Defined its meaning refers to the quality, state, or capability of being connected to a computer or series of computers.
That’s fine and dandy when placed in a dictionary reference, but in the IT world, it’s SO much more than that. The complexities involve connecting your computers to the Internet, your Internet to servers, your servers to the cloud, and your cloud provider to all of the applications your business requires to operate. And that’s a very basic representation of the details.
But even in a basic representation, you can see just how deep the rabbit hole can get.
As cloud services progress, enterprises are accessing the benefits of multiple service providers via one connectivity strategy. Cloud connectivity plays a significant part as more companies opt for cloud services to solve their business data needs. Enterprises looking to optimize their applications can combine their cloud service of choice into one solution – a hybrid cloud.
It’s like a common public or private cloud, but so much better!
In short, here’s why:
Hybrid cloud offerings merge data center services, cloud access, and managed services into one simplified, fully optimized solution.
If you can’t beat them, join them.
According to the 2017 State of the Cloud Survey, 67 percent of enterprises are already participating in one, and the number is set to increase in the upcoming years. Enterprises already working with cloud service providers can quickly make the shift to a hybrid ecosystem by engaging in a hybrid cloud strategy.
Your cloud provider’s performance is only as good as your connectivity solution. So, if we were to place you in the driver’s seat wouldn’t it make life a whole lot easier to combine all of your services into one unified solution?
