Back to the Future, with Nutanix

Derby City Council moves workloads back from public cloud to Nutanix private cloud – You can trust Datanet with your Nutanix Hosting

Derby City Council

“What we needed was a more flexible, hybrid, solution leveraging public cloud where appropriate, with the ability to also manage legacy workloads on our reinvigorated, on-premise infrastructure – Project and Change Manager, Derby City Council”

Although often seen as an enabler of digital transformation, the public cloud doesn’t represent a one size fits all solution, as Derby City Council discovered mid-way through a migration to the public cloud. Initially seen as a way of eliminating its on-premise datacentre and associated costs, the Council’s reliance on a multitude of legacy applications meant having to go well over budget to meet required service levels in the public cloud. Technical issues also hindered the move and combined with rapid price escalation, made wholesale migration to the public cloud unaffordable. As a result, the Derby City team needed to both scale back on their public cloud deployment and at the same time, build a new on-premise infrastructure to repatriate workloads as part of a more conservative hybrid approach.
