Five Hybrid Cloud Implementation Pitfalls an SMB can Avoid

Five Hybrid Cloud Implementation Pitfalls an SMB can Avoid
Written by Chris McHale
Published on November 27, 2017

You likely know your company’s IT infrastructure must be upgraded soon. However, you may be avoiding it due to perceived cost or difficulty. The good news is that you don’t have to make large capital expenditures to expand and update your IT infrastructure. Hybrid cloud solutions offer the best of on-premises IT infrastructure alongside cloud-based infrastructure. Depending on your configurations, it might even be more secure than strict on-premises. However, you need the right experience, either in-house or contracted. This is especially true in industries with high compliance and regulatory burdens. Small missteps can mean big headaches for your organization.

Indeed, hybrid cloud solutions come with their own set of complications, of which security is only one. These include

  • Architecture
  • Underestimating Automation
  • Security
  • Provisioning
  • Compliance

Many of our client engagements were born out of the client’s unsuccessful attempts to integrate hybrid cloud on their own and slipping into the dangers outlined above. We work directly with the IT departments of those companies, educating them on the complexities of working with hybrid cloud. We also manage and automate those drudge tasks that consume your IT team’s time and distract them for their more exciting work. Call today and ask for Chris McHale to learn more.
