The Integrated On-premises and Multi-cloud Development Story

Many CIOs and CTOs continue to see value in keeping certain workloads on-premises or in a third-party colocation facility. Conjointly, enterprises are running business applications in the cloud, often running different workloads in different clouds. But the effort to continually evaluate, implement, and fine-tune hybrid cloud environments has become both an expensive and exhaustive task.

Managing hybrid cloud or multi cloud platforms can become so disruptive that IT may lose focus from customers, neglecting key business objectives and get caught up in laborious efforts of configuring applications, patching vulnerabilities, platform operations etc. The operation also requires a wide array of tools, products, cloud architectures and solutions both cloud-native and third-party, which would be cost-heavy due to licensing and maintenance.

However, only

42% regularly optimize cloud spending

41% maintain an approved service catalog

37% enforce capacity limits or expirations

Enter Google Anthos, a transparent platform that enables seamless operations across systems, vendors and allows enterprises to monitor multiple environments from a single place.

Cloud4C - GCP Anthos Delivery Journey

IT Modernization efforts that help enterprises accelerate software-driven business transformation rely on adapting cloud-native tools, architectures, technologies and solutions. However, with ERP and non-ERP workloads spread across on-prem data centers and multi cloud environments, digital transformation can become a daunting task.

At Cloud4C, we help you futurize your entire hybrid infrastructure and make sure you keep up with technologies such as Hyperautomation, Robotic Process Automation, microservices architectures and cloud-hosted container platforms so you can serve your customers better. Our factory approach follows five easy steps to enhance your business agility.

Step 1: Review

Assessment of the application portfolio and valuation of current legacy systems of your enterprise is established as the first step of reviewing.

Step 2: Formulate

A modernization strategy is formulated for identified workloads based on the thorough review.

Step 3: Develop

Development of business case, justification, and benefits analysis is carried out after an encompassing discussion with your team.

Step 4: Execute

As a part of this step, we execute POC Setup, Installation of GKE, Perform Code Conversion, Code Refactoring and Code Remediation.

Step 5: Manage

Then, we streamline operations post the transition and initiate migration if necessary.

Enterprise Benefits with Google Cloud Anthos

Be it banking or financial sector, retail or the public sector, the reasons for workloads to be spread across public cloud, on-premises or a multi cloud setup are varied- data residency laws, low latency apps etc. However, as enterprises, you are exposed to various risks and vulnerabilities and end up losing out on huge IT investments as a result and here are things that are reasons for concern in hybrid setups.

Security & Data Regulations

Data has to be agile. It needs to move seamlessly from different regions, environments and applications. If data is locked up and unavailable, it is as good as a deadweight, especially in hybrid setups. With Google Cloud Anthos, policies can be enforced across heterogeneous environments of multi cloud and on-prem data centers, hence becoming a single auditable source of truth. Since Anthos is built on the power of Google Kubernetes Engine policies, permissions and security can be customized as well.

The complexity and insufficient visibility of hybrid setups draws the undivided attention of IT resources causing less focus on customer issues and more time spent on infrastructure and issues that don’t matter to the customer.

Google Cloud Anthos provides administrators a single place to monitor and manage Kubernetes workloads while giving them useful information in order to optimize, automate, set policies etc. Man hours can now be reduced in management, enforcement, discovery and communication, thereby improving the productivity of your resources.

The potential of innovating cannot be hindered due to legacy and packaged applications. Be it a monolith, web or a cloud application, restrictions to automate and innovate can lead to the risk of falling behind.

Google Cloud Anthos gives you the flexibility and power to develop in one place and deploy in many, enhancing employee productivity by a huge number.
