4 Things You May Not Know About the Hybrid Cloud Model

Updated: Nov 12, 2020

The alphabet soup of cloud-related terms includes numerous options for what services are offered (storage, security, computing), how resources are shared (public, private), and where it’s located (on-premises, off-premises). With all these moving parts, of course businesses are unsure what to do.

To simplify it, hybrid cloud is a combination of in-house (private) and outsourced (public) IT resources. The hybrid model allows for applications and workloads to move freely between the two clouds as circumstances change, creating flexibility that is more cost-effective and efficient.

This stat shows the growing adoption of Cloud resources for businesses. Year after year, companies who want more accessible, secure data management and increased application performance add Cloud to their repertoire.

2. The term “cloud bursting” refers to the on-demand and temporary use of the public cloud when demand exceeds resources available in the private cloud. (Source: Gigabit Magazine)

Seasonal or short notice projects can put a strain on private clouds and in-house IT teams. While demand varies, additional computing resources from the public cloud can provide enough flexibility to compensate for workload spikes.

3. Separate clouds become hybrid when those environments are connected as seamlessly as possible. That interconnectivity is the only way hybrid clouds work—and it’s why hybrid clouds are the foundation of “edge computing”. (Source: Red Hat)

Businesses have massive amounts of data, all of which can’t be stored on devices. Processing on the Edge should be used when there are specific purpose-driven projects with deadlines, but the Cloud can take over to store analytics or when large data volumes require more computing power.

4. The average reduction of total cost of ownership (TCO) among cloud adopters is 40%. (Source: Cloud Technology Partners)

TCO includes costs for the entire IT infrastructure such as development, support, operations, and maintenance. Moving certain processes to Cloud automation creates cost savings and improves resource agility. The prominent value lies in the ability to solve business issues quickly, without waiting for hardware installation.
