Why Hybrid? Modernizing IT for the Digital Era

It seems that hybrid clouds are everywhere. In a recent Frost & Sullivan survey:

  • 62% of US enterprises say they have deployed or are deploying a hybrid cloud environment.

  • 89% expect to increase their their hybrid workloads over the next two years.

In response to the growing demand, providers of IT products, services, and platforms have also stepped up their “hybrid” solutions.

In this paper, Frost & Sullivan defines “hybrid cloud” from the perspective of the enterprise. We show how the right hybrid cloud provides a critical foundation for achieving business goals—such as agility, innovation, and market responsiveness—while protecting valuable data assets. We consider the role of a third-party expert in deploying or optimizing a hybrid cloud, and provide tips for selecting the right partner.
