How can modern hybrid cloud infrastructure deliver a number of important benefits?

DevOps innovation continues to accelerate and applications are more dynamic and distributed than ever before. Businesses have become increasingly reliant on software-driven services and cloud operating models. As a result, many IT teams are finding themselves at a proverbial crossroads:

  • Do they continue to expand and maintain their existing infrastructure, which may be too rigid, too siloed, and too burdensome to support the unrelenting waves of digital change?
  • Do they lift and shift everything to the cloud, which will invariably hinder their visibility and control, create additional complexity, and may introduce unforeseen costs?
  • Or do they modernize their infrastructure to match the performance, flexibility, intelligence, and scale of the workloads, and, in turn, the users and organizations – they support?

While legacy infrastructure and cloud services are certainly viable options for select workloads and services, they become unsustainable and cost-prohibitive when they are tasked with supporting a company’s entire software portfolio. Modern hybrid cloud infrastructure, and on the other hand, can deliver a number of important benefits.

Here are 7 reasons to modernize your hybrid cloud infrastructure:

  1. Increased application performance 
  2. Faster infrastructure and application delivery via software-defined automation
  3. Better systems visibility and orchestration with single-pane-of-glass management
  4. Cost reduction with fewer software licenses and lower power and cooling overhead
  5. Increased systems integration and fewer operational siloes
  6. Improved application assurance and end-user experience
  7. Better security, compliance, and risk mitigation from core to edge to cloud

Most importantly is, that a modern hybrid cloud infrastructure can future-proof a data center, match the pace of software and service innovation, and push the business forward. Everything without compromise.
