Bridging the gap between public cloud, private cloud, and traditional enterprise infrastructure.
As organizations accelerate their digital transformation and cloud development plans, they are considering new hybrid and multi-cloud architectures to take advantage of the best cloud technology resources, wherever they reside. These new architectures need to give IT, network, and cybersecurity the capabilities to manage applications and assets on premises, in a cloud, or in multiple clouds. As organizations seek a greater mix of public, private, and hybrid cloud, new tools will be needed to drive management and automation of these hybrid environments.
The Drivers of Multi-Cloud & Hybrid Cloud
There are many drivers of the move to multi-cloud and hybrid cloud; digital transformation projects, hybrid work arrangements, automation, and data analytics efforts enabled by cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), among others. Data can reside anywhere. More than ever, organizations want to connect and integrate multiple resources in the cloud and on premises. But this task isn’t simple. The shift to hybrid and multi-cloud means not only more options, it also means managing pitfalls such as costs, security, and data governance – just to name a few of the challenges.
The Rise of Hybrid Cloud Automation Tools
Futuriom believes these trends will drive the development of a new market for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud automation tools. Growing out of the market known as cloud management, multi-cloud and hybrid cloud management is more sophisticated, requiring understanding and integration with many types of cloud platforms. This report, “The Future of Hybrid Cloud Automation,” covers how and why organizations will look for better tools to scale and balance infrastructure resources and take advantage of automation to scale.
