Beware The Pitfalls Within Networking For Hybrid Cloud

Networking Has A Ways To Go To Make Hybrid Cloud Simple

March 2, 2015


Why Read This Report

While we would all like hybrid cloud configurations to be simple and easy, the current economic, physics, and security realities result in infrastructure integration challenges that can be complex and costly to get right. Setting up the correct types of connections is crucial to meshing public cloud platforms and on-premises resources securely and with predictable quality of service. Even though standard Internet connections may have sufficed in your pilot phase of cloud use, a seamless production hybrid demands more thorough engineering. Success in fusing internal and cloud resources requires a series of interconnected discrete services that offer survivability, dynamically change with business conditions, and meet customer expectations. This report explains how infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals can best match the various transport and connections options available for your cloud maturity level, along with overcoming some of the challenges in an environment that is relatively new and has a limited set of options.
