Virtualization provides a foundation for moving to the cloud and we are squarely focused on bringing these types of capabilities to our customer base
Marietta, GA (Vocus) October 17, 2010
Abacus Solutions, an IT infrastructure solutions provider, was a featured partner at Red Hat's Road Tour event earlier this month in Atlanta, Georgia. The Road Tour allows IT professionals to gain valuable insight and best practices in virtualization solutions and cloud computing. The Red Hat Road Tour is a national, multi-city tour which features key discussions on how customers can unlock the value of cloud computing today.
The Red Hat Road Tour is a complimentary half-day seminar focusing on cloud computing, virtualization, platform, middleware and the future of IT. Participants gain insights into the best practices for virtualization and private cloud computing from Red Hat product experts, roundtable discussions, and real-world perspectives. Customers and partners will also learn how to build a cloud computing environment and prepare for the future, while leveraging the investments already made.
As a Red Hat Advanced Business Partner, Abacus Solutions has the expertise to deliver and integrate Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization solutions into customers' existing infrastructure in order to prepare them to take advantage of cloud computing when their systems require flexibility and scale.
“Virtualization provides a foundation for moving to the cloud and we are squarely focused on bringing these types of capabilities to our customer base,” said Patrick Hiller, CEO of Abacus Solutions. “There is no doubt that cloud computing is where the IT industry is headed and we intend to help our customers take full advantage of its potential.”
With projections indicating that over $44 billion dollars will be spent on cloud computing annually within the next few years, moving to the cloud is proving to be far more than a trend. According to information shared at the Red Hat Road Tour in Atlanta, 85% of computing capacity is idle. Deploying into cloud environments will allow applications to run more efficiently on existing server capacity and without having to add more hardware to the data center.
“The information and industry perspectives presented at the Red Hat Road Tour were very valuable to our team. Red Hat's experts covered how virtualization provides the foundation for cloud computing but also expands IT capabilities while simultaneously reducing costs, which is something that our customers are looking to leverage,” said Hiller. “Additionally, it was nice to have real-world examples of cloud deployments and the seminar concluded with a current Red Hat customer explaining how they leverage Red Hat solutions to simplify the data center and increase its capabilities.”
