The advancement of cloud solutions and technologies has created a transformation in how most companies consume infrastructure services. Today, most of us find ourselves in a hybrid cloud state, consuming compute services in a variety of ways. IaaS, PaaS and SaaS have become everyday words. However, when it comes managing and integrating cloud solutions with internal IT systems and practices, many organisations struggle.
Hybrid cloud is the ticket to an ultimate IT experience. Hybrid environments connect on-premise systems to one or more public cloud solutions. This sets you up to accelerate IT services, and, in the end, helps you become digitally enabled.
However, there are challenges and risks involved with taking the plunge into hybrid solutions. The growing capabilities of hyperscale platforms, like AWS and Azure, come with an intense, ever-changing burden of complexity that requires you to modify tools and teams continuously. Mistakes once contained within your data center are often amplified in the public cloud. It’s common for strategic directives, such as “get out of the data center business” and “automate everything,” to transform into hyper-expensive projects that consume IT organizations for years.
