Event Overview

The enterprise IT community has been talking about the shift away from on-premise environments for years, and now the days of single-vendor cloud architectures are numbered, as well.

It’s hard to argue with the benefits of the public cloud: scalability, flexibility, cost optimization, better security options, and more. To take it a step further, a hybrid approach allows enterprises to optimize their IT environments and take advantage of the best of both worlds, which is especially important for highly regulated industries, while multi-cloud computing has the added benefit of skirting vendor lock-in.

To define, a hybrid cloud environment uses a mixture of on-premise, private cloud, and public cloud to manage data and applications. A multi-cloud strategy, which falls under the hybrid cloud umbrella, simply involves leveraging more than one cloud provider. The reality is that most of today’s modern enterprises need a hybrid- or multi-cloud strategy to effectively manage their infrastructure. They typically have some applications built and managed in the cloud while other applications continue to run on-premise.

In the race to deliver the best customer experiences, companies must build and modernize applications faster and more efficiently than ever before. New container-based “cloud-native” tools and services have emerged to serve this need, but enterprises need more than a collection of open-source technologies. They need consistent ways to develop, secure, and manage apps at scale across their growing hybrid cloud environments.

Anthos offers a unified model for computing, networking, and even service management across clouds and on-premises managed through a centralized control plane. Anthos reduces business risk by simplifying multi-cloud management and makes it a reality for enterprise customers.

To make the vision of a hybrid cloud come true companies will depend on reliable partners to guide them on their digital journey. The Atos + Google Cloud partnership is ushering the world’s biggest brands to digital success by combining Google’s unparalleled cloud technology with Atos’ proven understanding of complex transformations.
