In this special technology white paper, Empowering Cloud Utilization with Cloud Bursting, you’ll learn about how a deployment paradigm known as cloud bursting has emerged as a means to enable organizations to leverage the inherent scale and on demand capabilities of commercial cloud infrastructure in concert with their existing, proven on premise capabilities. Cloud bursting allows organizations to seamlessly partition workloads across on premise and public cloud infrastructures in order to handle excess workloads and “bursty” requirements, while only paying for the additional resources when they are needed. Adopting such a paradigm allows organizations to minimize the potential risks of cloud adoption by enabling strategic migration of clustered workloads, such as high performance computing workloads.
The paper explores the primary benefits of the approach, including: minimize risk through cloud bursting, ability to scale flexibly and dynamically, and manage costs. The white paper includes the following topics:
- Benefits of Approach
- Minimize Risk
- Scale Flexibly and Dynamically
- Manage Costs
- Cloud Bursting
- Cloud Adoption with Bright
Organizations are faced with the unknowns of cloud transition, and often dedicate significant resources to the instantiation and management of cloud resources, in parallel with existing infrastructure. This allows the organization to begin experimentation within the cloud while maintaining the services provided by existing infrastructure, but in doing so it consumes precious resources needed to manage the redundant ecosystems.
Bright Cluster Manager is ideally suited help organizations begin to realize the benefits of cloud without impacting current operations. Through cloud
bursting, Bright Cluster Manager helps organizations extend their on premise workloads into cloud infrastructure in order to achieve new levels of efficiency and scalability, while also minimizing the risk and resource burden of traditional cloud transition.
