What make hybrid solutions so compelling
to so many businesses ?
WHAT IS HYBRID CLOUD?
A hybrid cloud is an integrated cloud service utilising both private and public clouds to perform distinct functions within the same organisation.
All cloud computing services should offer certain efficiencies to different degrees but public cloud services are likely to be more cost efficient and scalable than private clouds.
With hybrid cloud, an organisation can maximise their efficiencies by employing public cloud services for all non-sensitive operations, only relying on a private cloud where they require it, with it ensuring that all platforms are seamlessly integrated.
Examples of how Hybrid Clouds can be used
Hybrid cloud models can be implemented in a number of ways:
1. Different cloud providers team up to provide both private and public services as an integrated service,
2. Individual cloud providers offer a complete hybrid package,
3. Organisations who manage their private clouds themselves sign up to a public cloud service, which they then integrate into their infrastructure.
While the efficiency and flexibility of public cloud services are ideal for certain use cases, many businesses have security, compliance, or legacy technology requirements that prevent them from hosting workloads in an off-site, multi-tenant environment. However, with hybrid cloud, companies can store their most sensitive data in on dedicated hardware while simultaneously benefitting from the public cloud’s cost efficiency and on-demand scalability for those workloads that don’t require the same degree of control.
According to our research, a hybrid cloud model mixing dedicated or on-premises resources with cloud services can yield an average reduction in overall IT costs of around 17 %. Hybrid cloud allows businesses to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership and more closely match their cost patterns to their revenue/demand patterns.
Improved Security Capabilities
By combining dedicated and cloud resources, businesses can address many common security and compliance concerns. For example, strict PCI compliance requirements necessitate running payment applications on isolated dedicated hardware. With hybrid cloud, businesses can place sensitive customer data on a dedicated server while running their front-end applications in the public cloud. This allows them to conduct business and transact payments online all within one seamless, agile and secure environment.
