The success of hybrid clouds is driving migration towards a multi-cloud architecture. IDC goes so far as to predict that by 2020 “over 90 percent of enterprises will use multiple cloud services and platforms.” But moving from an existing legacy infrastructure to a hybrid or multi-cloud environment can create challenges on both a technical and human level.
As enterprises transition to cloud environments, network connectivity, which used to rely on physically connections, changes in nature. Core network services remain principally the same but they must learn to communicate with the network in a different way.
As Infoblox Product Marketing Manager David Veneski explains, “The data center network is ‘stretched’ when hybrid or multi-cloud is employed, but its functions remain largely unchanged. The scale of the network and the complexity of management grow.”
This eBrief will look at how the network core changes in a hybrid or multi-cloud environment. It will dive into how enterprises can leverage existing infrastructure and processes throughout the transition. Finally, it will examine the significance of service portability in these new environments.
