How Do I Mitigate Challenges of Deploying a Hybrid Cloud Environment?

Learn More

Creating a hybrid cloud migration strategy as part of your IT infrastructure is your first step to mitigating hybrid cloud migration challenges. Not all public clouds are created equal, so it is important to decide which public cloud provider is best for your organization. Having a strong grasp on your data and processes will help enable your cloud integration to go more smoothly.

Also, it is important to note that the majority of successful cloud migrations aren’t typically completed in a single effort or project. It is wise to implement smaller projects with the end goal of a hybrid environment. Your company may benefit from building a limited hybrid cloud model in order to support specific workloads, and then build out additional services as your efforts in a hybrid cloud initiative show the benefits and value to your business and stakeholders.

How does a Hybrid Cloud Increase Agility?

Learn More

Private networks are costly to build, maintain, and expand. As a result, they limit a company’s agility to take advantage of new technologies and opportunities. Hybrid clouds enables companies to reap the benefits of both a public and private cloud. Business-critical data, applications, and operations can remain in a private cloud environment. The power of cloud computing can be leveraged in a public cloud environment. Public cloud computing resources increase a business’ scalability and agility. This is done by facilitating the ability to develop new applications. Cloud computing also runs analytics that would have been beyond the scope of a smaller organization with only a few servers to utilize. Hybrid clouds level the playing fields for companies of all sizes to compete with competitors who are more established. Rapid growth is now possible.

How does a Hybrid Cloud Increase Speed?

Learn More

A major advantage of hybrid cloud architecture is speed. While a multi-cloud or purely public cloud environment might be inherently faster than a hybrid cloud environment, IT staff is able to reduce latency and can optimize their network to make sure data is where it needs to be.

Hybrid cloud environments leverage edge computing architectures to further increase speed and locate crucial data and applications for its end users. Private portions of a hybrid cloud can be configured to be more purpose built to maximize resources and enable users to work faster and ultimately be more productive. Organizations can offload non-critical operations to a public cloud and configure their network to handle solely critical traffic.

How does a Hybrid Cloud Increase Control?

Learn More

A key benefit of a hybrid cloud solution is increased control for IT personnel. Companies can customize their private data and applications to a hybrid cloud architecture model in order to adjust their IT infrastructure to their needs. Increased control post-hybrid cloud migration is achieved when internal IT staff retains the ability to manage critical operations and IT infrastructure like servers and hardware.

Having control over IT assets in a responsive hybrid cloud architecture model is advantageous for organizations who want responsiveness in their cloud environments. Today’s fast-changing IT landscape has companies making changes frequently and adjusting and reconfiguring their cloud environments. Vital data assets need to be protected during those changes in order to have minimal disruption. Companies also need to be prepared for changes in their cloud provider’s SLAs and sudden loss of services.

What is a Hybrid Cloud?

Learn More

Put simply, a “hybrid cloud” is a cloud computing strategy which enables companies to combine different cloud environments that are connected to each other. These cloud environments can be private or third-party clouds, public clouds, virtualized infrastructures, or a mixture of on-premises and cloud computing environments.

Hybrid clouds are configured to operate independently of each other, and data that is shared across the communication channels is highly encrypted. Hybrid clouds are incredibly stable since a company’s critical data and workloads are stored in the private cloud.

What are the Downsides of Using a Private Cloud?

Learn More

The private cloud is extremely secure; however, data stored in a private cloud will likely still have to be transmitted into the public cloud in order to run analytics, processes, and applications, so extensive encryption needs to be implemented in order to keep data as secure as possible. IT staff still retains control of the structure of the public cloud; therefore, access to the data must be managed and strict protocols should be implemented on how those critical assets are managed.

What are the Benefits of Using a Private Cloud?

Learn More

Companies gain flexibility, control of benefits, guaranteed availability of resources, exceptionally strong security and regulatory compliance, and cost savings when utilizing a private cloud. Storcom’s private cloud leverages best-in-breed technology to ensure that your critical data is accessible whenever and wherever you need it.

What are the Advantages of Using a Hybrid Cloud?

Learn More

The hybrid cloud allows for maximized IT utility, resilience, and agility. Public and private clouds have different areas where they each excel, so companies are able to reap the benefits of each platform when using a hybrid cloud solution. Private clouds enable organizations to scale up and down based on demand, which often comes with a lower cost, and private cloud solutions offer superior security and control. Some companies prefer that their critical data is stored in a private cloud, and other data and applications can be stored in a public cloud to lower cost. When using a hybrid cloud, your company is able to find the most suitable use cases for your IT environment and your cloud experience and utility is not limited by an either/or decision.

A virtual private cloud (VPC) is the logical division of a service provider's public cloud multi-tenant architecture to support private cloud computing.

2 decades of cloud: Where it’s been and where it’s heading

Editor's note: The following is a guest article from Oussama El-Hilali, CTO at Arcserve.Ten years ago, a cloud-born application was out of reach. The cloud was traditionally used to store copies of data, applications and workloads in case of unforeseen downtime so IT teams could feel confident their data is protected and accessible in minutes.But, cloud isn't just reserved for backups anymore – it has grown in popularity, largely due to its flexibility, scalability and ease of use. I…

Hosted private cloud: Key benefits and drawbacks

A recent Gartner report claims that 28% of spending in key IT segments will shift to the cloud by 2022. While that growth signals an increased desire for the flexibility of the cloud, the fact is the remainder of the IT budget, representing the bulk of organizations' workloads, still resides in the secure confines of the corporate data center.Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are increasingly trying to lure those workloads into the cloud with the concept of "hosted private cloud." To that end, w…
