Aberdeen Publishes IT Infrastructure, Virtualization & Cloud, Networking & App Performance Research

Research Examines Virtual Private Clouds, HR Cloud Deployments, Virtualized Server Deployments, and Network Testing

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/13 -- Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of new research reports from its IT Infrastructure, Virtualization and Cloud, and Networking and Application Performance research practices.

"Virtual Private Clouds: Taking Private Clouds to a Higher Level," one of three reports authored this month by Dick Csaplar, Senior Research Analyst for the Aberdeen IT Infrastructure/ Virtualization and the Cloud research practice, shows that companies that use a virtual private cloud gain more of the advantages of cloud computing. A virtual private cloud has computing hardware hosted at a public cloud provider, but those products are isolated and dedicated to the private use of a single company. Users of virtual private clouds were able to decrease both their IT budget and IT headcounts at higher rates than organizations that just used the public cloud or a private cloud.

Next from Dick Csaplar, "On-Premise or in the Cloud -- How Best-in-Class IT Organizations Deploy their Human Resource Applications" shows that there are now five basic ways to deploy an application, either on-premise or in the Cloud. Leading organizations are more likely to deploy their human resource applications in the Cloud using a SaaS deployment model or in-house on a virtualized server. The study results indicate that all other survey respondents were more likely to have their human resource applications deployed in-house, on a physical server, deployed without the benefit of any server virtualization. Leading enterprises are clearly gaining the advantages of the Cloud and server virtualization when it comes to supporting their human resource applications.

Finally from Dick Csaplar, "Reference Architectures: Remove Some of the Challenges from Deploying Server Virtualization" deals with the issues Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs) have with implementing a complex technology such as server virtualization. SMBs often don't have the technical resources or the detailed knowledge of how to scope and implement server virtualization. Reference architectures are a set of products that are scoped, pre-validated, and configured to work together seamlessly right from the box. Reference architectures also generally offer a single tool to set up and manage the overall solution, and not just an interface to the individual components. This report deals specifically with the advantages of Reference Architectures that include servers, storage and networking products designed to support server virtualization.

"Breaking Down Network Testing Barriers," authored by Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analyst for the Aberdeen Networking and Application Performance research practice, looks at new testing technologies that lower the cost of, and complexity barriers to, performing network testing. Network testing products make it possible to conduct tests of network capacity and capability, and provide organizations the ability to anticipate network and application problems before they happen in real situations. This report analyzes how businesses that conduct network testing can achieve high levels of network uptime and performance.
