Unified Cloud Platform

Technology Overview

The world for businesses applications is, if not already, dominated by cloud providers. The big three are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft’s Azure and Google Cloud, and whilst AWS are the leaders, the other two are committed to get a bigger share. However, it’s not uncommon for a company to have applications from two or three providers, such as a customised app in AWS, a database in Azure and mobile apps on Google. The Unified Cloud Platform can manage different public cloud platforms from one simple interface and manage the clouds from a single console. Users get much larger number of data centers to select to run their IT infrastructure and workload.

In addition, the cloud platform allows a company to move away from capital expenditure (CAPEX) to 100% operational expenditure (OPEX). Clear benefits come from a unified view of all the cloud applications, greater security from hacker attack, and setting up disaster recovery (DR) systems between platforms. The last point is essential for companies worried about data sovereignty, compliance and regulations.

Market Trends and Opportunities

Gartner forecasts a growth of 16% in public cloud services in 2016 with a revenue of US$204 billion dollars. Total spending on public cloud services is forecast to reach US$367 billion through 2020. The total IT expenditure was US$3 trillion, as such the cloud services market is less than 8% and is going to grow for many years.
