Cloud computing has transformed the way we store, access and utilise data for good.
Businesses across industries have cottoned onto the undeniable benefits of hybrid cloud. They want cost-efficient network environments that deliver high performance, reliability, flexibility and, most importantly, business innovation. But the reality is that not all of them realise these benefits because of the critical barriers that their providers aren’t helping them to overcome. This can make hybrid cloud migration an expensive and counterproductive exercise.
We can guarantee that it doesn’t have to be this way. The first step is to identify the challenges that are facing organisations.
- Unpredictable cloud costs
Inaccurate assessments often lead to cloud bills that far exceed the allocated budget. Accurately assessing a company’s current hybrid footprint can be challenging and lead to inefficient and stalled migration plans.
Businesses often don’t have the requisite specialist skills to manage hybrid cloud migration initiatives. Some choose providers who can’t deliver on their promises, which jeopardises the successful execution of cloud migration.
A hybrid setup inherently involves a mix of different applications, systems and servers, which can present compatibility issues if they are not anticipated and planned for.
As data regulations evolve and businesses race to keep up, decision-makers might not always be sure if the hybrid platform they choose will align with compliance obligations.
- Poor visibility and control
Businesses can quickly lose proper oversight of their hybrid environments without the right analytics and management tools. This makes ongoing optimisation hard to achieve and can drain IT resources.
