The purpose of this research is to understand the challenges companies face in their document or file level security practices as a result of the adoption of such disruptive technologies as mobile devices and cloud services.
Many businesses are beginning to understand that hybrid cloud can provide the best of both worlds: on-demand access to much-needed IT resources, and the flexibility to move workloads onsite or offsite to meet specific needs. The most common question is not “Why hybrid cloud?” but “How do we get started?”
Depending on your specific IT strategy and requirements, consider evaluating the following five types of workloads for hybrid cloud.
Wish you could meet your development and testing requirements to get your applications to market faster? Now you can with VMware vCloud® Air™— a cloud service platform that provides on-demand access to compute resources that are 100% compatible with your VMware vSphere® environment.
Organizations struggle to meet the demand for scalable and resilient infrastructure to develop and test applications. A growing number of organizations are consuming or considering cloud services to accelerate software dev/test cycles. Cloud services enable them to take advantage of on-demand capacity to deal with these key challenges:
• Limited IT resources force trade-offs in prioritizing projects.
• Unpredictable requirements for dev/test result in overpurchasing and underutilization.
• Lengthy purchasing and provisioning cycles for new infrastructure add time and cost to projects.
• Incompatible dev/test and production environments require workarounds that draw out timelines and raise the risk of errors.
Cloud adoption continues to expand beyond the base of cutting-edge early adopters and is now reaching the "early mainstream" stage, increasingly being looked at by enterprises 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. Hybrid cloud solves this problem.
Businesses are embracing public cloud because it promises increased agility and scalability. But it can also introduce complexity, interoperability, and security concerns. Hybrid cloud is emerging as a way to mitigate those concerns by providing the right combination of internal controls with the ability to securely scale to meet business demand for IT resources.
As you contemplate moving various pre-production and production workloads—and your mission-critical and sensitive data—to the cloud, be sure to develop a strategic approach based on your business and IT objectives.
Here are the top five considerations to keep in mind as you begin evaluating hybrid cloud for your workloads.
