This week, I’m continuing with part 4 of a series of blogs I am writing about hybrid cloud and systems management. I’ve laid out three types of hybrid cloud:
- Common Platform – Where the base infrastructure and virtualization platform are the same, allowing the common use of existing management tools and processes.
- Common Applications/APIs – Where the end applications or application APIs are the same, allowing common applications to be developed across different platforms.
- Common Management – Where the management tools have the capability to manage all the different environments, with a common interface and process.
In part 3, I talked about the idea of a common platform and how VMware and AWS are providing a great example of that type of hybrid cloud.
