Planning for the future
Hybrid clouds represent an important step in the transition of IT from technology manager to solution provider. Deploying hybrid cloud solutions will help companies become comfortable with public cloud security, operations, and financial management.
Over the next coming years companies will seek to offload as much of their technology stack as possible to the public cloud, driven not only by the economic benefits and shared resources, but also the freedom to choose among multiple vendors on their terms.
Cloud-dependent technologies, such as Internet of Things (IoT), real-time analytics and collaboration, will continue to evolve the end-customer relationship, which in turn will require public cloud solutions to meet scale and time-to-market-challenges.
As private data centers give way to the public cloud, public cloud itself will transform from a regional to a local focus. Deploying hybrid clouds is the next step beyond private clouds in the evolution of cloud computing.
Now is the time to start plotting the path to the future and to move up the cloud learning curve. Let’s get started with the ‘Hybrid Evolution’
