GovLoop Academy (GLA) Course: How to Deploy Hyperconverged Infrastructures 

Hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) isn’t exactly the easiest of topics to master for government agencies. In fact, knowing what HCI is and how to integrate it with a current cloud strategy can be quite complex.

In an effort to simplify HCI, we created a 10-minute, interactive course that you can take on your own time, for free.

Enroll in this course to get a better understanding of HCI, HCI requirements for success in government, and best practices for operational success.

GovLoop Academy (GLA) Course: How to Move to Hybrid Cloud

Enroll in this 10-minute, self-paced online course for a better understanding of hybrid cloud computing. In three lessons, we’ll define hybrid cloud, differentiate the model from other computing models, and discuss the benefits that hybrid cloud can bring to government. Then, we will define the strategies, including data fabrics and policies, you’ll need to effectively plan a transition to hybrid cloud.

After taking this course, participants will be able to:

  • Define hybrid cloud computing
  • Identify the necessary components of a hybrid cloud transition plan

Industry Perspective: How to Move Seamlessly to a Hybrid Cloud

The federal government maintains one of the largest computing infrastructures in the world, with each agency responsible for building out its IT backbone as needed, which resulted in a large dependence on physical data centers.

In fact, in 2016, 75% of budgeted IT spend went towards operations and maintenance of traditional data centers. This means there was little money left to modernize and develop infrastructures to accommodate tech advancements.

Download this new report to learn how a hybrid cloud solution – a combination of public cloud offerings, private cloud and on-premise technologies – can better match federal agency needs and how to execute the move to hybrid smoothly.
