VLOG #52 – The road to a successful hybrid cloud strategy

If you wanted to be a professional runner what would you say is most important? Endurance or strength training? What about nutrition, sleep, or shoes, do they matter? Of course, all of these dimensions for running matter, if you want to be successful. You might be wondering, what does this have to do with hybrid cloud? If you want to know, watch the video and read on.

Thanks to my position as a Sr. Product Marketing Manager representing Azure Stack Hub and Azure Stack Edge, I’m very fortunate to talk to some of the largest enterprises in the world about hybrid cloud. They differ widely in their approach to cloud, but there are a few things many of them share, like a hybrid cloud strategy. Depending on whom you talk to in an enterprise, they will focus on the hybrid capabilities for the specific environment they own. For example, a business application owner might just focus on hybrid capabilities for Kubernetes and that is good enough for him, but for the whole company to be successful they need to consider all areas of their environment. Otherwise, it’s like buying the best running shoes but ignoring the other dimensions such as exercise, nutrition, and sleep.

I hope this video demonstrates what dimension you need to discuss when creating, updating your hybrid cloud strategy, so your setup for success.
