Building a better hybrid cloud
Hybrid cloud adoption is on the rise because of benefits like cost, functionality, and availability (remember last month's Amazon Web Services S3 outage?). But we recommend going a step further: Open hybrid cloud adds the interoperability, workload portability, and flexibility of open source to your hybrid environment.
Ultimately, an open hybrid cloud approach brings cloud benefits to more of your IT infrastructure, applications, and users. This month, explore how open hybrid cloud is influencing IT trends and helping businesses, and get advice for navigating your hybrid cloud journey.
Digital transformation—brought to you by open hybrid cloud
Digital transformation is, in part, about making new and better applications. And new apps need a modern platform with new capabilities. Changes in how apps are designed, developed, and deployed come together through an open hybrid cloud strategy.
CHANGE IS GOOD
