|Three use cases of agile cloud solutions|
Imagine a truck standing at a freight forwarder’s loading dock catches fire, and the fire spreads to the office building. The server that runs the route planning system and prints bills of lading is destroyed. Thanks to an appliance, the company’s IT and business data are secured in the cloud. In the event of emergency, the IT is restored virtually and almost without interruption, allowing the company to continue operations.
Some events generate such a great deal of attention that even the capacities of the huge servers employed by a well-known media company are unable to cope with the flood of users trying to access their systems. The company therefore started looking for a more flexible cloud solution which would cover the need for both substantial processing power and a high level of memory capacity at the same time.
A small and recently founded software company is looking for simple and cost-effective ways to be able to quickly launch future-oriented web applications on the market. Such a cloud solution in the form of a Platform as a Service (PaaS) should not only focus on confidential data storage, but must also be preferably based on open-source software, and the developers must provide a familiar environment.
