Cloud computing is a compelling way to deliver IT services — it’s cost-efficient, agile, scalable, and flexible. But for a lot of organizations, picking absolutely everything up and heading to the cloud isn’t feasible, or even desirable. Merging the best of cloud computing with traditional on-premises solutions — including those already doing their jobs well right now — makes a lot of sense in a complex and interdependent environment. This best-of-all-worlds approach is the hybrid cloud, which is growing by leaps and bounds.
Getting the most from hybrid cloud requires a careful look at infrastructure and services, along with some significant rethinking. The good news is that stepping into this diverse and sometimes complex world doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it can be surprisingly simple and easy to achieve a robust and scalable hybrid cloud with solutions such as those provided through Hitachi Vantara and VMware.
