At the IDC Hybrid Cloud Summit 2017, 60 attendees focused on lectures and workshops to identify the right path for implementing your cloud strategies. And this orientation was very much called for: according to IDC, many IT decision-makers are still unsure as to which basic technologies, architectures and platforms they should decide to build their hybrid clouds. New open-source standards, management approaches and ecosystems establish themselves increasingly in the market, and IT managers are simply overwhelmed by the selection. They need support in order to avoid typical pitfalls – aka: vendor lock-in.
In order for their cloud strategy to emerge, companies need the hybrid cloud platform – this was a conclusion of the DARZ workshop at the IDC Hybrid Cloud Summit 2017. In addition, DARZ is addressing the issue of Critical Infrastructures (KRITIS). Hybrid cloud solutions help cope with the new challenges of the IT Security Act, as Lars Göbel explains in the video interview with speicherguide.de: bit.ly/2lPoEXr

In the DARZ workshop, the advantages of a real hybrid cloud were clear: complete data mobility between private and public cloud as well as colocation, without complex data migration. This is because the offerings, referred to as the hybrid cloud, often strictly separate between the storage levels within and outside a company.
DARZ, on the other hand, realized the advantages in the first real hybrid cloud architecture, based on NetApp Private Storage. It enables the customer to achieve a high degree of security and control over the data in a private cloud while maintaining the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of a public cloud.
