Here are three ways government agencies can facilitate and accelerate their move to hybrid cloud.

The Transformative Potential of Hybrid Cloud Within Government Agencies

Federal cloud spending is reaching all-time highs, with many organizations investing in hybrid cloud models. This environment uses a combination of on-premises, private cloud and public cloud services, and presents an ideal solution for agencies wanting to balance agility with security.

Notably, hybrid cloud enables users to select best-of-breed components from multiple computing environments and bring them together into a moveable technology stack. This allows users to automatically deploy workloads to different, targeted clouds.

Despite these benefits, many agencies are daunted by the lack of an industry standard for hybrid cloud migrations. Organizations using on-premises equipment often aren’t sure where to start. Some may be unfamiliar with open source tools that can expedite their migration and aggregate data to the cloud. Additionally, some lack an understanding of the security and policy considerations of public and multicloud environments.

However, most agencies have observed the private sector’s embrace of hybrid cloud and multicloud, and see it as inevitable. Because of this, many organizations have incorporated hybrid cloud or multicloud into their IT roadmaps, but are at different points along their journeys, with a large proportion remaining unclear how to get there.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at three ways government agencies can facilitate and accelerate their move to hybrid cloud.
