The Best of Both Clouds
Hybrid cloud carries multiple meanings but most often refers to infrastructure and applications that span a private cloud environment, public cloud service and on-premises and/or data center environment. Through a hybrid cloud environment, IT gains the flexibility and scalability to move some applications off-site while safeguarding core technologies and processes locally.
Designing a hybrid cloud environment takes into account many factors spanning end user requirements, vendors, connectivity options and more. Before any major IT decision, especially one as sophisticated as migrating to the cloud, it’s prudent to start with a list of requirements—a road map for the company to address future growth initiatives backed by an understanding of end users and their needs.
