Hybrid and private cloud capabilities are desired by organizations that want to keep some of their computing requirements out of the cloud and controlled by the organization. The need for a cohesive set of capabilities that are well integrated comes with a variety of challenges. Therefore, it is imperative that current state is understood and the benefits of different types of hybrid, private, and public cloud computing are considered as a part of designing a longer-term blueprint.
Considerations should include:
- Regulatory/data sovereignty
- Disconnected and edge requirements.
- Need for customization.
- Supply chain and inflation
- Power costs
