In the past 20 years, the cloud-based computing model has completely changed the way that enterprise organizations manage their information technology systems and most resources. Prior to the introduction of cloud platforms, an organization that wanted to develop IT capabilities and more computing power had to establish its own on-premise IT infrastructure.
That meant leasing a data center, funding the up-front capital costs of new equipment and developing in-house capabilities, including staffing, to develop and maintain applications. For many small and medium-sized companies, this massive technical and financial requirement was cost-prohibitive.
Cloud computing gives organizations the ability to access essential data storage and computing capabilities on an as-needed basis and with a reduced up-front cost. Now, instead of setting up their own on-premise IT infrastructure, companies can pay to rent cloud resources, virtual machines, and related capabilities and components from a third-party cloud service provider such as AWS. AVIO will help you guide and manage your cloud strategy so you can make the most of AWS, which already supports 2,653,287 companies, including government agencies and educational institutions.
To host services and applications in the cloud, you need cloud infrastructure. Cloud infrastructure refers to the components needed for cloud computing. This includes hardware, virtualized resources, virtualization storage, and network resources. You can view cloud infrastructure as the tools needed to build a cloud. Cloud infrastructure includes a hardware abstraction layer that enables the virtualization of resources and helps to drive down costs through economies of scale.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is cloud computing that provides virtualized resources over the internet. In an IaaS model, a cloud provider hosts the infrastructure components traditionally present in brick-and-mortar data centers. These include servers, storage and networking hardware, as well as the virtualization or hypervisor layer.
Cloud storage is a cloud computing model that stores data on the internet via a provider that manages and operates data Storage as a Service (SaaS). It’s delivered on demand with just-in-time capacity and costs, and eliminates buying and managing your own data storage infrastructure. This gives you agility, global scale and durability, and anytime, anywhere data access.
Cloud load balancing is the method of splitting workloads and computing properties in cloud computing. This means you can manage workload demands or application demands by distributing resources among computers, networks or servers. By spreading the load, it reduces the risk of your applications becoming overburdened, slow, or nonfunctional.
CloudHub is the platform as a service (PaaS) component of MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™, a global, fully-managed, multi-tenanted, secure, and highly available platform for APIs and integrations.
With CloudHub, you get:
Utilizing AVIO’s in-house developed Application Reporting and Monitoring Service (ARMS) in conjunction with MuleSoft CloudHub means our customers can focus on delivering new APIs and integrations that drive business value, instead of focusing on ensuring development and production systems are operating efficiently.
