Benefits of a Consistent Hybrid Cloud

An Excerpt from the IDC White paper: “Benefits of the Consistent Hybrid Cloud: A Total Cost of Ownership Analysis of the Dell Technologies Cloud.”

Enterprises typically adopt a mix of public and private clouds, each having a distinct set of advantages that are optimal for the specific needs of the targeted workloads.

The lack of consistency across platforms results in a set of disconnected processes, platforms, and tools within the organization, increasing the complexity of managing deployments across the cloud platforms. In addition, the differences across platforms result in diverging skill sets and training needs, as organizations upgrade their competencies. All these translate to additional management and manpower costs and increased total cost of ownership (TCO).


Without addressing these gaps, multi-cloud strategies may prove ineffective at scale and limit innovation, as enterprises find themselves burdened with incompatible silos of infrastructure and higher operational expenses. An IDC survey of 500 enterprise IT organizations with hybrid cloud environments revealed that this lack of consistency across cloud platforms is a top challenge.
