The Hybrid Cloud Explained

A hybrid cloud deployment enables organisations to deploy a private cloud environment to host sensitive or critical workloads, and also use a third-party public cloud provider to host less-critical resources.

A hybrid cloud configuration can offer organisations the following features:

Scalability; whilst private clouds do offer a certain level of scalability depending on their configurations (whether they are hosted internally or externally for example), cloud hosting will offer scalability with fewer boundaries because resource is pulled from the larger cloud infrastructure.

Cost efficiencies; public clouds are likely to offer more significant economies of scale and so greater cost efficiencies, than private clouds. Hybrid clouds therefore allow organisations to access these savings for as many business functions as possible while still keeping sensitive operations secure.

Security; the private cloud element of the hybrid cloud model not only provides the security where it is needed for sensitive operations but can also satisfy regulatory requirements for data handling and storage where it is applicable.

Flexibility; the availability of both secure resource and scalable cost effective public resource can provide organisations with more opportunities to explore different operational avenues.
