Hybrid cloud networking plays big role in development

Multicloud and hybrid cloud networking are complex, but users prefer that complexity remain invisible. In this issue of Network Evolution, read how, now more than ever, network professionals need to understand their options when it comes to creating a hybrid cloud infrastructure to deliver workloads among public and private clouds.

Eliminating the complexity in hybrid cloud networking is no small feat, as technologies continue to move toward ensuring that the user's experience with the network is simple and efficient. Network pros must become more than traditional network engineers and understand how emerging technologies like networking for multicloud access and increased user dependence on mobile devices affect their roles.

Also in this edition, we explore how mobile device trends present networking challenges. Smartphones, tablets and other devices are increasingly used for a wide range of communications applications, from team collaboration to video conferencing. Unified communications vendors see a potential market for their UC-specific apps, but until they're as easy to use as the native apps prepackaged on a mobile device, the market for UC-specific platforms will build slowly.

With mobile device trends and the need to access enterprise resources, application performance management (APM) is making network management more complex. This issue also addresses how enterprises need to develop best practices for integrating APM into their overall network management strategy, getting down to granular levels to identify which devices are connected and who is using them.
