Reducing IT Complexity with Cloud Options

Abstract Today’s business landscape is constantly changing in response to digital transformation. Against this backdrop, efficient and cost-effective IT infrastructure, namely cloud computing, is critical to giving organizations a competitive edge. Cloud computing allows businesses to scale up and out fast to keep pace with ongoing market disruptions. However, no single cloud can meet all needs; IT infrastructures must also adapt to fast-evolving business requirements. Therefore, there is a need to deploy different cloud models, such as private and public clouds. The dilemma is that, by adopting varied infrastructure and technologies, organizations have to face increasingly complex IT environments. In this article, we will discuss cloud options that enable you to enjoy the benefits of various cloud models without complicating your IT landscape. The IT Landscape Today As digitalization has rapidly accelerated the transformation of industries over the past decade, business leaders now expect more from their IT departments. They are demanding better and faster service and higher operational and cost efficiency. In addition, several major industry trends have significantly influenced the direction of information technology, including: The growth of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend The rise of Software-Defined Infrastructure (SDI) and server virtualization Widespread adoption of cloud computing as a major business enabler Increased use of all-flash storage in specific enterprise applications Challenges of Legacy IT Organizations still operating with traditional legacy data center setups will struggle to adapt quickly to new market changes due to constraints imposed by their infrastructure.  This struggle often arises from the complex composition of multiple platforms and software components, each with separate management consoles and policy engines. These issues give rise to the following challenges: Difficulty in scaling out and scaling up dynamically, easily, and linearly to meet increasing user demands. Greater management complexity due to operations, policies, and processes tied to IT platforms for various workloads. Frequent and costly refresh cycles — as soon as one component is updated or upgraded, it’s time to update/upgrade the next. A constant need to up-skill talent to keep pace with newer technologies running on different cloud platforms (multi-cloud). Cloud Options to Reduce IT Complexity These challenges have two main areas that need to be addressed: increasing efficiency by "doing more with less" and decreasing costs relating to operating, maintaining, and elevating IT capabilities. Several options have gained popularity rapidly, and we shall discuss two widely accepted models by many organizations globally. Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) HCI is a data center architecture that embraces cloud principles, economics, and a software-first architecture. It consolidates compute, storage, networking, and management using virtualization on commodity x86 servers. This simplifies operations, increases efficiency and scalability, and improves agility while reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO). Typically managed through a single user interface, HCI enables resources to be provisioned and executed at the virtual machine (VM) or container level through a shared resource pool. This allows high availability and workload mobility, facilitating efficient performance and capacity scaling. HCI also helps organizations consolidate servers on a common platform at the hypervisor layer. This greatly reduces the number of physical servers in a data center, thus lowering power and cooling consumption and minimizing the carbon footprint. HCI also lessens the need to create a new physical hardware environment for each deployment, significantly reducing operational bottlenecks and enabling businesses to move forward faster. In summary, it has proven to effectively address the challenges of legacy IT infrastructures by reducing and eliminating IT complexity. Hybrid Cloud A hybrid cloud integrates public and private clouds into a unified environment. This setup provides centralized control, operations, and management of cloud resources. It allows organizations with mixed applications, data, and operating systems to extend their on-premises IT infrastructure to the public cloud while retaining control. Businesses can deploy workloads in private and public clouds, transferring data between them as requirements and costs change. Legacy applications can operate in on-premises data centers, while cloud-ready applications can run on the public cloud. Developing, testing, and adopting new technologies is more efficient and effective, enabling businesses to evolve quickly and stay relevant. Conclusion Globally, the IT infrastructure landscape is undergoing unprecedented transformation due to digitalization. Organizations must constantly find ways to do more with less by increasing efficiencies and reducing IT complexity. Many face challenges modernizing their legacy IT infrastructure, but an HCI-based hybrid cloud offers a way out. This setup provides the flexibility and economics of the cloud without sacrificing performance, availability, and reliability. This approach allows businesses to scale quickly and cost-effectively without the need to keep adding hardware, thus reducing IT complexity. By creating a unified resource pool for various applications, these solutions facilitate on-demand capacity expansion and centralized management. This results in lower operating expenses and quicker time to market, effectively addressing the challenges posed by legacy IT systems.   Contact Us for Business Inquiry

What is Cloud Repatriation?

