Moving to the Cloud is not without challenges: VCE

Cloud vendor finds success in supporting organisations in their move to the Cloud

The jump to the Cloud can be a daunting one for businesses, according to VCE (Virtual Computing Environment).

Asia-Pacific and Japan vice-president of the Cloud vendor, Paul Harapin, admits moving to the Cloud consists of “taking things out of your control”.

It may also consist of paying a premium to have the migration carried out as opposed doing it yourself.

“It’s overwhelming to small organisations with few resources, as well as huge organisations with lots of resources,” Harapin said.

Once businesses realised the time-to-market benefits of going with the Cloud, Harapin said the transition makes sense.

“The cost and complexity of trying to do everything themselves differently every time, and then try to support and keep that running, is simply overwhelming,” he said.

Full responsibility

Where VCE fits in the picture is that it takes the complexity and time off businesses’ hands and “effectively deliver a mainframe experience.”

Harapin adds the support extends to all of the areas organisations get in trouble with after the installation.

“We do all of the patching and testing, and take care of the things that cause outages and security risks,” he said,

This approach has enabled VCE to become one of the fastest growing companies, achieving the $1 billion milestone in three years.

The Cloud provider entered the Asia-Pacific market 18 months ago behind the US and Europe, and its customers include Japanese telco giant, Softbank.

“Regardless of size or vertical, businesses are affected by the challenges we are trying to address,” Harapin said.
