Cloud computing solutions: in spite of the security they provide, for some, relinquishing in-house data storage supported by local servers provokes more trepidation than the onset of a bad storm. For businesses not yet willing to brave what the conventional cloud has to offer, hybrid cloud computing may provide a clear resolution. In this model, private and public cloud infrastructures remain unique entities, but are connected through standardized technology that allows data and application portability. Utilizing the benefits of both private and public clouds, hybrid cloud computing is a customized cloud computing solution for businesses.
Peace of Mind
Some businesses may not feel comfortable storing all of their data and applications on the public cloud for a variety of reasons: security restrictions, compliance needs, and performance requirements. Using a hybrid cloud allows some data to be kept local and some to be stored remotely, depending on the needs and the specific project at hand or information to be stored.
Increased Storage Capacity
Many companies who have preexisting private cloud computing in place want to leverage assets of the public cloud in order to save money while optimizing IT services. Hybrid cloud computing allows businesses to expand their existing storage needs, making use of the public cloud to scale data processing as business itself expands. Many companies will utilize a private cloud for mission-critical applications or highly sensitive information, leaving the public cloud space for non-critical applications and data. Other uses of the public cloud in a hybrid cloud computing situation include testing , external facing applications, and retiring old applications.
Companies that have a private cloud or are looking to implement one often need to take advantage of extra storage via the public cloud, which can support unexpected and additional workloads. With cloudbursting, which pushes data into the public cloud when computing capacity on the private cloud reaches its pinnacle, hybrid cloud computing efficiently extends compute resources.
By eliminating the need to purchase additional hardware for in-house storage and changing existing technology, the hybrid cloud offers businesses an affordable means of added storage and computing capacity.
