Gone are those days, where cloud computing was the future. It’s here and it is changing the way you and thousands of other organizations do business at a great rate.
Migration to a hybrid cloud model is one of the latest trends that stands out. A hybrid cloud model uses multiple clouds for service – private, as a mix of on-premise and data center supported, and public environments, supported by third parties.
According to the TechPro Research, 36% of the companies who responded to their survey were already hybrid cloud users and 32% were considering to migrate. Industry statistics seem to support this trend, too.
Agility and flexibility are the main advantages that hybrid cloud offers. Workload can be managed on an application-by-application basis, this, in turn, enables enterprises to plan for a growing mobile workforce and allot resources to the Internet of Things (IoT) applications and big data analytics.
If your organization is already going hybrid or considering to migrate to hybrid, or if your IT prefers going to the cloud because it is easier than working through legacy IT service delivery systems — then ask yourself (and your broader IT organization) these three questions:
1. Do I want to optimize capacity by harnessing the power of automation?
Call it resource optimization on-premises. Call it lowering the monthly cloud bill.
The good news is — there is no issue here. It is all opportunity. You can use automation driving both software-defined data center technology and cloud APIs to be a better steward of your resources and funding.
2. Can I give our mobile workers secure remote access to our corporate cloud?
An access solution that compromises the mobile experience may be as bad as one that undermines security. If your security controls are hard to navigate, people may work around them to save time.
3. What network and data security policies does our cloud providers offer?
Security should be top of mind.
Start with the technology and systems that protect the cloud infrastructure. Then, look at the encryption of data transmissions. See how it defends data in transit.
