Eucalyptus clouds help improve software development and testing efficiency as follows:
- Developers and testers can now self-provision their own infrastructure and only use what is needed.
- Compute and storage resource provisioning time is reduced from months to minutes.
- Internal resources are utilized at a much higher rate, further improving ROI.
- The overall IT workload is reduced, yet organizational policies are still enforced.
- Faster development and testing speeds the delivery of high quality software.
- Infrastructure operating and capital expenditures are optimized across the entire organization
Due the the massive scalability, elasticity, and flexibility of Eucalyptus clouds, they deliver capabilities to support the largest needs represented by High Performance Computing (HPC), Big Data, and Analytics.
Eucalyptus clouds offer distinct business advantages in these scenarios:
- Architects and designers are freed from needing to plan exact resource distribution patterns, which saves time and money.
- High performance, scaled parallel processes can complete more rapidly without dedicating resources when they're not needed.
- Hybrid clouds can be deployed to handle demanding tasks that exceed the resources available in the on-premise cloud.
- Service providers can introduce more accurate and effective pricing models.
- Eucalyptus clouds make it possible to design new and more innovative applications, with increased capacities and agility.
In our next post we'll look at use cases around Cloud Bursting and BC/DR, Storage as a Service, and Remote Desktop Hosting.
