Hybrid Cloud is the New Enterprise Reality – Are You Ready?

For decades, the only organizations that had true IT functions were the ones that could afford the infrastructure and manpower costs of building their own data centers – either on or off-premise. Today, a new company can buy cloud resources, like AWS, and realistically be up and running in the cloud in a single day. But the sheer proliferation of the cloud has presented a unique range of benefits and challenges. On one hand, companies are experiencing increased efficiency, cost savings, workload scalability and speed. On the other, trends like shadow IT have made it harder for organizations to track employee activities, manage cloud resources and embrace emerging technologies like DevOps, microservices and containers.

Transforming How Fanatics Licenses Sports Apparel with Embotics

As server virtualization continues to mature, many organizations are moving beyond simple virtualization into public, private or hybrid cloud environments. Such environments allow authorized users to create their own virtual machines based on templates that are listed in a service cloud. However, self-service models introduce additional complexity and increase the potential for IT resources to be wasted and for costs to spiral out of control. In turn, IT departments are challenged with managing infrastructures that deploy tens of thousands of virtual machines across multiple operating systems in multiple datacenters and fulfilment centers.

4 Steps to Selecting a Hybrid Cloud Management System

Different management needs can and will surface at different phases in your hybrid cloud journey, and it can be easy to attempt to satisfy these requirements through the purchase of individual “tools.” But because there is a large amount of interaction and inter-dependency between them, starting with any standalone tool is not recommended.
