Companies are increasingly interested in the cloud. As this occurs, managers find that one size does not always fit all. Interests are also fuzzy. While some companies assess issues such as the economy through public structures, others seek more security and customization in private environments.
Additionally, there are CIOs who receive requests to merge the best of both worlds. The industry came up the answer to this dilemma with the concept of hybrid cloud. Many want to merge flexibility, agility, speed and cost of a model with the control, security and performance of the other.
For a company that has evaluated the adoption of this model, you know there is no better way for a company to get the best financial arrangements without losing security and scalability. However, according to experts, some points need to be considered. Here's some of them:
1. Assess your needs.
Sounds simple, but it's not always. Some simple questions need to be answered before you even start. For example: why do you need the cloud? Some companies simply consider the concept as a vector of economy, or reduced effort to outsource the management of machines or systems, etc.
Another thing to consider is that the use of the cloud releases the IT department of some heavy duties. Spending less time on operational work can free up space in the technology professionals to a more innovative agenda and contribute to the organization's business.
2. Categorize your applications and data.
The end result of having a hybrid environment is the separation of applications and company information into categories that indicate which of the two clouds this is. This is a critical step and requires honest observation about the "assets" that may or may not be moved to the cloud according to the sensitivity of this to the business of the organization. Where should you stay? How should you mix according to your needs?
3. Choose a provider CAREFULLY.
Finding the right provider – the one with great experience and some success in providing similar solutions for their business – requires another series of questions. Make inquiries like: what are their statistics of reliability and availability? How many customers do they have? How many of those customers are large, medium and small? Do some of these clients have similar business or acts in the vertical of your company?
