VMware Hybrid Cloud: Accelerate Your Time to Value
Hybrid cloud computing can maximize the value and balance the use of internal assets and external services (e.g., deploying services internally that could also be deployed to public cloud services when the internal capacity is available) while enabling better scalability. Businesses are looking for a more flexible IT framework that can adapt to today's rapidly changing and global environment. Business teams striving to move quickly into new markets-and launch new products and services-are demanding more from IT organizations that have traditionally focused on avoiding downtime, ensuring security and compliance, and holding down costs. The need for faster, more cost-effective access to IT resources has created a healthy tension between business teams and IT, driving both to look for new and better solutions.
