Hybrid IT: A Journey for You and the Modern MSP

The best of both IT worlds!

Emily Simpson

16/02/2017

In recent years, the cloud has emerged as the leading technology for delivering services across industries

How have cloud technology-as-a-service solutions come to dominate the market so quickly?

  1. The internet continues to improve and is the backbone of delivering cloud solutions anywhere.
  2. Cost-effective, high-speed networks and broadband used by individuals, small businesses, and enterprises.
  3. Server virtualization has dramatically reduced the cost of powerful computing (possibly to a tipping point for #2)

Now, massive and extremely cost-effective datacenters around the world are hosting all the software that drives "as-a-service" apps. Businesses of all sizes and their employees can access these datacenters for services from around the world via reliable and affordable high-speed networks.

All cloud all the time? Not yet…

Despite all the powerful advancements, we are living in a hybrid world of on-premises and cloud technologies.

Though cloud computing is here, SMBs and their Modern MSP need to approach cloud computing as a journey from on-premises technology to cloud computing.

During the transition, a hybrid model is a great (and often recommended) next step to gain the flexibility, scalability, and affordability of cloud computing while getting the full life and utility from existing on-premises IT.

A Modern MSP with expertise in both traditional on-premises technology and cloud computing can help customers build an intelligent solution now that will help an SMB transition in the future. The right partner will help to make every investment in the cloud an investment that addresses immediate needs as well as long-term goals.

Hybrid Infrastructure with Azure

A hybrid network allows you to move services between on-premises and cloud at your own pace, without major changes to applications: reducing risks and lowering costs.

How? It's all about the business outcomes you have in mind.

Just as moving to the cloud is a journey, so are the long-term business outcomes you hope to achieve. Combine the two goals and you create a powerful feedback loop to drive your IT and your business forward.

We're here to help you grow. We look forward to the opportunity to discuss your unique needs and see where the cloud fits into your IT and business planning. Contact us to arrange a cloud suitability analysis day, or for assistance setting up a hybrid network with Azure.
