Hybrid cloud environments combine public cloud services with on-premises infrastructure

Discover the power of Azure HCI Stack, Azure Arc and Dell Technologies components to create your future hybrid cloud strategy/platform.

IT organizations are under tremendous pressure to provide their businesses with innovative capabilities that accelerate digital transformation. Simultaneously, they must maintain existing traditional systems with constrained budgets and reduced staff.

The key to addressing these challenges is to adopt a modern platform infrastructure that can be seamlessly ordered, deployed, maintained, and supported.

Why consider a hybrid cloud strategy ?


Need more computing power?
Or storage space to store inactive data?

With a hybrid cloud model, you choose the cloud solution yourself for each application or challenge.


Location-sensitive, business-critical data on your on-premise infrastructure, which only you have access to.

In addition, disaster recovery and backups are more secure and less expensive in a hybrid cloud.


New infrastructure is expensive.
What's more, it's difficult to estimate the resources you will need at any given time.

A hybrid cloud allows you to scale up or down as needed.

Some Business Reasons for a Hybrid Cloud Strategy


  • Regulatory and data sovereignty

  • Low latency and edge workloads

  • Application and datacenter modernization

  • Business continuity and resilience

  • Freedom to use private/on-prem and public cloud

Some Technical Use Cases for a Hybrid Cloud Strategy
  • Implement a secure software Defined Infrastructure

  • High Performance latency sensitive applications

  • Remote/Branch Office infrastructure & Virtual Desktop

  • Infrastructure refresh to Azure Stack HCI & still support legacy applications on-prem

  • Tightly integrated Kubernetes Container Services

Our vision and hands-on approach on a future-proof hybrid cloud platform

The first step of the cloud “journey” starts with a solid cloud strategy and a thorough discovery and assessment.
The Proximus Cloud Application Assessment methodology is a standardized 5-step approach that helps making an informed decision on the best migration and onboarding strategy for each asset and business application.
Based on the outcome of this assessment and aligned with the business strategy and goals of the customer, we propose a pragmatic approach and plan to deploy a hybrid cloud platform to facilitate the digital transformation challenges of the customer.
Here is an example of cloud infrastructure :

Why choose Azure Hybrid Cloud ?

The IT Customer “Unburdening”
Workplace-as-a-Service with Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop & Microsoft Endpoint Manager

An Azure Virtual Desktop provides a fully scalable Windows experience for all employees. This means that all Microsoft 365 applications and other applications are fully optimized to any device and at any time. Client management is done through Microsoft Endpoint Manager (and therefore Intune), and this as a “managed service” to the customer.

Hybrid Computing Environment-as-a-Service with Microsoft HCI & Arc 
The Dell Azure Stack HCI (on-prem Hyper Converged Infrastructure) solution combined with the Microsoft HCI Operating system, Microsoft Arc and the Azure Public Cloud is the ideal hybrid cloud solution for customers who want the “best of both worlds.”
End-to-end Managed Services portfolio

For medium-sized companies, Proximus SpearIT offers this solution in a fully “managed service” model, including all on-prem DC and network components, but also the necessary connectivity and public cloud components and services, in combination with the already mentioned Workplace-as-a-Service.
