But it’s become difficult to understand what precisely someone means when they say “cloud.” The National Institute of Standards and Technology defines cloud computing as a “model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g. networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.”

Having worked with Rackspace previously, it had confidence in Rackspace’s expertise in IT transformation, and decided to take up its managed public cloud services for Microsoft Azure, and professional services for cloud migration, performance and scalability. Yet, this resulted in greater gained cost-savings and increased agility, as Noble moved its massive workloads to the Azure cloud with round-the-clock expertise from Rackspace. This proved to be a wise choice. To adapt to Noble Group’s fast changing business model, Rackspace needed to migrate 60 percent of its resources from on-premises infrastructure to Azure, following eight months of planning. At the end of the cloud migration, Noble Group successfully reduced the 2,000 servers from its infrastructure to just 200 servers.

Performance testing and benchmarking of cloud computing platforms is a complex task, compounded by the differences between providers and the use cases of cloud computing users. IaaS services are utilized by a large variety of industries and, performance metrics cannot be understood by simply representing cloud performance with a single value. When selecting a cloud computing provider, IT professionals consider many factors: compatibility, performance, cost, security and more. Performance is a key factor that drives many others including cost. In many cases, 3 primary bottlenecks affect server performance: central processing unit (CPU) performance, disk performance, and internal network performance.

IT transformation is more than a one-time migration of applications to the cloud, because the cloud isn’t a destination in itself. Successful migration is the start of an ongoing process of evolving your applications to take advantage of new native capabilities, as they become available on your chosen cloud platform. This e-book illustrates the iterative process of cloud adoption by following the IT transformation journey of a fictitious company, Mercurial Footwear, in its adoption of Microsoft Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The various stages of this transformation — from a simple lift-and-shift to the cloud to leveraging cutting-edge technologies like containers and serverless computing — are typical of the process that Rackspace helps its customers to navigate through. With step-by-step explanations, the e-book will provide you with insights into the way cloud architecture evolves, to help you to better take advantage of the Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) features most re
