Closing the loop: The new Microsoft Hybrid Cloud for Enterprise Architects poster

At the March 2016 CAAB Webinar, I previewed a draft of a new hybrid cloud poster and got your initial impressions. I am happy to announce that the Microsoft Hybrid Cloud for Enterprise Architects poster has just been published.


This new poster steps you through:

  • Understanding the common elements and layers of hybrid cloud scenarios across Microsoft's cloud offerings, including Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Intune, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.
  • Examples of hybrid scenarios for Office 365, including Skype for Business, SharePoint, and Exchange Server.
  • The elements of an Azure PaaS app.
  • Line of business applications hosted in a cross-premises virtual network in Azure IaaS.


You can download this multi-page poster in PDF or Visio format. You can easily print the pages of this poster on tabloid format paper (also known as 11×17, ledger, or A3 format).

A big thank you to CAAB member Gabrielle DeCrescenzo, an Account Manager in the Cardinal Solutions Group, for her feedback on the draft version of the poster!
