Flytoget AS, a publicly owned transportation company in Norway, operates the airport express train between Oslo Airport and the city center. Each year, the company transports millions of passengers on its trains. To succeed in an increasingly competitive landscape, Flytoget decided to modernize its IT infrastructure with a cloud-based approach. Flytoget deployed Red Hat JBoss Fuse with 3scale API Management Platform to create a highly adaptable and reliable foundation for its modernization efforts. As a result, the company has achieved intelligent, integrated transportation services that will help it retain its market-leading role.
As more hardware, devices, apps, and tools are deployed to support growth, the infrastructure becomes increasingly difficult to integrate, manage and support. The concept of converged infrastructure was seen as the answer to this problem. However, when bringing together disparate components not deeply integrated or designed to work together, this "solution" sapped efficiency and added more complexity. Plus, there was no convenient public cloud option. Explore how Oracle Engineered Systems are designed to overcome the limitations of traditional converged infrastructure solutions.
This 11-page whitepaper discusses the agility needs of today’s business, how IT is choosing a hybrid cloud approach to meet demand, and how hybrid cloud brings more agility but also increases management complexity in an environment that encompasses traditional architectures, private clouds, and public clouds. The paper outlines the role of a cloud management platform with vRealize® Suite for enabling faster and secure provisioning with monitoring and policy-driven controls. It highlights the 3 use cases (Intelligent Ops, Automated IT to Iaas, DevOps-Ready IT), the need for Day 1 and Day 2 capabilities, and how vRealize Suite helps automate IT.
In order to keep pace with the business and developer demands inherent with the digital era, enterprise IT has picked up speed and scale by embracing the cloud. As a result of this mix of private on-premises clouds, hosted private clouds, and public cloud services, the modern data center has become a more complex and murky environment to manage. In the VMware eBook “How to Gain Visibility Across Your Multi-Cloud Environment,” we explore the power of the enterprise-ready cloud management platform (CMP) as a single solution for automating the delivery of IT resources, and managing those resources throughout their lifecycle across private and public clouds. Learn how you’ll gain the agility for accelerating IT delivery, the efficiency to improve OpEx and CapEx, the flexibility to leverage private or public cloud resources, and the level of control necessary to meet governance and security requirements.
From private, public, and hybrid clouds to traditional and modern application architectures, today’s modern data center is complex. To effectively manage the evolving topology, IT needs a unified approach to management, with intelligent, cost-effective tools – which is just what an enterprise-ready cloud management platform (CMP) provides. CMP enables IT teams to automate provisioning as well as manage applications throughout their lifecycle with a single platform.
Read this eGuide to learn more about how to avoid chaos in the data center with a unified cloud management platform.
Managing a mix of private, public, and hybrid cloud environments is a challenge for even the most robust IT departments. An enterprise-grade cloud management platform (CMP) puts you back in charge. It allows you to manage heterogeneous multi-cloud environments as one, enabling rapid delivery of infrastructure and applications with no loss of control.
This paper reviews the top three ways a cloud management platform from VMware can help you manage your environment more efficiently.
Research from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has evidenced strong and growing interest in cloud deployment models. While public cloud has gotten the earliest attention, stronger adoption is happening within private and hybrid models. In the EMA April 2014 report “Managing Networks in the Age of Cloud, SDN, and Big Data Network Management Megatrends 2014,” over 50% of respondents reported public/hybrid cloud initiatives were driving network management priorities. Since 2012, cloud projects have moved from early adopter status to mainstream business initiatives, and their impact on network management grew from 36% in 2012 to over 50% in 2014.

Analytics is moving to the cloud. That may be exciting news for many IT leaders, but some are still unclear about what the cloud really means. Others are overwhelmed by the wealth of new service options and cloud-based deployment models. In the following pages, you’ll find practical guidance to help determine the right solution for moving your business forward.
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies:
Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud")
Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.
According to this global survey, in three years more than half of all IT services will be delivered via private, public and hybrid clouds. This study highlights the challenges faced by IT organizations as they move into a new role as “cloud brokers” and how a common data platform can help enable seamless data management across multiple clouds.
