What Is Hybrid Clouds Infrastructure Management Service

Azure in Your Local Data Center and get the consistency and flexibility to innovate anywhere, across on-premises, multicloud and edge environments

The Azure cloud provides extensive hybrid cloud management functionality, which extends to your on-premise data center. These include migration tools, networking tools, single sign-on (SSO) and identity management, and even hybrid storage devices that can be deployed on-premises.

Hybrid clouds also enable you to segregate how and where data is shared and avoid having all your data stored on one public cloud. Using a hybrid cloud, you can take advantage of the scalability and flexibility of a public cloud while maintaining the security of business-critical applications and data.

Azure Hybrid Cloud Features

To help you achieve the benefits of a hybrid cloud, Azure offers services to help you connect your private cloud with their public services. These services include a variety of helpful features.

  • Run applications seamlessly across on-premises, cloud, and edge environments
  • Migrate, manage, and analyze data across your hybrid cloud
  • Build a highly available, fast, secure hybrid network
  • Manage access with a single identity platform

Overview of a Hybrid Clouds Infrastructure Management Service

EPC Group’s hybrid SharePoint 2019 environments architecture allows for flexibility and provide for the capability to store sensitive and highly confidential content on-premise within your own data center while storing collaboration or non-sensitive data within a public cloud such as Office 365, SharePoint Online, Microsoft Azure or AWS.

The issues that have continued to compile in the news with the NSA’s IT administrator Edward Snowden’s leakage of classified data has undoubtedly hurt the reputation of the public cloud. The NSA’s PRISM data mining program has also piled on concerns around organizations asking themselves, “How safe is the cloud?”


EPC Group has extensive experience in working with complex environments and understands the key considerations and elements that must be planned for as well as architected and implemented. These complex environmental considerations include those such as:

  • Multitenancy requirements within your organization
  • Office 365 issues when a user goes outside of IT to create a new “environment”
  • Multiple farms and the seamless security and identity management elements required: (i.e. Azure AD, FBA, SAML claims, extranets)
  • EPC Group works with clients regarding regulatory and compliance issues with PHI, PII, Safe Harbor, intellectual property and new EU Laws
