What is Cloud Infrastructure?
The term "cloud infrastructure" refers both to the hardware that enables cloud computing and to the virtualized computing resources that it hosts.
Cloud Infrastructure Definition
"Cloud infrastructure" consists of both hardware–such as servers, networking components and storage–and software, such as hypervisors (which allow virtualization), management tools and security. Physical servers host "virtual machines," which can be managed via business-friendly, browser-based interfaces. Many businesses use cloud infrastructure to build private or hybrid clouds that function in much the same way as popular public cloud solutions.
Why Cloud Infrastructure?
Cloud infrastructure can be managed much more efficiently than simple physical infrastructure, giving DevOps teams the ability to deploy apps quickly and manage workloads programmatically. Cloud infrastructure is flexible and scalable, making it ideal for enterprise computing.
Cloud infrastructure systems, such as HPE’s CloudSystem, feature fully integrated hardware and software that can be integrated with your current IT to create a single management platform for multiple clouds.
