Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment which uses a mix of on premises, private cloud and third—party, public cloud services with orchestration between the two platforms. By allowing workloads to move between private and public clouds as computing needs and costs change, hybrid cloud gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options. Hybrid cloud at the core lets you respond quickly, frees up capital, allows you to scale up or down to meet unknown demand, and reduce costs. An enterprise can deploy an on premises private cloud to host critical workloads, but use a public cloud provider, such as Google Compute Engine, to host less critical resources, such as test/dev workloads. To hold customer—facing archival and backup data, a hybrid cloud could use Amazon S3. A hybrid cloud includes a variety of public and private cloud options. By spreading out over a hybrid cloud, you keep each aspect at your business in the most efficient environment.
To connect private cloud and public cloud resources, this model requires a hybrid cloud environment. Another hybrid cloud use case is big data processing. A Hybrid cloud is a holistic approach to the consumption of IT. It is about matching the right solution to the right job. A company, for example, could use hybrid cloud storage to retain its accumulated business, sales, test and other data, and then run analytical queries in the public cloud, which can scale to support demanding distributed computing tasks. A software layer, such as Eucalyptus, can facilitate private cloud connections to public clouds, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS). Hybrid cloud is particularly valuable for dynamic or highly changeable workloads. For example, a transactional order entry system that experiences significant demand spikes around the holiday season is a good hybrid cloud candidate. The application could run in private cloud, but use cloud bursting to a public cloud to access additional computing resources from a public cloud when computing demands spike.

Hybrid Cloud Platforms And Services
IAM Networks helps you assess your applications and data for cloud. We plan the optimum deployment model, considering physical, virtual, cloud, or hybrid cloud options. We plan the change, and provide the people to carry out the actual migration. Once in place, we optimize performance and cost benefit, and ensure compliance with governance and policy. Business continuity—we offer cloud—based back—up and attach stringent service level guarantees to all commitments. Cloud Services for Cisco—Cisco Powered Cloud Managed Services allows you to stay in control, and retain the value of your existing UC assets as you take the first steps into the cloud, and take advantage of the benefits that the cloud offers.
Cloud Services for Microsoft—with Microsoft Azure Cloud Managed Services enjoy the flexibility of a fully managed private or hybrid cloud service providing messaging, collaboration, PSTN voice, video and web conferencing through access to Microsoft communication and collaboration technologies. Enterprise mobility—hosted on the cloud infrastructure, that ensures flexible integration, rapid implementation, and fast adoption of mobility across the organization.
The systems of engagement driving today’s business growth often rely on cloud computing for its agility, flexibility, and cost effectiveness. In isolation, each of these systems may depend on a single cloud provider, but the broad portfolio of tools deployed across the enterprise creates a far more complex landscape. Work towards a future of Cloud—based integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) and leave on—premises integration behind. Stay with on-premises integration to connect Cloud and on—premises applications and sacrifice ease—of—use. Find a Hybrid solution that combines both Cloud and on—premises integration.
The security of customer transactions and personal information is always of prime importance for any business. By combining dedicated and cloud resources, you can address many security and compliance concerns. Previously, strict PCI DSS compliance requirements meant running payment applications on isolated dedicated hardware, well away from the cloud. But with hybrid cloud, businesses can place their secure customer data on a dedicated server, and combine the high performance and scalability of the cloud to allow them to conduct business and transact payments online all within one seamless, agile and secure environment.
Not all security solutions are created equal. Get complete OS—level security for the cloud environment of your choice actively monitored by our security operations center 24/7 looking for malware, anomalous behavior, and other illicit threats. Make passing an audit easier when you focus on security. 24/7 incident detection and rapid response. Quickly deploys and scales directly to the cloud infrastructure of your choice.
The hybrid cloud has undeniable benefits—it’s a game changer in the truest sense. A study found that 60% of respondents have moved or are considering moving to a hybrid cloud platform due to the limitations of operating solely in a dedicated or public cloud environment. A Hybrid cloud is a holistic approach to the consumption of IT. It is about matching the right solution to the right job. Public cloud, private cloud and dedicated servers are combined and work together seamlessly as one platform. Hybrid cloud minimizes trade—offs and breaks down technical barriers so that you get maximum benefit and improved performance from each component.
Hybrid cloud benefits are easily quantifiable. According to research, by connecting dedicated or on—premises resources to cloud components, businesses can see an average reduction in overall IT costs of around 17%. By leveraging the benefits of hybrid cloud, your business can reduce overall total cost of ownership and improve cost efficiency. Hybrid cloud allows you to more closely match your cost pattern to your revenue/demand pattern, and in the process, move your business from a capital—intensive cost model to an OPEX model.
