As workplaces continue to modernize, IT will get consistently more complex while IT departments continue to mix on-premise digital assets, cloud-based applications and servers. Chances are you already are using some sort of hybrid dynamic cloud-based services and applications, such as Microsoft Office 365 and Hosted Exchange, in conjunction with some in-house applications as well. As innovation continues, these new data loads will increase and require real-time responses while achieving availability demands.
All of these different elements together create a large complex web that many organizations are struggling to manage on their own due to a lack of expertise or budget. Because of this, organizations aren’t optimizing their IT efficiency and creating an even larger problem with operations, availability and even protection. With new emerging tech like smart traffic or medical equipment, having any kind of lag or security flaw in data transmission is unacceptable because of the catastrophic effects it could cause. Therefore, it is paramount that you are properly allocating workloads and creating the ideal balance of agility, protection and demand.
Here are a few reasons why IT is transitioning towards a hybrid future:
According to a recent study, 79% of workloads run in the cloud. When you look at just SMBs, the number jumps to 83%. Cloud is just simply a way of business now because of the inherent benefits that you can experience including agility, cost-savings, and efficiency. The cloud allows organizations to scale their data usage up or down on-demand while eliminating the expenditure of hardware. And you only pay for what you use. While the cloud still has security concerns, if properly implemented, managed and secured these can be eliminated.
As organizations move assets into cloud infrastructures, many times they are utilize multiple cloud environments. According to the previous study, they have found that cloud users run workloads in an average 1.8 public clouds and 2.3 private clouds.
Why does this happen? Different clouds can handle some workloads better than others or deliver solutions that others don’t. So, with different data loads, speeds, demands, and security it makes sense for organizations to need some kind of multi-cloud approach to get the most out of their investments.
Hybrid Dynamic & How a MSP Can Help
While organizations are using disconnected multiple clouds to achieve availability, it doesn’t fully deliver the full benefits of a hybrid cloud strategy. Businesses are struggling to link all of their cloud and on-premise assets to achieve seamless operations. Without this approach you are not achieving a harmonious environment, rather multiple disconnected environments.
Synergy is important when working with complex workplace environments. You will be able to maximize value by improving operational efficiencies and the overall customer experience. Unfortunately, organizations are struggling to achieve this synergy. To combat this challenge, organizations are turning to MSPs. A MSP can help you pin point your daily operational pains along with issues that they can foresee happening in the future.
When working with a MSP, they can help curate the proper hybrid dynamic that will provide on-demand access from a public cloud and security of the private cloud – seamlessly working together with data and application portability.
While workloads are getting bigger and availability demand is growing rapidly, it is time to make sure that you have a hybrid cloud solution that can fully support your organization’s data needs. Contact NetServe365 today for more information on a hybrid cloud environment!
