The hybrid cloud is the future for many companies. Businesses large and small are turning to blended infrastructure because it combines the best of all worlds: public cloud, private cloud and dedicated servers working together in any combination.
Let’s face it. Most people hate the software they use at work.
Business software is clunky, expensive, hard to setup and frustrating to use. Countless hours are wasted trying to customize these solutions and they often require expensive professional services to get everything to work. In the end, the solution becomes so complex that businesses need to hire full-time employees to babysit the software.
The move to the cloud is the cornerstone of modern innovation—from IaaS to PaaS or SaaS—it introduces a multitude of new opportunities for your organization. And whether it’s private, hybrid, or public cloud, a shift and lift, or full cloud native approaches to application development, cloud adoption will put you on the right path to your Digital Transformation.
Use infrastructure-as-a-service: run on servers that can be flexibly provisioned on demand.
Design systems using, or evolve them towards, a microservices architecture: individual components are small and decoupled.
Automate and encode: replace manual tasks with scripts or code.
Containerize: package processes with their dependencies making them easy to test, move and deploy.
Orchestrate: abstract away individual servers in production using off-the-shelf management and orchestration tools.
