Cloud anywhere: Azure for hybrid, multicloud and edge environments

Today, 94% of companies use the cloud in some way,1 but every company moves to the cloud at a different pace and has different strategies and priorities for what needs to be deployed to the cloud. Some will adopt cloud computing to solve an urgent business need; others will have a longer term, planful cloud migration. Either way, the ongoing effort to improve business operations and create an agile development process can have organizations working in IT environments that span across on-premises, multicloud, and edge infrastructure.
While some may argue that hybrid cloud is a stepping-stone to a fully in-the-cloud business, many companies recognize that a hybrid cloud strategy is not transitional, but a part of optimizing infrastructure over a wide variety of considerations. Hybrid cloud infrastructure is a natural evolution of information technology that typically happens at a gradual pace. Companies transition some of their hardware and software to cloud services and technologies, resulting in a computing environment that combines on-premises, multicloud, and edge computing, using software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Many enterprise IT managers—as many as 85% according to one study—have focused on hybrid cloud as the best model for their business.