The Cloud Repatriation Trend in 2023 Browse the pages of most IT tech news websites and chances are you will come across stories of enterprise organizations migrating en masse to the public cloud as part of their cloud adoption strategy. But does the premise of hosting on the public cloud, a service dominated by cloud hyperscalers like AWS, Azure, and GCP, still ring true? By and large, yes. Organizations of all sizes still rely on public cloud infrastructure for application and data hosting to support their mission-critical workloads. However, the idea of going all-in on a public-cloud-only strategy and abandoning the on-premises data center and/or colocation services is slowing down. Organizations now realize the benefits of a hybrid cloud approach, giving rise to more cloud repatriation initiatives. In this article, we will discuss and address the areas relating to the cloud repatriation trend. What is Cloud Repatriation? Cloud repatriation is the process of moving data, applications, or workloads from a public cloud environment back to an on-premises infrastructure. It also refers to transferring IT resources from a public cloud environment located outside the country of operations back to a local data center, whether on-premises, a local public cloud, or a colocation facility. Drivers of Cloud Repatriation Cloud repatriation has garnered significant attention in recent years. There are several key reasons why organizations are moving workloads back from hyperscaler cloud-based environments to on-premises or local cloud infrastructure. Let’s explore a few of them. Cost Savings: One of the most compelling reasons for repatriating workloads is the high cost of hyperscaler clouds. Organizations often encounter unexpected financial pitfalls, such as high data transfer (ingress/egress) fees that result in significant "bill shock". In many cases, migrating and hosting the wrong workloads in inappropriate configurations can be more costly in public clouds than on-premises. As enterprises scale, many have reported that it becomes increasingly cost-effective to manage their workloads on-premises, allowing for predictable costs and the prevention of unforeseen expenses like data transfer fees. Data Security & Sovereignty Requirements: Concerns about data sovereignty, combined with stringent regulatory measures by governments, demand a more controlled environment for hosting and storing customer data. The preference often leans towards in-country hosting to meet compliance and security measures. Better Performance: Public cloud services, while providing extensive geographic reach, can sometimes introduce performance issues. Latency can negatively impact user experience, especially for edge computing use cases that demand real-time processing. The close proximity of a local data center effectively addresses this issue. Resource Optimization: Repatriation isn't just a reactionary move; it can also be strategic. Companies are continuously looking to optimize IT resources, ensuring that workloads are aptly distributed across various environments and geographies. Skill Shortage: The diverse nature of hyperscaler cloud platforms demands a specific skill set, and a scarcity of talent to manage these platforms can lead organizations to reconsider their cloud-first approach. Vendor Lock-in Avoidance: Vendor lock-in is the situation where companies become overly reliant on a single cloud provider's infrastructure and services. This can prompt businesses to reassess and, if necessary, repatriate for long-term flexibility. Cloud Repatriation Examples Dropbox In 2015, Dropbox, a cloud-based file storage and synchronization service, undertook a massive migration from AWS to its own private cloud infrastructure called "Magic Pocket." The primary drivers for this move included cost savings, performance optimization, and greater control over hardware and network configurations. As a company storing exabytes of data for over 500 million users, Dropbox faced escalating costs on AWS. By transitioning to a private cloud, Dropbox reduced operational expenses while tailoring its system for better performance and security. The migration itself was executed over two years, involving meticulous planning to move petabytes of data without disrupting user experience. Financial statements revealed that the move had saved Dropbox almost $75 million in operational expenses over the first two years. The result was a more cost-effective, scalable, and high-performing storage service, validating the company's strategic decision to move away from public cloud services. The Cloud Repatriation Strategy Cloud repatriation is a complex and time-consuming process that requires careful assessment, planning, and execution to avoid disruption to business operations and data loss. As such, organizations must critically evaluate the overall benefits and risks before making the critical decision to move away from the cloud. Drawing on successful use cases, the following are steps and best practices to consider as part of a cloud repatriation strategy: Developing and evaluating the business case: Organizations should rigorously evaluate the business case to determine the motivations, projected outcomes, and benefits before starting the repatriation process. This assessment should