Use Cases for FlexCloud Servers

Development Environments:

FlexCloud Servers provide a flexible, high-bandwidth solution to support multiple concurrent development efforts or projects that require different environment configurations be available to the development team simultaneously. A development environment deployed with FlexCloud Servers provides an agile, adaptable, scalable environment that is low cost to spin up and maintain.

With FlexCloud Server Solutions you have an IT infrastructure to support multiple concurrent development efforts and multiple configurations—instead of alternatively investing in an environment to support each project individually. This scalability and flexibility helps decrease the length of the development cycle and provides better resource availability at a much lower cost.

Test Environments:

The FlexCloud Server environment allows for test groups to create a full-scale, temporary test environment to mirror a Cloud production environment, and then discard those resources once testing is completed. This provides a cost-effective method of providing true-to-life testing and evaluation for applications on an on-demand basis.

FlexCloud Servers allow an organization to rapidly procure the IT resources required to meet the project's need and use those resources for the duration of the project. Resources are discarded at the conclusion of the project without the need to acquire and maintain the costly IT resources permanently.

Traffic Surges & Cloud Bursting:

Surges in application use can be defined as application demand above the baseline levels of the business activity. Periodic surges due to unforeseen or seasonal requirements in application usage are caused by predictable increases in business activity, or unexpected temporary increases.

FlexCloud Servers can be used to addresss periodic surges, whether predicted or not, by dynamically increasing resources as necessary, and decreasing when they are no longer needed. FlexCloud Servers remove the need to acquire IT infrastructure that sits idle or is underutilized.

By migrating certain applications or services to a Cloud environment, organizations maintain a small persistent footprint and can deploy on-demand resources as required. This allows organizations to avoid idle server costs while also accommodating traffic surges.

Short Duration Projects:

FlexCloud Servers allow organization to rapidly procure the IT resources required to meet their  needs for the short duration projects. These resources are then released or discarded at the conclusion of the project without the need to acquire and maintain the costly IT resources permanently.
