In our experience a hybrid approach works well for most customers. Hybrid Cloud is an orchestration of Private and Public Clouds that puts the workload where it makes commercial sense. We use an HP CloudSystem orchestration layer to provide cloud services both on existing IT infrastructure and as an on-ramp to the public cloud. This gives our customers the ability to maximize the utilization of their existing assets, as well as take advantage of external cloud services as required. HP CloudSystem enables customers to consume and control cloud services from multiple providers, with the ability to manage all workloads though a single interface.
The HP CloudSystem provides an open platform with a no lock-in architecture. The service marketplace allows administrators to present, manage, and consume private, public, and traditional IT services.
Through this use of consistent definition, delivery, and management of IT services, our customers can have the best of both worlds – maximize the return on investment on current assets, and leverage consumption based service models as needed.
