Critical Considerations for Implementing a Hybrid Cloud

Here are three important factors to consider for using hybrid cloud to transform your data center.

Hybrid Cloud for the Enterprise

Learn the benefits of a hybrid cloud strategy for the enterprise.

Get the Best of Private and Public Cloud

Adopting a hybrid cloud strategy maximizes technology for enterprise business growth, because IT can leverage existing cloud expertise and economies in conjunction with legacy investments. With a combined on- and off-premises approach to cloud services, you can control costs, increase security, and improve performance. As much as 30–40 percent of traditional IT spending can shift to emerging technology initiatives that drive new revenue.

A hybrid cloud can also replace uncoordinated and shadow efforts. IT and DevOps can have a common business ground to share engineering, management, and workload optimization across every enterprise cloud.

Implementing Hybrid Cloud

Successfully blending private and public clouds requires integration at various levels including network, security, application, and dashboard management layers. More sophisticated hybrid deployments may also integrate cross-cloud management and orchestration, workload balancing, storage, networking, and other infrastructure.

The most successful deployments start with identifying a specific problem or pain point that needs remediation.

To launch and maintain a hybrid cloud, an enterprise needs: A high-performance, secure, cost-controlled platform ready for hybrid, and multi-cloud advancement; an IT staff with specialized skills; a robust partner ecosystem, that includes technology vendors and advisors, integration and deployment know-how, and support.

Alternative Cloud Strategies

Hybrid cloud combines advantages of private and public clouds. But there are plenty of business and technology rationales for deploying some workloads exclusively in a public or private cloud.

Private Cloud

Rely on a private cloud for dedicated, highly-available, and highly-secure workload performance when you need to maintain control, meet compliance, and retain business continuity.
