What is Hybrid IT Management?
Hybrid IT management is the process of placing individual workloads in optimal environments, and orchestrating operations across on-premises and cloud-based infrastructure.
Hybrid IT management definition
Hybrid IT systems combine in-house data centres with private and/or public clouds. Companies that run applications in multiple environments need to ensure that their various systems are able to work together efficiently. This is the process of hybrid IT management.
Why hybrid IT management?
In some cases, mission-critical legacy applications, data privacy regulations, or similar concerns demand that companies run at least some of their operations in on-prem data centres rather than transitioning fully to cloud-based IT. In other cases, the true costs of running applications in the cloud mean it’s less expensive to run applications on-prem. For these reasons, complex, enterprise-level businesses often need to keep at least a portion of their IT operations in-house. At the same time, moving some applications to the cloud can result in large gains in IT agility and ROI. The right strategy, paired with expert management, can help realise the best of both worlds.
