Your business wants the advantages of scalability and cost-effectiveness of public cloud solutions but you need to retain secure in-house IT infrastructure for mission-critical applications.
You have existing IT investments that you simply want to extend or enhance, not replace. You live in the real world where the cloud is an extension of your organisation, not an instant replacement.
How do you decide what to keep on-premise and what to place in the cloud? How do you integrate your cloud infrastructure from different suppliers with your on-premise resources? Hybrid cloud solutions reflect the practical realities of business in many organisations.
