Federal agencies have followed a Cloud First strategy since 2010. Recently revised and rebranded as Cloud Smart, the government agenda envisions migrating applications from conventional data centers to public or private clouds. What’s needed is an enterprise-wide view of the entire application ecosystem – precisely what hybrid cloud provides. Hybrid enables federal IT to maximize cloud investment, optimize compute and storage resources, and ultimately realize the full operational and cost savings potential of the cloud. This thought-leadership whitepaper reviews the advantages of a hybrid cloud for federal agencies, the obstacles to look out for, and how to ultimately drive hybrid cloud’s promise and potential.
