Achieving Digital Transformation Using Hybrid Cloud

By: Vikas Grover, Ishu Verma, Praveen Rajagopalan

Overview of this book

Hybrid cloud technology can be leveraged by organizations aiming to build next-gen applications while safeguarding prior technological investments. This book will help you explore different hybrid cloud architectural patterns, whether designing new projects or migrating legacy applications to the cloud. You'll learn about the key building blocks of hybrid cloud enabling you to deploy, manage, and secure applications and data while porting the workloads between environments without rebuilding. Further, you’ll explore Kubernetes, GitOps, and Layer 3/7 services to reduce operational complexity. You'll also learn about nuances of security and compliance in hybrid cloud followed by the economics of hybrid cloud. You’ll gain a deep understanding of the concepts with use cases from telecom 5G and industrial manufacturing, giving you a glimpse into real industry problems resolved by hybrid cloud, and unlocking millions of dollars of opportunities for enterprises. By the end of this book, you'll be well-equipped to design and develop efficient hybrid cloud strategies, lead conversations with senior IT and business executives, and succeed in hybrid cloud implementation or transformation opportunities.

Compliance and governance

We have systematically looked at securing every component of the hybrid cloud architecture so far. As discussed earlier in the Protection of data section, data governance is the set of rules, practices, and processes put in place to provide oversight of data security and help the business adhere to its compliance requirements. Besides preventing unauthorized access to infrastructure and data, all businesses have the responsibility to protect the data privacy of their consumers. This is especially true in regulated industries such as public sectors, finance, and healthcare. Failure to do so comes at a huge price for a business.

Let’s explain compliance using a framework to define some key components of it. We discussed some of these components in earlier sections of this chapter:

  • Governance: A set of rules that defines the access and control of all resources and data in the hybrid cloud environment.
  • Change control: Following the principle...
