The Hybrid Cloud Solution

The hybrid cloud migration solution will combine your on-premise infrastructure or private cloud with public clouds to provide advantages to both infrastructures. Knowing when to use this strategy can benefit your organization significantly. In a hybrid cloud strategy, data and applications can move between private and public clouds for greater flexibility and more deployment options.

The hybrid cloud will help consolidate IT resources. This set up will give you the ability to scale out and quickly provision new resources. The workloads can be moved between environments using a single, unified management tool. Also, the processes can be automated.

There are many advantages to utilizing the hybrid cloud strategy.

Control
Your organization’s most sensitive data can maintain on-premise or a private cloud.
Flexibility
You can place workloads where they make the most sense. This will help you take advantage of additional resources in the public cloud when you need them. Scaling up on demand will benefit your developers and speed up innovation within the organization.
Cost-Effectiveness
With the ability to scale to the public cloud, you pay for extra computing power only when needed, decreasing the total cost of ownership.
Ease
Transitioning to the cloud doesn’t have to be overwhelming because you can migrate gradually—phasing in workloads over time.
Foster Innovation
Allow your developers to safely test software and run pilots in a public cloud without the processes or time restrictions associated with on-premise or the private cloud.
Security and Regulatory Compliance
By maintaining your sensitive data in a private cloud—while running non-sensitive applications in a public cloud—you overcome common cloud-related concerns about security and multi-tenancy. With better security, you overcome cloud-related concerns about regulatory compliance as you can choose which servers to isolate or restrict access.

Every hybrid cloud is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all cloud architecture.

The design of your hybrid cloud will be as unique as your organization. Typically, there are two ways to set up a hybrid cloud strategy.

Traditional Hybrid Cloud Architecture
Traditionally, hybrid clouds were designed by connecting a private cloud environment to a public cloud service such as AWS. A connection between both is linked to moving the resources among these environments.
Modern Hybrid Cloud Architecture
This architecture type focuses on the application. Developers develop and deploy applications as collections of small, independent, and loosely coupled services. Running the same operating system in every IT environment and managing them through a unified platform will abstract all the hardware requirements. This creates an interconnected, consistent computing environment.

A hybrid cloud solution can be designed, integrated, and managed as a secure infrastructure. While there are some unique hybrid cloud security challenges, the presence of multiple environments can be one of the most robust defenses against security risks. All those interconnected environments let enterprises choose where to place sensitive data based on requirements, and it makes security teams standardize redundant cloud storage that can augment disaster recovery efforts.
