April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but experts are predicting clouds in the forecast. Except these clouds have a different meaning and according to analyst firm, IDC, “public cloud services adoption is growing 30 percent.” However, entrusting the public cloud has ongoing concerns about reliability and security. With major public cloud outages running rampant recently, affecting Amazon Web Services, the Sony Playstation Network and Yahoo Mail, has emphasized the need for enterprises, especially SMBs, to take more control of their data and cloud infrastructures.
The best way to lower risk is to diversify and consider a more reliable cloud infrastructure, such as a private cloud solution, that offers cloud management automation, unified threat management, and advanced hardware engineering. To help companies accelerate private cloud adoption and also provide a safer and more reliable alternative to the public cloud, AMAX introduced the AMAX CloudMax solution that is a ready-to-deploy and secure total private cloud appliance solution, allowing enterprises to focus on delivering their core business value rather than on worrying about the next public cloud outage.
