Why You Need Advanced Application Services in Your Private Cloud

An agile, scalable and efficient infrastructure

Published May 2017

Many organizations are considering the best methods for building and managing their private cloud deployments. According to the 2016 state of the cloud survey, private cloud adoption rose from 63 percent to 77 percent over the last year, with 31 percent of enterprises running more than 1,000 virtual machines in their private clouds.

Building out a dedicated infrastructure with the agility, scalability, and efficiency of a public cloud—while enjoying increased levels of control and security—can help enterprises boost agility and improve operational efficiency. However, while most private cloud networking services provide basic load balancing functionality, they lack important application delivery features, putting the performance, availability, and security of applications at risk.

As private clouds increasingly host mission-critical production applications, advanced application delivery services are becoming essential. End-to-end integration, orchestration, and automation of the needed application delivery networking and security services are also critical to improve application time-to-market and operational efficiency.
