Hybrid Clouds Need a Fresh Approach

A seamless hybrid cloud, garnering the best from private and public cloud infrastructure, is the goal of many IT teams. A well-designed hybrid cloud is needed to make strategic workload placement decisions. For many critical and predictable workloads, owning infrastructure is most appropriate, while some workloads are best consumed as a public service.

But hybrid cloud is hard. Traditional third-party cloud environments don’t integrate with on-prem infrastructure. These public services have separate set of constructs and management tools. An all too common result is yet another IT silo, with distinct operational requirements. Given this complexity, most organizations resign themselves by experimenting with new workloads (think cloud native or Mode2 apps) in public clouds, while keeping traditional, Mode1 apps in the datacenter.

To resolve this point of friction, and to create a more unified fabric across different cloud environments, we need
