The Benefits of Hybrid IT: Expectations vs. Reality Hybrid IT is today's reality, and while its implementation may seem daunting at times, more and more organizations are migrating to the cloud. In fact, according to SolarWinds 2017 IT Trends Index: Portrait of a Hybrid IT Organization 95 percent of organizations have migrated crucial applications to the cloud in the past year. As such, it's in every IT professional's best interest to know what to expect. Certainly, every business has a varying expectation of what they'd like to gain by migrating applications or infrastructure to the cloud, but the most compelling incentives are by far the opportunity to achieve a simplified management process, faster deployment, or a cost efficiency that benefits their bottom line. Unfortunately, for many organizations, achieving these benefits isn't always easy-or even the reali... (more)

Hybrid Cloud Security | @CloudExpo @Cavirin #API #SDN #AI #DX #DataCenter

According to a recent Gartner study, by 2020, it will be unlikelythat any enterprise will have a "no cloud" policy, and hybrid will be the most common use of the cloud. While the benefits of leveraging public cloud infrastructures are well understood, the desire to keep critical workloads and data on-premise in the private data center still remains. For enterprises, the hybrid cloud provides a best of both worlds solution. However, the leading factor that determines the preference to the hybrid cloud, among other things, is "security." Moreover, as the growth of the public cloud infrastructure continues, it is not hard to observe two key directions of focus by the cloud providers, namely: The geographical expansiveness of their public cloud infrastructure to grow the number of availability zones The richness of their services catalog to ensure cloud adopters are n...

Launching First Vendor-Agnostic Hybrid Data Gateway | @CloudExpo @ProgressSW #Cloud #BigData #Analytics

Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source - without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It's no longer a "nice-to-have" but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It's the new "must have" in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. They're dealing with greater volumes of data than ever before, and much of this resides behind corporate firewalls. Traditional approaches for exposing this data, such as VPN and SSH tunneling are difficult to manage and not engineered for the cloud. If you want to create a frictionless data access experience for your customers, join us at Cloud Expo, June 6-8 in New York City.... (more)

Hybrid and Multicloud Environments | @CloudExpo @AppNeta #AI #Monitoring

How to Manage Hybrid and Multicloud Environments (No, They Aren't the Same) By Joe Michalowski Even for the most seasoned IT pros, the cloud is complicated. It can be difficult just to wrap your head around the many terms and acronyms that make up the cloud dictionary-not to mention actually mastering the technology. Unfortunately, complicated cloud terms are often combined to the point that their meanings are lost in a sea of conflicting opinions. Two terms that are used interchangeably (but shouldn't be) are hybrid cloud and multicloud. If you want to be the cloud expert your company needs, you have to lock down the differences between these terms-and understand how to manage a mix of these environments. Hybrid Cloud vs. Multicloud Explained It's time to set the record straight when it comes to hybrid cloud and multicloud environments. Keep these distinctions in mind... (more)

Evaluating Hybrid Cloud | @CloudExpo #SDN #DataCenter #Compliance

Bringing Sanity to Evaluating Hybrid Cloud Technology is advancing at a rapid pace. To keep up, organizations must now take more strategic approaches to their business management solutions that support respective requirements. Today, in every organization, conflicting interests, misinformation, and fear of change make it difficult to know how to navigate the cloud safely. That's why, when making a sensible technology plan for the times ahead, it's crucial to ask the following questions to wade through the confusion. 1. What regulatory requirements govern your data? Understanding the state and federal compliance requirements that apply to one's business data is a process, not an event. Data protection requirements are increasingly strict, while enforcement penalties are on the rise. That's why businesses need to define and document specific compliance requirements. O... (more)

DevOps and Hybrid Clouds By @EFeatherston | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

DevOps and Hybrid Clouds: A Match Made in Heaven? It seems today we are in a constant state of business and technology disruption. The convergence of the social, mobile, analytics, and cloud (SMAC) disruptions have both forced and enabled organizations to move at breakneck speeds addressing the needs and expectations of the lines of business/end users. This speed requires the development teams to be agile. They must be able to respond quickly to changing needs and demands of the organization. The quality assurance (QA) team still needs to ensure a quality product is being sent into production. Finally, the operations team needs to be able to adequately deploy and support these systems. Communication, collaboration, and streamlining of processes are key elements to the success of this rapidly changing environment. Out of that challenge was born the concept and term ... (more)
