It’s no secret that the amount of data companies have to manage has grown exponentially and will continue to do so. By 2025, IDC predicts enterprises will produce around 60% of global data. The cloud has made a lot of these processes simpler, but getting to the cloud is a unique experience for every organization and their respective data requirements. Finding the right route for your company and ensuring a strategic approach can be challenging.
While the future is most definitely in the cloud, for some data loads the cloud simply doesn’t make sense (yet), and it’s rare that a company is able to move all of its data to the cloud in one fell swoop. As companies and industries unriddle their move to the cloud, a new normal has emerged — the hybrid cloud.
The pace of technological advancement in enterprise IT is accelerating every day, and keeping up with the terminology can be a full time job all on its own. So before diving into the details of implementing a hybrid strategy, we’ve assembled a guide to managing your data in this hybrid world.
The eBook includes the benefits (cost, disaster recovery, scalability), the challenges (time, strategy, inconsistency), and the pieces you need to consider when planning your hybrid strategy, to make sure you are implementing a thorough and well-thought-out approach that is designed for the long term.
You can download your copy of our eBook, “The Hybrid Approach to Data Management," below and learn more about what the hybrid cloud is and how it’s transforming enterprise IT here: Hybrid Cloud Explained.
Whether you’re taking your first steps into the cloud or tightening an existing hybrid setup, it’s a large task, but one with results that mean more efficient and flexible IT and data management for your company. Ultimately you’ll need to determine what the right solution is for you and what combination of cloud and IT will allow you to operate most effectively at the lowest cost.
