Enterprises increasingly look to cloud deployment as a viable model for agile, cost-effective IT delivery. However, the prevailing binary paradigm of cloud infrastructure (public versus private) limits the extent to which enterprises can fully leverage the on-demand, self-service, elastic resource provisioning attributes of public cloud while maintaining the same security, reliability, performance, and management frameworks present in current private cloud implementations. In this scenario Hybrid Cloud solves this problem to a large extent.
This white paper talks about how enterprises can embrace a hybrid cloud model effectively by taking the advantage of the right mix of public and private cloud services. Fill up the form below to know in detail
Hybrid Cloud, nowadays has become the best choice for many businesses as it is a blend of public cloud, private cloud and traditional information technology (IT) platforms. So here we will see how to design a successful hybrid cloud?
With public and private cloud, it’s a fact that one cloud doesn’t fit every company. But for enterprises those prefer to go both with the straight-up economy and convenience of public cloud and added security and customization of private cloud, hybrid cloud is the best choice for them. Finding the right cloud technology begins with deciding what to move to the cloud and addressing the challenges affecting the migration. It is found that there are complications in running a hybrid cloud versus just a private or public cloud. So if enterprises are looking to use a hybrid of public and private cloud set-ups, what’s the best way to do it? How can a company try to get the best financial deal and still get the security and scalability it needs?
The hybrid cloud model consists of at least one public cloud and one private cloud — but deployment is not very easy. Getting a successful hybrid cloud project off the ground means dealing with migration and integration challenges. Understanding how to get started on your hybrid cloud will be the key to success — from choosing a provider to planning and executing a migration.
TIPS TO CONSIDER TO BUILD A SUCCESSFUL HYBRID CLOUD
- Assess your needs: Enterprises should discuss and decide on what do we need out of cloud. Decide whether you want to build your own or do you want to lease private-cloud space on a third-party service, do you have specialists who can handle this or should you get outside assistance from cloud consultants and other specialists? As per the requirements try to find answers for simple questions like this before embracing cloud.
- Choose the right vendors: Do a thorough research to find the right vendor. Check out the client’s stats on their reliability, security methods, their past work history etc.
- Security and compliance requirements: New solutions are being developed rapidly. Many cloud vendors provide comprehensive metrics and consumption activities, as well as tracking and monitoring capabilities. A company’s consumption pattern reports can often be used for audits as evidence of compliance.
- Categorize apps, data: Before moving to cloud, companies should depend on policies for what applications or data should be in a private or public cloud. The end result of having a hybrid system is it separates the company’s information and applications into categories based on where they need to sit in the cloud. So a critical step is to take an honest look at what you’re considering to move into the cloud and figure out how sensitive it is or how strategic it is to the core business.
- Estimated ROI: Cloud can definitely help your cash flow by eliminating the need for capital investment in new hardware. In order to get a measure of your cloud ROI, it’s important to calculate the total cost of ownership (TCO) for the on-premises first. This will help us put the cost of a cloud solution into perspective. Hybrid cloud can help to improve an organization’s operations by means of greater agility and speed, more effective reallocation of internal resources and better linkage between business and IT departments.
While debate rages about privacy, cost and security issues of cloud computing, many IT pros agree the hybrid cloud is gaining ground and it offers the best balance of cloud benefits and risks.
