Todays business pressures require IT resources to be a cost-effective mixture of public and private cloud resources. Consequently, IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals need to rethink how they design, deploy, and manage IT services in a way that seamlessly combines internal resources and public cloud platforms into a single platform. Under the old static IT model, security, reliability, and scalability have been fundamental pieces to connecting business resources; however, as IT shifts to creating a hybrid cloud platform, questions arise as to what new demands will be placed on the network.

To uncover what changes had to be made to the network and what IT decision-makers prioritize when evaluating cloud networks Juniper Networks commissioned Forrester Consulting in January 2014 to examine its industry data on cloud and to pair the findings with a custom study of IT decision-makers who have experience tying together public and private infrastructures.
