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.
