6 Best Practices for Hybrid IT Environment Success
Many organizations plan to move toward the cloud over time and others may have infrastructure elements that will never be cloud ready.

By satisfying a variety of use cases, hybrid IT is emerging as the operating model for the future allowing organizations to combine cloud and non-cloud environments to achieve the best-fit platform for each workload.
Architecting a robust and reliable hybrid environment involves managing multiple layers of complexity including platform compatibility, vendor responsibility, and security coverage.
