According to TechPro Research, with some 70% of organisations either using or evaluating using a hybrid cloud service. In this article, we’ll share with you the mail benefits of hybrid cloud.
Hybrid cloud combines public (external) and private (internal) cloud services to offer your organisation the best of on- and off-site services.
Public cloud services are available to all organisations via a subscription through third-party providers such as Microsoft and Google. Organisations pay for services as they need them – these include data storage and applications hosted in the cloud.
Private cloud services are internal, on-site solutions that are managed by your organisation’s IT department. They are generally favoured for sensitive data and large, demanding operations such as customer relationship management.
The public and private cloud services are separate entities. Each runs independently of each other. However they are combined by an encrypted bridge, which means they can communicate with each other. In some cases both systems can be monitored with the same toolset.
The best of both worlds
Hybrid cloud allows you to keep your most demanding services and sensitive data on private systems while using the public cloud for running applications.
With a hybrid set-up you will have an on-site infrastructure that is accessible directly rather than having to route it across the public web.
Ability to scale services to business demands
Hybrid cloud offers private in-house cloud infrastructure to cope with regular demand. Then when demand increases during your peak months, ramp up your public cloud service when computing demand exceeds that of your private cloud infrastructure.