include an end-to-end review of the current cloud environment, encompassing aspects like performance, cost, operations, compliance, and other relevant factors. It’s also important to consider the loss of some public cloud benefits, such as scalability and elasticity. Creating a migration plan: Once a decision has been made, the next step is to formulate a detailed project plan that outlines the specific steps, timelines, resources, and budgets required to complete the entire migration process. The plan must specify the types of migration tools, network connectivity, data transfer costs, data backup and recovery options, and infrastructure requirements. It should also incorporate contingency measures to address any unexpected problems, issues, or delays. Choosing the right infrastructure: Determining the optimal infrastructure for repatriation is crucial. Options include on-premises data centers, private clouds, and local cloud providers. Criteria such as compliance, performance, security, and scalability should guide the infrastructure selection process. Executing a successful migration: The actual repatriation process involves migrating applications, data, and workloads from the existing public cloud environment to the new on-premises or local cloud environment. This process can span weeks, months, or even years, depending on the size and complexity of the “to be” landscape and environment. Crucially, organizations need to ensure that they have skilled personnel in place, whether in-house or a professional service provider, to manage and execute the migration. Validating and optimizing the new environment: After the completion of the migration, organizations need to test and optimize their new environment to ensure it meets current and future performance, security, and governance/compliance requirements. Additionally, they should establish processes for the ongoing management and monitoring of the new environment. Conclusion At the outset, the hyperscalers and public clouds projected significant IT cost reductions and elevated operations/performances. For many, the initial results of going all-in on the public clouds did reduce their capex (IT software & infrastructure) as data centers were collapsed and expensive legacy infrastructure was divested. However, recent surveys conducted on CSPs and data center colocation providers found that cloud repatriation is happening on a global scale, albeit to varying degrees depending on the type of organization and their landscapes. In several recent global IT surveys, it was noted that around 70-80% of organizations are repatriating at least some data from hyperscalers and public cloud due to a variety of concerns, as discussed above. Organizations must now seriously consider whether cloud repatriation is a viable strategy or explore other ways of achieving their objectives other than relying on hyperscaler/public clouds. Notably, they are now adopting a moderated “hybrid cloud” approach that combines on-premises infrastructure with certain workloads in the public cloud. Others are pursuing a private cloud, which offers some of the benefits of virtualized infrastructure in a single-tenant environment, either on-premises or in a colocated data center. Hence, the adoption and trend of cloud repatriation can vary widely depending on the specific needs and circumstances of each organization.   Contact Us for Business Inquiry

What is VSS Backup and What are its Advantages?

Solving Data Backup Challenges with VSS Backup Data is the lifeblood of any business, and protecting it from loss, corruption, or disaster is crucial for ensuring business continuity and competitiveness. However, traditional backup solutions like tape drives, external hard drives, and cloud storage often face challenges such as high cost, low efficiency, complex management, and inconsistent data quality. How can you overcome these challenges and achieve reliable and secure data protection for your data center and cloud computing? In this blog post, we will introduce Sangfor HCI 6.9.0, the latest version of our hyper-converged infrastructure product. It offers high performance, reliability, security, and easy operability for your data center and cloud computing needs. We will focus on the reliability features of Sangfor HCI 6.9.0, especially on its support for VSS backup, which was not available in previous versions. We will also provide several use cases in which Sangfor HCI 6.9.0 helps to protect your data. What is VSS Backup? VSS backup is a technology that allows you to create consistent snapshots of your data without interrupting your applications. VSS stands for Volume Shadow Copy Service or Volume Snapshot Service, which is a Windows service that coordinates the actions of applications, writers, requestors, and providers to create shadow copies of volumes or files at a specific point in time. Figure: Architecture diagram of Volume Shadow Copy Service (Source: Microsoft) VSS Service: A built-in feature in Windows that ensures the other VSS components can communicate with each other properly and work together. VSS Requester: This is the backup software that requests the creation, import, and deletion of shadow copies. The backup applications in Widows are the Windows Server Backup utility and the System Center Data