Solving hybrid cloud with CloudNexus

By Blake Gillman July 11, 2017

Cloud adoption continues to be on the rise for a growing number of enterprise organizations, with business/data analytics and data storage/data management leading the way. As the enterprise carries on with implementing and growing cloud adoption strategies and defining cloud architectures, concerns about where data is stored, cloud security and vendor lock-in stand out as the top three challenges these organizations must face.

Tracing the origins of hybrid cloud

Initially, the enterprise shifted applications to the public cloud in order to transition from a capital expenditures (CAPEX) model to an operating expenses (OPEX) model. This gave the enterprise the advantage of outsourcing expensive compute and storage solutions while, at the same time, implementing a modern architecture for quickly deploying applications and services. As the cloud adoption strategy continues to evolve, the enterprise has also adopted private and third-party cloud solutions to round out their overall cloud architecture. From that need, hybrid cloud was born.

Hybrid cloud architectures are projected to be a fundamental solution as a larger percentage of enterprises move toward an entirely cloud-based strategy over the coming months. The advantages of this approach include removing vendor lock-in, giving the enterprise the flexibility to utilize the most cost-effective provider based on usage rates and ensuring robust security by keeping sensitive data safely on premise.
