Developing a hybrid cloud strategy is difficult for most organizations as data comes from various units and several applications are required to make use of it. In most cases, organizations are utilizing two or more public cloud providers. The result is more silos, as organizations that do more in the cloud often find data increasingly fragmented and difficult to extract value from.
In addition, most organizations focus their attention on primary data affecting mission-critical workloads while other data that lives in the secondary realm—backup, archiving, test/ dev, and disaster recovery, etc., is siloed, leading to multiple point solutions to manage an increasing amount of data.
This white paper looks at the evolution of these challenges and offers practical advice on ways to store, manage, and move secondary data in hybrid cloud architectures while extracting the hidden value it can provide.
