Enterprise organizations want to take advantage of cloud computing but do not want to give up their own datacenters. This suggests a hybrid cloud strategy that is a mix of both public and private clouds. There are a few challenges that must be addressed to succeed with a hybrid cloud: Application complexity - Enterprise applications commonly depend on shared services, including directories and databases, which reside in the on-premise datacenter. These applications must be made to work in the cloud without migrating or duplicating the shared services. IT silos - While the on-premise datacenter and the cloud represent distinct infrastructure environments, care must be taken not to create duplicate tools, processes or teams.