Protection Manager. VSS Writer: This component ensures a consistent data set is available for backup. It is often included with applications like SQL Server and Exchange Server and with the OS for Windows components like Registry. VSS Provider: This component creates and maintains shadow copies. It can be software or hardware. The Windows operating system comes with a VSS provider that uses copy-on-write. The Advantages of VSS Backup VSS backup is important because it offers a more robust way to protect data from accidental loss, corruption, or disaster. You can use VSS backup to restore your data to the original location or move them to a new one. You can also use the backup files to perform data mining, disk-to-disk backups, as well as fast recovery. However, not all backup solutions support VSS backup. Some backup solutions only support file-level backup or block-level backup, which may cause data inconsistency or application errors when restoring the data. In general, VSS Backup offers several advantages over other backup solutions. Let’s explore these. Real-Time Backup vs Scheduled Backup: VSS captures and creates snapshots in real time while the system is online. In contrast, traditional backup methods often require scheduling backups during off-hours to minimize impact on system performance. Consistent State Backup vs Inconsistent Backup: Unlike basic file copy methods or simple disk cloning, VSS ensures that all files, even those open or in use, are backed up in a consistent state. Basic file copy methods often cannot backup files that are in use, leading to potential inconsistencies in the backup data. For example, if you backup a database file while it is being updated by an application, the backup file may contain incomplete or corrupted data that cannot be restored properly. Disk Space Efficiency vs Full Backups: VSS backups usually take up less disk space because they can be incremental or differential, storing only changes since the last backup. Traditional full backups, on the other hand, take a complete snapshot of all data, consuming more storage space. Easier Restoration vs Tape Backup: Restoring from VSS is often quicker and simpler than from tape backups. Tape backups usually require sequential reading, which takes longer, especially if the data you need is at the end of the tape. Application-Specific Backup vs General-Purpose Backup: While VSS can integrate with specific applications for more reliable backups, many traditional backup methods treat all files the same, regardless of whether they belong to a complex application like a database or are just simple text files. Multiple Backup Sources vs Single Backup Source: VSS allows for both local and network-based backup, offering more flexibility. Some older backup technologies might only support local backups or might require additional hardware or software to support network-based backups. VVS Backup in Sangfor HCI Sangfor HCI 6.9.0 supports VSS backup for both Windows virtual machines (support for Linux VMs is on the way), which means you can create consistent snapshots of your VMs without affecting their normal operation. You can also use Sangfor HCI 6.9.0 to back up your VMs to local storage, remote storage, or cloud storage, and restore them quickly and easily when needed. Other Reliability Features of Sangfor HCI 6.9.0 In addition to VSS backup, Sangfor HCI 6.9.0 offers other reliability features that enhance your data protection and availability. These include: Network health check: This feature detects network latency and packet loss at the data link layer and promptly alerts the administrator of any potential problems. RAID controller health check: This feature isolates and repairs RAID controller failures to prevent any impact on the cluster’s reliability and performance. Network attack protection: Sangfor HCI provides a built-in Cloud Security Center for administrators to configure network attack protection policies for the virtual network, providing seven-layer protection for cloud applications. Virtual patch protection: The cloud security center also provides an intrusion prevention system (IPS) to protect VMs and block vulnerability attack traffic. Cross-cluster live migration: This feature allows you to migrate VMs from different versions of Sangfor HCI clusters without downtime or data loss. iSCSI HA for a two-node cluster with witness deployment: A physical terminal is used as a witness node to prevent cluster split-brain and improve reliability for small-scale scenarios. These features make Sangfor HCI 6.9.0 a reliable and secure solution for your business needs. What are the Use Cases of Sangfor HCI 6.9.0? Sangfor HCI 6.9.0 caters to a wide range of digital transformation use cases across industries, including data center consolidation, mission-critical application hosting, hybrid cloud, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), remote office/branch office (ROBO), and disaster recovery (DR). Conclusion Sangfor HCI 6.9.0 is by far the most reliable version to date, offering features like VSS snapshot and backup, cross-cluster live migration between different versions, as well as health checks for the network and RAID controller. These enhancements improve both the reliability and availability of businesses using Sangfor HCI.
