Access "Hybrid cloud: When public and private clouds collide"

Issue Overview

Network Evolution - December 2013 Vol. 4 / No.6

This edition of Network Evolution looks at how companies are mixing old and new technology as they transition to the new technology -- but is it the best approach? For example, very few IT shops will move entirely to running IPv6 networks; instead they’ll manage dual IPv4/IPv6 environments. Alternatively, network managers should look beyond moving from IPv4 to IPv6 and consider redesigning their networks for both IPv6 and SDN.

However, the same kind of phenomenon is playing out in the cloud, where enterprises look to use both private and public cloud. They need tools to help them manage both on-premises and hosted clouds, as well as legacy equipment.

In the end, the trick is in figuring out how to manage the transition to new technology without losing everything. This issue provides insight into how organizations chose to implement new technology -- whether incrementally or all at once -- to help others determine which path is best for them.
