Why Haven’t Many Enterprises Deployed Hybrid Clouds Aggressively?
Cloud computing is progressing very rapidly all around the world, especially in the developed countries – private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid clouds are the major domains of cloud structures presently in commercial use. The public cloud and the private clouds have their own pros and cons in terms of their application in the field of information technology. The hybrid cloud solution has been developed out of these two technologies to provide the most desirable technical and business results.
There are many companies that still stick to either on-site data centers or to private clouds in spite of the fact that the hybrid cloud has developed a lot. The solutions based on hybrid cloud format have attained many great features and capabilities for the development of this platform – high level of scalability in a short period, demands of resources for application development and quality assurance procedures, high level network and data security, easy and procedural migration, disaster recovery, and the capabilities of handling the ever increasing data storage demands.
In spite of above mentioned features and capabilities, why the enterprises have not gone aggressively to deploy such an exciting platform in their IT networks is a typical question. There are three basic typical challenges in the hybrid cloud platform that are delaying the enterprises to go all out in this domain of technology:
- Complexity in operation and migration
- Inconsistency between public and private formats
- Restricted visibility and management
The above mentioned issues are really the big ones to tackle before attracting the enterprises to this appealing platform. There are many IT vendors that have recently developed very suitable solutions to these challenges, and many others are trying hard to get the most suitable solutions so that the enterprises can be helped out to migrate to cloud computing.
The hybrid cloud platform brings enterprise users several important benefits – rapid provisioning of resources, simplified network operations, and accelerated time to market, just to name a few. At present, there are some big enterprises and applications that have already migrated to this amazing platform taking advantage of certain highly competitive service level agreements (or SLAs) in the marketplace.
