Hybrid cloud is about combining the best of public and private cloud, alongside the on-premise IT infrastructure. The purpose is to simplify, modernize and secure the digital IT backbone, and to deliver all the benefits of cloud computing (flexibility, scalability and cost efficiencies) with a low risk of data exposure.
Many organizations have ended up in a hybrid cloud environment by accident. They lack overview, as well as a unified security, long-term implementation strategy, and management plan. Even large IT organizations are often unable to adopt hybrid cloud with optimum speed, security and certainty.
To realize its full potential, you need a holistic approach. You should create an environment that dynamically orchestrates application workloads between your private and public clouds, and that unifies your underlying architecture with integrated processes, tools and comprehensive governance.
