Organizations today are witnessing an increase in data volumes across various industries that need addressing to maintain a differentiated data management practice and stay competitive. The cloud offers capabilities to address any data management need; however, not all workloads can migrate to the cloud easily. This could be due to legacy application dependencies residing on-premises, data residency regulations or low-latency computation needs, such as in healthcare, financial and manufacturing industries.
Read on to discover:
- Constraints that keep data tied to on-premises environments
- Why companies should embrace hybrid data management practice
- How AWS Outposts meets your hybrid data needs
Data management constraints organizations face
Data residency regulations, low-latency requirements, and complex application migrations are some of the main issues surrounding the management of data. The journey to the cloud also creates challenges for data infrastructure and development teams to design data management models that provide consistent and reliable cloud services on-premises. These challenges can vary depending on the specific industry and operational requirements, but include:
Hybrid cloud benefits
Organizations can deploy cloud infrastructure on-premises, determine data processing priorities, and when ready, migrate towards the cloud.
1. Cloud capabilities on-premises
Amazon EC2 instances featuring Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors brings the same cloud capabilities on-premises.
2. Seamless migration to the cloud
Build an application once and deploy it in the cloud, on-premises, or in a hybrid architecture with consistent performance.
3. Accelerated modernization
Companies can accelerate the adoption of cloud services on-premises across teams.
4. Focus on what matters
Reduce the time, resources, operational risk, and maintenance downtime required for managing IT infrastructure, giving you the ability to focus on what differentiates your business.
AWS offers a hybrid solution to meet data management needs
AWS Outposts catalog includes options supporting the latest generation Intel powered EC2 instance types with or without local instance storage. Organizations can choose from a range of pre-validated Outposts configurations offering a mix of EC2 and EBS capacity which are designed to meet a variety of data management needs.
AWS Outposts options:
- I/O optimized
Innovate with AWS
Healthcare use case:
Medical professionals manually collect structured data to store and analyze in vital fields such as cancer staging, medical/family history and patient-reported symptoms. AWS Cloud services automates data collection, where using machine learning inference models amplify data processing and extraction of valuable insights. AWS provides the tools, services and APIs to deliver real-time video analytics and pattern matching, while delivering on-premises flexibility and access to cloud capabilities when needed.
Finance use case:
Financial or government institutions that need to comply to specific data regulations use hybrid cloud to meet their contractual obligations with their customers and demonstrate compliance with legal policies. AWS Outposts allow these organizations to maintain data visibility, process sensitive data locally, including collecting local cache and filtering, and when needed connect to Local Zones or send it to AWS Region.
Security use case:
Companies that are interested in using Outposts to run physical security environments, such as video surveillance, badging systems or security systems, can build and run these workflows on Outposts, archiving relevant data to S3/Glacier within the AWS Region for forensic analysis.
Getting started with AWS
With a consistent set of infrastructure, services, tools, and APIs, AWS simplifies your data management and data migration process, reducing the effort and complexity involved. Leverage the latest Intel technology innovations to accelerate modernization at your edge too.

Enterprises are rapidly adopting the cloud for greater agility and cost savings. However, they often find that some applications need to be re-architected or “”modernized”” before they can be moved to the cloud. Others need to remain on-premise due to low-latency or data processing requirements. As a result, enterprises are looking to hybrid cloud architectures to integrate their on-premises and cloud operations to support a broad spectrum of hybrid use cases, such as data center extension, VMware cloud migration, or building and managing applications using a common set of cloud services and APIs across on-premises and cloud environments. In this tech talk, you will learn how you can build your hybrid cloud architecture with AWS. We will cover our extensive portfolio of services that offer seamless integration between your on-premises and cloud environments for any hybrid use case. Learning Objectives: – Discover AWS services that offer seamless integration across on-premises and cloud environments – See how to build the hybrid cloud architecture to support your use case – Learn about new services that bring cloud services on-premises
