Cloud-based platforms can either be publicly accessible or private. The public cloud services are open-source platforms that are available for all internet users. However, private cloud services are restricted to a certain set of select users. In a case where private cloud services, public cloud services, and on-premises platforms are all brought together in the creation of another cloud computing environment, such a platform is called Hybrid Cloud.
With a hybrid cloud, it is possible to create an all-inclusive internet-based infrastructure by connecting a company’s on-premises cloud systems and a public cloud into a singular cloud service. This creates a rather flexible infrastructure for processing the company’s applications and data. A hybrid cloud is a highly resourceful method of cloud servicing. It creates a mix between public and private cloud resources, therefore giving the organization the flexibility of choice. Companies running a hybrid cloud platform have the ability the switch between clouds and choose the best platform for each application. It also enhances the easy transition of data and applications between both platforms. With this, companies can achieve more technical goals and business objectives, at a rather cost-efficient rate.
The hybrid cloud is often regarded as a mixture of all the good features of public and private cloud service. For instance, where you need to run classified and critical applications and workloads on private cloud infrastructure. You can also run less classified and temporary workloads and applications on a public cloud.
Hybrid cloud gives companies the chance to leverage on either of both elements, where the other is in high demand. This is called Cloud Bursting. For instance, where there is high storage demand in the private cloud, users can leverage the available capacity of the public cloud to accommodate the private cloud application.
Datasys offers hybrid cloud services for clients who want to diversify their cloud storage platform.
