Enterprises are moving to the cloud because it offers greater flexibility and lower cost. The first wave of cloud native and content apps are well on their way, but there's a new wave of traditional enterprise applications that enterprises are still struggling to move to the cloud.
The Q&A walks you through the most common issues related to cloud storage—and how HPE Cloud Volumes put any remaining concerns to rest.
Today it's difficult to move traditional enterprise apps and their data to the cloud. Data mobility frees enterprise apps from the confines of traditional hosted data centres and allows them to quickly on-ramp to the cloud and back as required. It makes moving existing applications much easier and less risky without the need to re-write or re-architect them.
Data is the greatest source of vendor lock-in in the cloud. Once data is stored with one cloud provider, it is very difficult and expensive to move it anywhere else. Data becomes trapped because you can only use or access it without the confines of that cloud provider.
Easy data mobility allows you to move and/or use data among multiple cloud providers, inlcuding your own data centre or private cloud.
Not only does this eliminate lock-in, but easy mobility enables enterprises to take advantage of the resources across multiple clouds—optimising for price, availability, or location.
Enterprises are moving towards easy-to-use, multi-cloud solutions that avoid vendor lock-in and provide an easy cloud on-ramp.
These enterprise-grade solutions provide cloud storage that enables you to use your choice of multiple cloud providers without the need to migrate data. They also allow you to easily move data to and from your data centre and the cloud.
This type of cloud storage is as easy to use and more reliable as native cloud storage—with all the functionality you need to run your enterprise applications.
With HPE Cloud Volumes you get an enterprise-grade multi-cloud storage service for running your applications on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
