What Is a Hybrid Cloud Environment?

Every couple of months a new buzzword emerges. In our previous blog we discussed the importance of 5G. Today It is nearly impossible to go online and not see a story that relates to 5G. Recently in the data center space, ‘’Hybrid’’ has become another ‘’It’ word for a good reason. 

The current economy requires a dynamic infrastructure with brief access to every service. The nature of (data) storage is changing as data is what drives business today. By 2025, IDC says worldwide data will grow 61% to 175 zettabytes, with as much of the data residing in the cloud as in data centers. While businesses are changing rapidly, IT strategy needs to keep pace with those changes as traditional systems will no longer meet the expectations of today’s ever-changing market.

What is Hybrid Cloud?

Hybrid Cloud combines on-premises data centers, private cloud, and/or public cloud services. A hybrid infrastructure can help businesses deal with rising traffic levels, as well as increased computing and storage demands.

Why Hybrid IT?

A hybrid infrastructure allows businesses to easily customize workload placement based on their workloads and applications. This means that some workloads can remain on-premises, while others run in the cloud. Hybrid infrastructure offers the flexibility and scalability of the cloud while enabling the business to maintain on-premises tools for mission-critical applications allowing businesses to add resources and make changes to accommodate higher demand quickly.

With a hybrid data center, businesses can retain legacy infrastructure while reducing their expenses. Businesses can also reduce maintenance cost and move some of their application to the Cloud and maximize flexibility and ROI. To balance between cost and performance and returns, a Hybrid Data center approach is a great solution.

In order to create the most effective and efficient IT infrastructure for your business it’s important to determine which application best fit your business needs. It’s critical to select the most reliable approach for your business.
