HPE GreenLake Bundles: Hybrid Cloud As-A-Service Made Affordable and Accessible
According to a Techaisle study, hybrid cloud adoption is the highest among midsize companies. At 49%, they occupy the lion’s share of hybrid cloud adoption. Small businesses trail behind closely at 35%, and the large businesses account for only 20% of the hybrid cloud adoption.
These numbers clearly have a story to tell. Hybrid cloud adoption allows businesses to continue to leverage their legacy systems while taking advantage of the cloud’s benefits. For instance, hybrid cloud services offer businesses the seamless scalability, flexibility, and cost savings of the cloud infrastructure, alongside the enhanced security that comes with on-premises infrastructure.
For small businesses, it also lets them test out the cloud before embarking on cloud transformation projects. For large businesses, a hybrid cloud strategy keeps the costs low vis-à-vis the cloud-only option and gives them a greater degree of control over their data storage.
Businesses of all sizes benefit from a hybrid cloud strategy. However, the above-mentioned report indicates that hybrid cloud adoption increases when businesses transition from small size to midsize. Evidently, this is not a question of intent; the intent to transition to hybrid cloud exists, but small businesses, in particular, are unable to do so. Why?
Challenges to Hybrid Cloud Adoption
The challenges facing small businesses to hybrid cloud adoption are many. However, most of them can be broadly classified into two groups:
1. Skill and Expertise Gaps
Hybrid cloud brings together tools, technologies, and tech stacks that don’t necessarily “speak” to each other. Compatibility issues are common, and resolving them requires expertise. Most small businesses do not have the skills and expertise needed to do that and rely on hybrid cloud providers. Naturally, that’s not an ideal situation for any business. Lack of in-house expertise throws up several problems with hybrid cloud adoption:
- Compliance issues
- Lack of readiness for data migration
- Governance problems
- Lack of redundancy
- Data security
- Poor visibility and control
- Poorly defined SLAs
2. Financial Challenges
Managing costs in the initial stages can be challenging for businesses foraying into the hybrid cloud. Staff, who are used to consuming on-premise infrastructure, may inadvertently end up consuming too many cloud resources if they are not careful. Overutilized cloud capacity and burgeoning costs are common issues with cloud adoption, and they hold true for hybrid cloud services adoption too.
