Hello again! This is part 3 of a series of blogs I am writing about hybrid cloud and systems management. In the previous part, I talked about how hybrid cloud was clearly underdefined in the industry and I laid out three specific types of hybrid cloud. Those types were:
- 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.
