Hybrid cloud architecture combines the advantages of public cloud and SaaS apps with the resilience and security of private cloud or on-premises environments. Getting your hybrid cloud right is critical to future business and without the right tools can be costly and challenging to implement and manage.
Multi-cloud works well for organisations that have a best-of-breed approach to IT and want to avoid vendor lock-in so they are not subject to changes in cost or operating system requirements. However managing different cloud vendors requires significant expertise.
Cloud operations teams need to be familiar with multiple cloud management tools specific to each cloud. Staff need to be to be able to apply policies consistently across all their cloud environments.
As hybrid environments expand, they become increasingly complex and difficult to manage for optimal performance, cost-effectiveness, governance and cloud app security.
As organisations struggle to get hybrid right, they risk losing out on edge computing which is the next big infrastructure development.
