What is hybrid cloud? At a high level, hybrid cloud is simply the combination of public and private cloud environments working together to run your applications or workloads. With the growth of microservices, container-based applications, and orchestration tools like Kubernetes, we’re seeing companies across all industries pressured to take advantage of public clouds. However, it’s nearly never an option to make that transition in one fell swoop—a gradual transformation must be made.
Diving deeper into hybrid cloud, the resulting architectures prove to be unwieldy, and without the right tools, it can become an expensive development and operations effort. In this video, I’ll overview the basics of a hybrid cloud environment by tackling a common use-case: migrating a legacy application to the cloud. We’ll then highlight and elaborate on key tenets of all hybrid clouds: interoperability, scalability, portability, and security.

The newer cloud solutions on the market are associated with great advantages in terms of scalability, security, flexibility and access to the latest technologies. However, many organizations still prefer to only have part of their workloads and IT-environment in the cloud and keep the rest on-premise. Such a hybrid cloud approach offers great advantages if executed […]
IBM Cloud is the best public cloud for business due to new data protection and security leadership, open source innovation, and more enterprise grade capabilities. Until recently it was enough that you could migrate relatively simple applications and workloads to the cloud. Public cloud has been used until recently mostly to test new technologies and […]
