Do You Know the 8 Essentials for Hybrid IT?
Today’s businesses are rapidly changing – and that is all part of a wider digital transformation initiative that is sweeping the industry. Yet as businesses move to the public cloud seeking lower costs and greater flexibility, they’re discovering some challenges. These challenges are coming in the form of unexpected costs. Others arise while trying to move traditional workloads off-premises to locations that are sometimes less than ideal.
More and more enterprises are recognizing that a hybrid IT strategy solves many of these challenges. Hybrid IT provides a balanced combination of traditional infrastructure, private cloud, and public cloud. After careful analysis, hybrid IT allows IT teams to select the best deployment model for each application. Mission-critical workloads can remain on-premises, where employees can confidently retain complete control. Whereas a newly-developed, revenue-generating app can hum along beautifully in the public cloud. And a non-revenue generating app can run extremely well on a private cloud, where it’s available for all to use without costing the business an arm and a leg.
So, all is well…right? Well, not quite.

What IT needs is a single platform to easily see and manage everything at the same time, regardless of where it is being hosted.
