The cloud needs no introduction. It’s perhaps one of, if not the most, pervasive topics in IT today, and the pace of adoption of cloud-based technologies is rapidly increasing. However, in almost all environments, there are workloads that have and will most likely remain on-premises for the foreseeable future. This reality has become known as hybrid IT: migrating some infrastructure to the cloud, while continuing to maintain some critical services on site.
This journey towards hybrid IT is changing the face of the IT profession. IT professionals in the hybrid IT era must transcend traditional roles, possessing not only deep understanding of enterprise networks, data centers and application delivery, but also the ability to manage infrastructures, integrate cloud services and ensure quality-of-service that meet business performance needs for any given service delivered via a cloud provider.
