Hybrid

You probably didn’t go into the IT field thinking you were a thrill seeker, but you’ve no doubt found yourself on a wild ride. IT evolves at breakneck speeds, and the companies who don’t keep up risk getting left in the dust, especially as data, AI, and other revolutionary technologies come to the forefront.

The challenge of modernizing your IT is that, while doing so typically lowers your costs in the long run, there’s no denying it can burden your time and resources in the near term. The trick is modernizing smartly to avoid extensive overhauls in the future – thinking in terms of modular updates and future-proof design.

Hybrid Multi-Cloud Makes It Possible

There’s never been a better approach to support low-cost, future-proof tech modernization projects than hybrid multi-cloud. A hybrid multi-cloud approach lets you modernize your tech in a piecemeal way without ditching your legacy investments. You can get access to the latest technologies to support AI and big data while still running processes on your 5-year-old on-premise servers when it makes sense.

But truly understanding the benefits of hybrid multi-cloud means understanding how hosting is evolving, how hybrid multi-cloud works, and why it’s the closest thing to a silver bullet the hosting industry has produced in recent years.

What Is Hybrid Multi-Cloud?

A hybrid multi-cloud architecture combines any type of resources across multiple vendors (including Codero, AWS, Azure, and your own on-premise tech) utilized for all of your processes and applications. It may mean connecting public and private clouds; bare metal to multiple clouds; clouds of the same type across multiple hosting providers; or any combination thereof.

Not only does it ensure you can add, remove, and rearrange pieces of your infrastructure when you need to, it enables you to step into your modernization project bit by bit without having to do an extensive IT overhaul.

Moreover, hybrid multi-cloud IT ensures that each department within your company has the resources they need to get their own jobs done.

For example, a media streaming company might serve its content from high-performance servers at Codero, but leverage AWS Glacier for long-term storage and Microsoft Office 365 for employee co-working.

This approach gives you the best of all worlds, while giving you a future-proof infrastructure so you can continue to modernize as technology evolves.
