Hybrid cloud can protect your data, through security and resiliency to secure and integrate your IT infrastructure. It is resilient and designed for continuous service. Implementing hybrid cloud can isolate workloads and its data to protect against threats. With hybrid cloud agility and demand on growth you can scale vertically to meet the fluctuating demands of modern digital services. Also, hybrid cloud is built on open standards and takes a single standard approach across the application life cycle. With IBM hybrid cloud, build once and deploy anywhere.
Cloud computing has undoubtedly changed how enterprise IT is delivered. It has opened the door to compute and storage resources without limits, as well as a wealth of cloud services (e.g., artifcial intelligence, weather data, etc.) for IT administrators to leverage and create the next wave of enterprise innovation. This paper provides a practical guide for IBM Power SystemTM users to gain an understanding of the POWER® cloud portfolio and how to map out a journey to a secure and reliable hybrid multicloud infrastructure.

As enterprise IT readily embraces public cloud technologies, on-premises and private cloud usage continues to grow. On-premises is not going away as a critical part of IT infrastructure strategy; instead, organizations are meshing together various types of IT infrastructure to meet their needs. Organizations that can bring together on-premises with public cloud strategically will be best positioned for operational excellence. Read Guide
In a world of complex security, workload and data hosting needs, enterprise leaders may find that a “one-cloud-fits-all” strategy does not effectively address the needs of their organization. Instead, a more tailored approach is needed to truly transform their digital landscape and provide them with the ability to deploy applications and data in a secure, integrated, flexible and simple-to-manage way.

The best approach to establishing a simplified multicloud strategy, as Forrester explains, is to drill down into your needs: “Get specific about your multicloud plan and goals before jumping into decisions about public or private cloud and complex sourcing algorithms for determining the fate of your application portfolio. What greater purpose does your cloud strategy serve? What specific efficiencies — process and resource utilization — do you seek for your company, and why are those important?”. Read Guide
The enthusiasm for hybrid cloud as an ideal structure for IT environments belies a complicated decision-making process around locations for various types of compute workloads and data stores. Though it may seem that today’s enterprises have more choices than ever for where to host their applications, some workloads must remain on-premises for reasons related to data control, security, compliance and performance. At the same time, competitive pressures are pushing businesses to be more customer-responsive by taking advantage of the perceived scalability, flexibility and agility afforded by off-premises IT architectures. Enterprises must focus on business outcomes while deploying workloads and data in a way, and in a location, that ensures security and integration across increasingly distributed environments.

Many of the problems organizations face today are related to data. Most organizations have too much data, which is growing too quickly, and which is siloed and difficult to consolidate. These challenges create an “insight gap,” where organizations are not able to adequately analyze their data and thus capitalize on its value. Traditional methods of data analysis are not sufficient for many petabyte-scale organizations. However, the promise of self-optimizing analytics powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning offers a path forward, but many organizations don’t know where to get started. Read Guide
