What IT Leaders Need to Know When Buying for a Technology Refresh – Data Center Hybrid Private Cloud Edition
Adopting hybrid cloud is a powerful IT modernization strategy for achieving your organization’s goals:
• Short term – Application modernization and business resiliency objectives during tumultuous times, like economic downturns and remote working
• Long term – Digital demands and the need to keep IT strategy ahead of business investments through economic recovery.
The process to pick the best-fit hybrid cloud platform for your organization should begin with an internal assessment. What are your goals? Identifying your needs—both current and future use cases—will help you better evaluate the private and public cloud capabilities as well as the hybrid cloud operations you will need to serve all of your workload types and deployment locations.
For example, if your organization will need to extend workloads to multiple clouds, you will want to choose a hybrid cloud such as VMware Cloud Foundation™ that unifies operations and seamlessly supports multi-cloud.
This Buyer’s Guide features a five-step approach with checklists that will help you and your IT team chart a successful journey to hybrid cloud. Use it to document your needs as you shift to a cloud operating model for automated and optimized delivery of all of your IT services that support any application on any cloud.
