Hybrid Multi-Cloud

A Cloud-First Strategy Doesn't Just Mean Public Cloud

A cloud-first strategy is easy to say but hard to realise in the face of partner support matrixes, legacy versions, latency restrictions, data sovereignty requirements, and CAPEX budgets. And for those who have become more cloud-native, spanning across more than one provider can appear complex and costly.

Hybrid cloud platforms take the best of both worlds and bring them together. The cost predictability, data sovereignty and legacy workload support of on-premises is combined with the rapid provisioning, incredible scalability and consumption economics of public cloud. This is achieved by abstracting the underlying platforms from the services you provide to the organisation, creating cross-cloud consistency of resources, governance and cost-control. You then have the flexibility to deploy a workload in the right place at the right time, based on its requirements, not the constraints of your systems.


Benefits Of Hybrid Cloud

Combining your in-house resources with cloud solutions will enhance your organisation’s flexibility, upgrade its security posture, and boost business outcomes overall. Here’s how: 

  • Improve Performance and Connectivity

    Hybrid cloud enables greater agility, promotes simplicity, and optimises workflows while provisioning redundancy and maintaining critical business continuity. Additionally, while managing a dispersed workforce, leveraging API integrations with one or more cloud providers will support frictionless access to your data from anywhere.

  • Unlock New Revenue Streams

    Achieve rapid engagement and customer adoption through DataOps best practices. Derive actionable insights and harness the value of your data with the help of machine learning, observability, BI and AIOPS. Use minimum viable models (MVM) to reduce capital expenditures, scale and automate tasks, and address gaps in customer experience.

  • Ensure Compliance and Improved Threat Hunting

    Enhance visibility into vulnerabilities across multiple clouds and on-premise servers. Hybrid cloud can better leverage security frameworks like NIST and segment data based on identity and access management.

  • Streamline Workflows

    Migrating data and apps between native cloud and public cloud services will allow you to transform and modernise fragile applications that might otherwise be obsolete. Custom configurations using microservices, Kubernetes and containerisation enable faster innovation without the need to overhaul hardware, software or application workflows.

Our Approach

Our approach focuses on what you care about - your people, your customers and your applications - and helps you pick the platforms and solutions that enable you to best serve them. We ensure that you have the tools to monitor, optimise and secure these platforms effectively. And we enable business units to take advantage of them on-demand, within the constraints you define.

  • Optimise

    As a full-stack partner, CDW uses DataOps, AIOPS and ML to help you recognise and resolve latency by developing a strategic vision for consolidating and democratising enterprise data.

  • Design

    CDW will refactor and/or replatform application(s) to perform better in the cloud. Cleaning up current code in this manner allows organisations to update otherwise outdated applications with new features, instead of spending time and money to start over.

  • Modernise

    Through App Modernisation, CDW turns monolithic applications into small, manageable microservices, containerising them and easily moving them to the cloud.

  • Accelerate

    While expertly focused on software-defined infrastructure, our service teams can rapidly enable holistic, hybrid solutions to propel your organisation forward.
