As companies experience their digital transformation path, hybrid cloud environments are becoming the basis for flexibility, innovation and automation of data services.
A hybrid cloud is a term that seems to have different definitions, depending on who you speak. I just think of this as an environment that lets you run applications and share data on multiple clouds at the same time. Do not simplify it, but organizations need cloud flexibility and resiliency to manage and respond to business changes and real-time requirements. In fact, Hybrid Cloud is one of the emerging trends in the world of work that I wrote in 2018 and that I wrote in the January article. We have seen the development of hybrid cloud scenarios as a strategic plan for a wide range of organizations. We have also seen significant investments and are focusing on new technology providers offering hybrid cloud management services.
Focus on business goals
When we talk to leaders in all areas of the business, it is clear that we often meet the latest trends and buzzwords. When we see hybrid cloud hype, container, microservices, kubernetes, tenorflow and what you have, we need to focus on the business problems we are trying to solve. Every company is experiencing its digital transformation process, which involves the complex synchronization of people, data and applications and must provide customers with a wide range of experiences. , employees and partners in the ecosystem. The most important of these mixes is the flow of data, including knowledge-based applications and data. Data information is key business resources that drive decision making, innovation and growth.
Overcome the challenge of developing a hybrid cloud strategy
While hybrid cloud environments have many benefits, organizations should be aware of these challenges. Deploying a hybrid cloud center faces many challenges, including understanding the benefits of cloud, container and delivery management, compliance, security, data compatibility, and infrastructure costs to develop a set of best practices for the environment. Managing large amounts of cloud technology is also extremely challenging. From the point of view of service experience, how can we combine technologies like kubernetes, tenorflow and machine learning? What do you do with the old application? Also, how to achieve effective management and automation in a hybrid cloud environment? Organizations face a variety of challenges.
I recently had the opportunity to discuss general market trends and increase hybrid cloud adoption rates with Mesosphere CEO and co-founder, Florian Leibert. In fact, Mesosphere was just announced on May 7, 2018 by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc. The funds and accounts provided led to $ 125 million in scholarship rounds. And Destructive Technology Corporation (KDT) is involved by ZWC Ventures, Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) and Breakthrough Technology Consultant (DTA). I have listed all this to show the strong interest and cooperation of the investor community in this area.
Florian explained that the Mesosphere DC / OS (Data Center Operating System) platform offers users a Kubernetes online service experience and data tools, as well as container tools as machine learning tools. TensorFlow, Apache Kafka, Cassandra or Spark can be used on any infrastructure. Companies can access platforms with more than 100 technologies and can run their software in public clouds or in their data centers. Our idea is to limit the lock-in of a single public cloud provider and provide greater control of business costs.
Florian suggests that the overall investment phase will focus more on R & D, which will help them provide advanced technology services such as containers, machine learning and IoT applications to help them generate revenue. Competitive and changing customer experience. DC / OS provides a platform for powering real-time data driven applications such as connected automotive applications, custom experiences and machine learning. When I discuss competitors like Pivotal, I believe the company should continue to build a partner ecosystem. There is also a great opportunity linked to professional services. In reality, all providers offer for. Enterprises are trying to automate hybrid cloud operations and take advantage of their data in new and innovative ways. It requires technology providers that are truly partners and that can help in developing and honing their strategy.Companies have to ask for detailed examples in the way of references cases in the same industries for theirs as they calculate providers and partners’ abilities.
