As agencies deepen their investment in the cloud, they need to make strategic choices about which applications and data move the cloud and which stay on-premises. While the public cloud offers appealing benefits, it’s not always the best choice. In the case of some mission-critical applications or sensitive data, a private cloud is a better option, making it easier to manage risk and to comply with regulations and policies. As a result, most agencies are moving to a hybrid cloud environment.

But how can agencies create an environment that is robust enough to meet the performance requirements of the hybrid cloud? This three-part course will discuss the role of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) as the foundation for an on-premise, cloud-ready environment. We will provide an overview of how HCI works and how it simplifies cloud deployment, and we will offer best practices for putting HCI in practice.
