How to Ensure a Successful Hybrid Cloud Enterprise Email Deployment

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2016-02-18

We at eWEEK write about the growing trend toward deploying hybrid clouds virtually every day. A hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment that uses a mix of on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services with orchestration between the platforms. By allowing workloads to move across private and public clouds as computing needs and costs change, a hybrid cloud gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options. However, what we don't often discuss is how email—yes, it's still the killer business app—can be run optimally inside a hybrid system. A hybrid email deployment segregates mail streams and is readily able to identify data dependencies and integration points with other in-house systems for each mail stream. It is important to determine which would be best served by an on-premises email infrastructure versus a cloud delivery provider. Based on research and industry input from Phillip Merrick, CEO of email services specialist SparkPost, we offer guidelines on how to ensure a successful hybrid cloud enterprise email deployment.
