Get the Best of Both Cloud Structures with Hybrid Cloud

Our hybrid cloud capabilities help you weave cloud into the fabric of your business, capturing its benefits while maintaining the control you need. But before we explain that, let’s help define a hybrid cloud and why it’s critical to your business.

What is a hybrid cloud?

A hybrid cloud is a "best of both worlds" solution that seeks to combine the benefits of public and private clouds:

  • The biggest advantage to harnessing public cloud is its near-limitless scalability for both on-demand and no-demand capital expenditures. This type of cloud structure is run by cloud computing firms and is accessible to any consumer. 
  • Private cloud on the other hand is used solely by a specific organization and is owned and managed by the same organization. Private cloud offers more control, security, and transparency compared to public cloud.
  • Finally, hybrid cloud is a distributed cloud computing architecture where an enterprise supplements its own private cloud with tools from a public cloud, thus creating a platform that integrates both cloud systems.

Why use a hybrid cloud?

Workload Variety

Workload Variety

Almost all businesses and organizations support a wide variety of IT workloads that typically contain highly sensitive information and procedures. A commonly used hybrid strategy is to deploy sensitive data and applications on private cloud servers while outsourcing lower risk or non-confidential workloads to public clouds that tend to be more cost-effective.

Spikes in Demand

Spikes in Demand

Flexible hybrid cloud infrastructures can be set up to accommodate spikes in demand. The size of a private cloud is designed to support normal service demand levels. Hybrid cloud allows for a process called "cloud bursting" to accommodate occasional demand spikes that would be better suited for the public cloud’s capabilities.

Optimizing Your Business-critical Workloads and Data

An estimated 92% of companies use hybrid cloud solutions.

Recent studies have shown that companies who invest in cloud systems are doing better financially, producing an average revenue growth that is twice greater than the organizations that do not. Over time, these dynamic systems allow you to continually optimize, scale, and innovate while delivering the benefits of speed, regulatory compliance, performance, data gravity, and recouping existing investments.

Hybrid Cloud Roadmap

Transitioning to a cloud system may seem like an easy move, however, there are many layers to the platform and many ways to implement the system incorrectly. The options may appear unlimited, but not fully understanding the consequences of each layer may send your company down an inefficient and costly route from which recovery will likely be pricey.
