Very few cloud computing companies offer a comprehensive platform, but by choosing a cloud partner that can meet your specific goals—and those of your customers—you can quickly bring to market cloud solutions that will grow and evolve alongside the needs of your own business and customers. As you look to forge a partnership to develop your cloud computing business, Appcore® provides the advanced hardware, software and business services required for a successful launch and ongoing relationship.
Take a look at how Appcore can help you deliver the business of cloud computing®:
- Roll-in-ready platform that encompasses everything required—hardware, software and business services
This comprehensive approach is imperative to ensuring a smooth and fast implementation to get your cloud business running quickly. Appcore brings optimized hardware, automation software and business service to the cloud to provide a faster time to market and seamless rollout experience to help you maximize the revenue potential of the cloud.
- Emphasize automation
Choosing a platform that enables dynamic auto-provisioning can significantly reduce the burden and cost of manual provisioning without sacrificing performance. Business customers are demanding the ability to scale resources on demand to control costs and eliminate waste. Companies that can provide automation of compute resources based on real time demand can offer their customers a much better value, while maximizing the efficient use of their own resources.
- Flexible, reliable solution that meet both your own and end-user specifications
SLAs, uptime, security and failover assurance is obviously critical, but what about the type of operating systems, user interface and support levels required? Appcore offers compatible technology to avoid delays in implementation and ensures that both you and your customers’ expectations for management tools and support interactions are met.
- Converged platform with built-in business services
The hardware and software platforms are a given as part of any cloud deployment. What about the tools to actually sell the service, collect revenue and run the business side of the cloud? Many cloud solution providers leave you to figure out the rest on your own. Appcore provides the tools required to market, operate and monetize your cloud; which includes promotional support, usage reporting, business intelligence and the ability to automatically track customer resource consumption and billing.
- Single-vendor relationship
While there are many cloud solution providers, some are merely configurators, pulling together a cache of multiple systems to deliver a “complete solution.” But what happens when something goes wrong? You may find yourself working through a long list of vendors to get to the resolution. Very few cloud providers offer a comprehensive platform that integrates the hardware, operating systems, software, applications and management tools in a single vendor offering. Appcore helps save you months in deployment and implementation and also dramatically speeds troubleshooting when an issue does arise.
While it is possible to build your own cloud platform this approach could take months, if not years, resulting in valuable resources wasted in capitalizing on the current demand for and growth in cloud services. It makes more sense to partner with a cloud solution provider from an economic and speed-to-market perspective.
