An increasing number of innovative companies today are migrating to a hybrid cloud environment by combining cloud and on-premises solutions in an integrated ecosystem. A hybrid cloud approach is one of the most common infrastructure setups today as it combines a public cloud infrastructure, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or Oracle cloud with a private cloud infrastructure, such as a company's own data center. The goal of a hybrid cloud is to provide the best of both worlds: the cost savings and scalability of a public cloud, combined with the security and control of a private cloud.
One of the main benefits of a hybrid cloud is the ability to leverage the public cloud for non-sensitive workloads, such as testing and development, while keeping sensitive data and applications on-premises. This allows organizations to maintain control over their most critical data and applications. It also allows for easy integration with existing IT infrastructure, and the ability to move workloads between public and private cloud as needed.
By keeping a copy of critical data and applications on a private cloud, businesses can ensure that their data is protected in the event of a disaster or outage on the public cloud.
Certain industries, such as healthcare and finance, have strict regulations that require sensitive data to be stored on-premises. A hybrid cloud can provide a way to store this data on a private cloud while still taking advantage of the public cloud for other purposes.
Businesses can use the public cloud for testing and development of new applications, while keeping production environments on a private cloud for security and performance reasons.
Businesses can use the public cloud to handle periods of high demand, such as during a product launch or holiday shopping season, and then move workloads back to the private cloud during periods of low demand.
With hybrid cloud, businesses can manage, monitor, and secure their cloud environments across private and public clouds with one solution, making their IT infrastructure more efficient and cost-effective.
