Ensuring the right connectivity between hybrid networks and cloud services can be difficult. BT has provided free advice on how to balance the risk and reward of the cloud

Your infrastructure is transforming from a traditional MPLS approach to a hybrid one, and the borders between your LAN, WAN, and data centre are disappearing with the introduction of software-defined services. 
Connecting from your hybrid network to your cloud services, when your existing infrastructure has been built to support your legacy applications and systems, is a massive task. 

It's important to consider how you deliver the performance you need and how to keep your users happy, both now and in the future. And you'll need to revisit your security approach when you embrace a new cloud strategy.

We offer you the choice to use any of the leading cloud service providers and connectivity to create your hybrid cloud environments. 

We deliver your apps and protect your data, regardless of where they're hosted. We also have the right skills and expertise, whatever cloud deployment you need, now and in the future. 

We can help you implement a successful hybrid approach which ensures application performance, service orchestration and gives you an infrastructure that brings together your LAN, WAN and data centre services.

Extract: 

"There’s so much to think about when it comes to cloud adoption, especially when it’s at scale. Just because a proof of concept works, doesn’t mean it will when scaled up. It’s not just about the blueprint, the technology, or the infrastructure. To really reap the rewards of agility, innovation and cost savings at scale, you need to be the maestro of multi-cloud management. Multiple clouds might be a fact of life, but that doesn’t mean you’re getting the most from them. It’s often difficult to do that when you’re coming from a fragmented starting point, dealing with old technology, as well as deploying new “born in the cloud” applications. What you need on day one, isn’t necessarily what you need next month or next year."
