An updated infrastructure can help firms gain a competitive advantage by speeding up the development and deployment of applications.
IT teams invest a lot of effort establishing cloud systems and managing data centers but an efficient IT infrastructure should eventually meet user expectations.
Today’s businesses demand a flexible, adaptable, and scalable infrastructure. Those qualities enable an organization to quickly adapt to changing conditions.
Tom Koppelman, VP, Networking and Security (Sales) at VMware shares his insights below on how corporations are modernizing their infrastructures to become more dynamic.
To Provide the best User Experience, a Consistent Infrastructure is a Must
“It’s all about the app experience, whether it is internal users or external customers, customers today demand highly flexible and consistent infrastructures, whether they’re deploying apps within their company’s data center or on a public cloud,” said Koppelman.
Consistency is the ultimate aim, he further explained. In order to improve user experience, one needs a robust architecture that allows users to work from anywhere. A private data center and moving to the cloud are no longer exclusive options.
Security Is a Priority When Developing a Dynamic Infrastructure
Koppelman outlines the primary considerations that firms should make while modernizing their IT infrastructures to make them more dynamic. “When I spoke with each CIO, the first priority was security, and essentially operationalizing the notion of zero trust.”
Koppelman also prioritizes providing a uniform experience for all workers, regardless of their location. That is unquestionably an important core feature, enabling work from wherever, making it a seamless experience for its consumers, whether they’re working from home or otherwise.
Finally, he emphasized the critical nature of accelerating application development and deployment. He observed the need to expedite application deployments in a multi-cloud world and move away from these conventional designs that have slowed that down, and instead deploy software-based architectures that are distributed and secure and enable application deployments to be accelerated.
Complexity and Vulnerability Can Put Modernization of Infrastructure at Risk
Upgrading your infrastructure to make it more responsive is a task fraught with difficulties. Reducing complexity “does not always require forklifting everything out and replacing it with something new,” he explained. “However, there are methods to incorporate programmability, visibility, and intelligence into designs to hasten the process of complexity reduction.”
“Number two,” Koppelman concluded, “address vulnerability.” “Technologies included in distributed software are extremely adaptable when it comes to addressing vulnerabilities.”
Koppelman suggested technologies that provide visibility into the performance of your apps running on your infrastructure.
“Make an effort to ensure uniformity throughout the architecture you’re installing, this does not imply that all hardware components must be identical, but there are software capabilities that can be offered that can help abstract away the complexity of the hardware and overlay it on top with a more uniform software layer.”
DevOps Can Increase Productivity and Security
DevOps is rapidly growing and gaining traction across a broad variety of businesses. Experts list out some of the benefits of DevOps below.
DevOps plays a critical role in increasing the efficiency and repeatability of the development and deployment processes, minimizing mistakes and accelerating speed to market. Consider regularly checking in code: if it is compiled, inspected for security, deployed, and if regression tests are run in real time.
DevOps and security – DevOps creates an atmosphere conducive to enhancing security measures such as automation, continuous testing, and improved feedback loops. It enables the integration of security as a component of DevOps operations.
DevOps and site reliability engineering (SRE) are in a constant state of evolution and maturation. Businesses are constantly making strategic changes, exposing their apps to vulnerabilities and cyber-attacks. This can be safeguarded with the adoption of DevSecOps.
