Migrating to Hybrid Cloud
Before any major IT decision, it’s prudent to start with a list of requirements—a roadmap for the company to address future growth initiatives and an understanding of end users and their needs. The next steps involve designing the cloud environment from infrastructure to connectivity and the locations of each. Finally, hybrid cloud installations need to be managed to ensure the end product ultimately meets the needs of the organization at large.
What Is Hybrid Cloud
Hybrid cloud carries multiple meanings but most often refers to infrastructure and applications that span a private cloud environment, public cloud environment and on-premises or data center environment.
Key Benefits of Hybrid Cloud
- Flexibility to optimize the environment for each application and services
- Ability to deliver services based on end-user requirements
- Cost efficiencies by utilizing lower-cost public cloud services where applicable
- Prevention of hardware obsolescence
