Developing a Hybrid Cloud Strategy
Deploying your businesses sensitive data and mission critical applications to a cloud platform feels a bit like launching astronauts into deep space. Although you know they’ll do their best work out there, you can’t be certain of what they’ll encounter along the way. You need a rock solid strategy in place to ensure their safety. Not only do you need to send the appropriate resources into the clouds, but you have to have the proper resources on the ground to support their mission.
Not unlike Mission Control, businesses need a hybrid cloud strategy that best balances the physical security of keeping mission critical assets on-premises with the nearly unlimited opportunity of the cloud. Hybrid Cloud allows firms to access the economies of scale associated with a public cloud solution and still provides scalability and security for their most mission-critical data and applications. By delegating distinct functions to the public and private clouds, many businesses have been able to build an IT solution that brings them the best of both worlds, and helps to drive business growth while keeping costs down. But how do they do it?
A Capable Strategic Partner is Key
The downside of the Hybrid Cloud is the high level of complexity involved with migrating and deploying different functions to different parts of your IT infrastructure, and maintaining their interoperability once they are deployed. Beyond that, businesses often need help understanding what resources need to go into the cloud, and what resources need to stay private. It can be difficult for a firm to determine the capabilities of their own staff and infrastructure versus what is available in the cloud.
This is precisely why the experts agree how important it is for organizations to partner with a capable cloud IT provider and consultant. They need a partner with expertise to provide a holistic view of their requirements, recommend a hybrid cloud solution specifically tailored to their needs and back it up with the people and equipment to do the job right.
