As cloud migration continues to evolve, Hybrid architectures that enable companies to take advantage of both on-premises and cloud resources are a valuable tool. Hybrid architectures allow for a staged migration where cloud-based cost savings and efficiency are immediately realized for apps and data that are ready to move now, while essential mainframe resources can be moved later. The Hybrid Cloud Architecture on Azure – Portal provides links to all our content on the topic. New content is added as it becomes available.
