Unlock the benefits of hybrid IT

As organizations work to balance on‐premises IT services with moving to the public cloud, a logical middle ground has emerged—the hybrid cloud. This architecture model combines public and private cloud into one cohesive environment, allowing you to take advantage of pay‐per‐use pricing, the scalability and flexibility of cloud computing, and the security of dedicated hardware.

While a hybrid cloud architecture can offer many business benefits, it often creates complexity and operational friction, slowing your digital transformation efforts if your IT staff cannot dedicate time or needs to gain expertise.

Bring cloud consumption models and added flexibility to your enterprise

The challenges of migrating workloads to a public cloud environment are vast. However, the benefits are just as significant: decreased deployment time, less infrastructure complexity, enhanced integration, mobility, automation, automatic backup, and a pay-as-you-consume model are just the beginning.

CBTS can help you break through the challenges and deliver the right hybrid IT solutions to meet your business goals. We can provide dedicated cloud services, colocation facilities, and advanced infrastructure solutions—all implemented with deep security expertise.

HYBRID IT

What is hybrid IT?

A hybrid infrastructure, or hybrid cloud, is an IT environment comprised of a mix of on-premises data centers, private clouds, and public clouds.

Hybrid cloud computing empowers enterprises to strategically deploy sensitive workloads in an on-premises cloud environment while utilizing a third-party public cloud provider for less critical resources. This approach harnesses the advantages of both private and public cloud models, enabling organizations to optimize their cloud infrastructure.

Aligning hybrid IT with business outcomes

Organizations opt for hybrid IT for various reasons, driven by the ultimate goal of making sound business decisions. Hybrid IT offers companies the best of both worlds—the flexibility of a hyperscale environment and the security of storing mission-critical data on private cloud infrastructure. Simultaneously, power-intensive processes can be moved to public cloud services, optimizing energy consumption. A well-designed hybrid infrastructure can swiftly yield returns on upfront investments.

Cost savings is one of the main reasons that companies decide to migrate to a cloud environment.
