As hybrid cloud adoption continues to rise, VMware Cloud Foundation offers an ideal solution for businesses looking to migrate, bringing together workloads and applications designed to run both traditionally and on the cloud.

While the pandemic plays a significant role as a catalyst for the digitalization of businesses, organizations that started their digital transformation journey before the pandemic also realized the importance of being agile in this period. While adaptation increases in almost all technology areas, we see that cloud infrastructure, information security, and network architecture investments gain particular importance.

Global hybrid cloud deployment statistics for 2021

The hybrid cloud research published by NTT in consultation with 950 decision-makers in 2021 reveals eye-opening statistics. According to the report:

  • 90 percent of decision-makers in the IT field state that their companies need more information technology than before the pandemic to continue their operations.
  • Hybrid infrastructures offer advantages. 61 percent of organizations that participated in the study have already migrated to hybrid cloud or using the hybrid cloud in pilot projects.
  • 33% of respondents said they will migrate to a hybrid cloud solution in 12-24 months.

Hybrid cloud boosts efficiency

By integrating existing IT infrastructures with the cloud environment, hybrid cloud provides scalability, agility, and security advantages. Thus, it increases the competitiveness of enterprises. It ensures business continuity and maintains efficiency in disaster situations. The research also presents interesting data on this topic:

  • 33 percent of the organizations stated that the speed of application and service provision has increased with hybrid cloud.
  • 41 percent of enterprises want more efficiency in their IT operations, and this data provides clues about the accelerated migration to hybrid cloud.

Uses of hybrid cloud

Hybrid cloud solutions also attract attention because they can be used in various areas, including application modernization and data center environments. Businesses using hybrid cloud solutions can transfer their applications and workloads to the cloud to utilize container technology for traditional workloads. In addition, it is possible to develop cloud-native applications designed to work in the cloud. A 2019 study by 451 Research reveals that 95 percent of new enterprise applications are cloud-native. Another prominent use of hybrid cloud is modernizing the data center infrastructure with a software-based approach.

Companies discovering the application areas of hybrid cloud also want to know which functions they can benefit from. The hybrid cloud offers a wide range of options, including both private and public cloud functions. For example:

  • Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) forms the main infrastructure of hybrid cloud platforms, offers servers, storage units, network, management functions, and allows them to be easily scaled.
  • It is possible to develop cloud-native applications and workloads thanks to its compatibility with containerized workloads.
  • You can create a separate security policy for any applications and workloads running on the hybrid cloud, encrypt and isolate sensitive to protect against cyber-attacks.
  • The hybrid cloud also facilitates the creation of consistent infrastructures. All applications and workloads can run in a consolidated manner, whether on the private or public cloud.
