Hybrid Cloud: Answer to the Quest of Business Data Management

By Enterprise Technology Review | Tuesday, August 13, 2019

A hybrid cloud approach includes the advantages of both on-site and public cloud computing services, offering businesses with a "fail-safe" model.

FERMONT, CA: For companies moving to the cloud, security has always been a significant issue, and for the right reasons. Organizations can decide with a hybrid cloud which applications or services can stay in the public cloud and which should be private. Furthermore, the combination of public and private ensures that businesses do not overburden their safer private cloud room with top three advantages of hybrid cloud system adoption.

Enhanced Flexibility

Organizations can manage their databases and services more efficiently with a hybrid approach. The private cloud can serve as a sensitive data hosting environment, while the scalability of the public cloud space can be used. Companies generally test the cost-effectiveness of their new apps on public clouds. In other words, a hybrid cloud allows businesses to combine a private cloud's security with a public cloud's scalability to meet their specific needs.

Reduced Costs

Organizations deploying a hybrid model have a reduced TCO (total ownership cost) compared to their counterparts operating in an all-cloud setting. A hybrid cloud interface eliminates the need for massive infrastructure requirements as it is based on a model that is necessary for pay-as-organizations. Because of the backup of numerous public cloud services, businesses pay only for the resources they use. For example, services such as AWS and Azure are designed to provide the flexibility to manage costs without the quality of services is included.

Tackling the Challenges of Hybrid Cloud Adoption  

While cloud adoption has significantly increased over the past decade, numerous organizations are still joining the cloud. But, that's not surprising. The migration method presents a variety of difficulties, even after considering factors such as comfort and affordability. Maintaining security is one of the first issues that companies need to address while deploying a hybrid adoption of the cloud. Ensuring the fulfillment of security protocols and regulations during the post-transition period is crucial.

Today's large volume of data has made adoption of the cloud necessary. Now, it may seem complicated to merge public and private cloud, but that's the way to go. As stated previously, a hybrid could be a model that offers a firm middle ground. This allows companies to take a vibrant yet value-driven strategy to leverage cloud benefits.
