How to Decide Between a Hybrid Cloud and Multicloud Environment

Article | February 26, 2020

Judging from search engine traffic — and from the calls I receive — there’s some confusion out there about hybrid cloud and multicloud. More than once, I’ve heard the story of a technology manager’s boss returning from a conference a year or two ago raving about hybrid cloud, only now to insist that the organization needs to pursue a multicloud strategy. This rapid change in focus, combined with continued confusion over the terms themselves, is enough to make an IT professional’s head spin. In truth, hybrid cloud and multicloud (and even some combination of them) are completely viable models, with various organizations relying on each to achieve significant business benefits. But before IT and business leaders can decide which approach makes the most sense for them, they need to step back and ask themselves what outcomes they are trying to achieve.

Charles Ferland, vice president and general manager for networking and communications service providers at Lenovo Data Center Group, said the Lenovo Open Cloud Automation (LOC-A) framework provides a single pane of glass through which IT teams can not only provision IT infrastructure but also invoke other frameworks to automate, for example, the deployment of virtual machines on top of that IT infrastructure. Ferland said while there are plenty of frameworks for automating the deployment of virtual machines, many IT teams will spend weeks manually provisioning IT infrastructure. LOC-A provides a mechanism to reduce the time and effort required to minutes. However,

Future-Proof Your IT: 4 Questions to Find the Right Strategy for You

Article | February 26, 2020

Cloud computing has completely changed the way we do business—and despite common misconceptions, the impact goes way beyond where files are stored. Sales teams can access customer relationship management (CRM) solutions from anywhere in the world, thanks to software as a service (SaaS). SaaS solutions also drive some of today’s most important customer interactions. At the same time, IT departments are under pressure to offer secure storage, lightning fast networking, and fast computing capabilities. There’s an increasing shift to “as a service” consumption models, and there’s a newer option to consider: “pay as you go.” Here’s what you need to consider as you navigate the evolving landscape of IT strategy.
