The rate at which UK business is transitioning to the cloud is at an all-time high. Companies have their sights set on innovation, efficiency and lower OpEx, as delivered by cloud-based infrastructure. In fact, a report from Gartner predicts that by 2025, 55% of large enterprises will successfully implement an all-in cloud SaaS strategy.
However, when it comes to digital transformation a one-size-fits all approach doesn’t always work. There are many types of cloud solutions, offering businesses the opportunity to choose the service that best meets their needs.
Private cloud, in particular, is an especially attractive option for businesses that know what tools they need and want to maintain complete control of their infrastructures as they evolve. By virtualising their network and storage technology, the entire infrastructure can be managed in-house – including the deployment of new resources.
Therefore, a rapidly increasing number of businesses are achieving their goals by working with a software-defined datacentre (SDDC), like that offered by OVH. This method virtualises infrastructure setup and design, leaving the hardware behind, with a focus on flexibility, security and control.
Speed and flexibility
So, what are the key benefits of moving to an SDDC? An almost seamless transition to the cloud is a very important factor for business leaders when making the digital leap. As we all know, downtime is dangerous! Setting up new network infrastructures and new server environments may seem like a goliath task, and traditionally it was. But today SDDCs can be up and running in less than an hour, greatly limiting operational disruption.
The increased flexibility of the SDDC also delivers a powerful boost to staff’s speed and productivity, while helping to keep costs down.  In fact, the successful implementation of an SDDC can reduce operational expenditure (OpEx) by as much as 56%.
Businesses are reflecting many of the trends that are growing
