete in the digital age. Rigid and periodic hardware-refresh cycles cannot adequately scale, and applications built for on-premises resources using traditional development and management tools are no longer flexible enough to deliver the agility businesses need to grow or compete.
The fundamental reasons to move to a cloud computing environment are the business agility, high efficiency, scalability, and availability that the pooling of elastic computing resources provides, along with significant cost reductions and support for business growth. Oracle has invested deeply in developing a broad collection of cloud services with solutions at every layer of the technology stack.Customers who deploy these solutions in Oracle Cloud derive huge benefit from the fact that they have access to Oracle’s entire technology stack in the cloud, just as they did in on-premises deployments.
This white paper explains how you, as an existing Oracle E-Business Suite customer, can take
advantage of cloud computing right now, by exploiting the capabilities of Oracle’s Infrastructure as a
Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings to support growth, enhance business agility,
and reduce costs and risks.
Enterprises are moving to a software-defined, private cloud data center model for agility, operational efficiency, and a self-service approach to deploying applications and associated services. They are utilizing a two-tier hybrid services architecture to get the benefits of specialized hardware for front door network services and scalable software for application, stack-specific services. Read this whitepaper to learn how to integrate the necessary services with the orchestration and automation systems of a software-defined data center.
To succeed in this dynamic environment, organizations must create networks that combine core layer 4-7 functionality, programmability, and application fluency into a scalable Application Delivery Network. While these components all bring their individual benefits, the real lasting value lies in the resulting synergy of the combined solution.
