The evolution of cloud computing has taken the data centre and all of the required auxiliary technologies to a next level. Latest surveys reveal hybrid cloud model is gradually gaining ground. Better performance, more control, higher reliability and reduced cost are few reasons why enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud.
The shift to hybrid cloud however, is not that surprising given its advantages. Hybrid clouds can give customers the freedom of choice when it comes to deploying workloads. It also ensures proper security and scalability. It is now being embraced by dozens of organisations looking forward to leverage the uninterrupted benefits of both a private and public cloud environment. In a hybrid cloud, businesses can even opt for third party cloud computing service providers in either a complete or partial manner. This undoubtedly upturns the flexibility of computing. This type of cloud environment is also capable of providing on-demand, externally-provisioned scalability.
MAJOR REASONS ON WHY MOVING TO HYBRID CLOUDS CAN BE AN IDEAL SOLUTION FOR ENTERPRISES
Flexibility: Flexibility is one of the major benefit of hybrid clouds. Organisations will have diverse business processes that work on critical data as well as day-to-day activities. In case any business function does not process critical data, then you can use a public cloud to run your projects. Simultaneously, all the mission-critical errands can use a private cloud. The availability of both secure resource and scalable cost effective public resource can provide organisations with more opportunities to explore different operational avenues
Cost effectiveness: In hybrid model, business can gain the benefits of public as well as private cloud. Depending upon the business process configuration of hybrid cloud can be easily done.
Better security: Hybrid clouds provides an additional layer of security to your sensitive data
Improved performance: By augmenting existing resources, businesses can gain a maximum output from their ongoing business processes. With exceedingly scalable network provisioning, enterprises can enhance their overall SLA’s and lessen downtime
It is speculated that big enterprises and multinational companies will be engaged in a perfect blend of both public and private cloud operation, often defined as “hybrid” cloud computing, four years from now i.e. 2017.
