Hybrid cloud architectures have been common since the dawn of the cloud computing revolution in the mid-2000s. Over the past several years, however, the opportunities and challenges surrounding hybrid cloud have changed tremendously. The rise of multi-cloud means that many organizations now have more than one public cloud running within their hybrid cloud architectures, adding management and security challenges. New frameworks for building hybrid clouds, like Google Anthos and Azure Stack, have created novel opportunities for building more sophisticated hybrid clouds, but have also given rise to new challenges surrounding lock-in and management. The massive adoption of more complex infrastructure technologies that can run in hybrid clouds, like containers and Kubernetes, has had a similar effect.
For these reasons and more, it's high time for organizations to revisit their hybrid cloud strategies. This webinar offers insight into a variety of factors that IT teams should consider to modernize their hybrid clouds, including:
- Which workloads to run in which part of your hybrid cloud today.
- Why (or why not) to take advantage of frameworks like OpenStack, Anthos, Azure Stack or AWS Outposts as part of a hybrid strategy.
- Migration methods for moving workloads into, out of and within hybrid clouds.
- Challenges and solutions for securing modern hybrid clouds.
- Best practices for balancing hybrid cloud performance, cost and reliability.
