With the ambient credo to “do more with less, with a better agility and time to market”, IT inevitably becomes a service provider for its enterprise and need to run like a business. The undertaking also requires a step further in the way the IT delivers its services to its customers: internal businesses and beyond. IT has indeed to deliver the services in an industrialized way for greater speed and lower cost. This requires increasing their overall core infrastructure operational maturity in two main areas.

The first one aims at improving the management of their own on-premises IT landscape and traditional services by evolving towards a private cloud, i.e. an optimized and more automated way to provision and operate (a catalog of) services for businesses. The second one consists in enhancing their service offerings by utilizing off-premises public cloud augmentations (for acceptable cases of use) as (lower-cost) add-ons to existing services in the catalog.

The combination and interaction of these two cloud paradigms results in the emergence of the hybrid cloud which meets the demands and the expectations of the business. Hybrid cloud spans the two above implementations. A service request can be instantiated in either implementation, or moved from one to another, or can horizontally grow between the two implementations (cloud bursting for instance).

This paper discusses how Microsoft can help your organization achieve a successful hybrid cloud strategy and present the enabling technologies from on-premises, cross-premises, and off-premises implementation of (parts of) the services. Several typical patterns and common scenarios are illustrated throughout this paper.
