Hybrid IT

Streamlining Data Management for Hybrid IT

As digital transformation ramps up, firms like yours are adopting a cloud-first strategy for new apps and their data. The hybrid infrastructure needs a data management platform. How else will you be able to gain the advantages of your investments: move, manage and use data the way you need—across on-premises, public and private cloud, and virtualized infrastructures?

Helping your business become more nimble and cost-efficient was the goal when you planned your hybrid IT strategy. You’re spinning up clouds and shifting workloads and data across your infrastructure. It’s essential that your enterprise cloud strategy include plans for protecting and managing cloud data as it’s moved, managed and used for business gain.

The Evolution of Data Protection for Hybrid Virtual Environments

Tackling data spread across hybrid environments

By nature, hybrid requires comprehensive approaches. Your critical data lives both in traditional locations and across multiple cloud platforms. It’s too hard to manage, integrate and secure data if you’re using multiple products and many manual, error-prone steps. How can you streamline data management in a hybrid IT setting?


By 2020, 68 percent of the cloud workloads will be in public cloud data centers.1

Hybrid data management from a single platform
