The digital aspirations of the enterprises are demanding innovations to drive operations at a much faster rate. In this process, cloud technology (public and private) evolved as a game changer and many companies have been quick to adopt this technology. Despite existing (public and private) cloud technologies having many positives, they faced difficulties in serving certain business logic implementations. This gave scope for the raise of hybrid technology, which evolved with combined abilities of the private and public cloud technologies.
This technology enabled the businesses to make a strategic decision on which service should go on which cloud platform, while enforcing security and governance measures. This is what made Hybrid cloud the strategic aspect of a business; according to TechTarget survey, “39% of companies using cloud computing deploy a hybrid cloud.” Here we present you with the ways hybrid cloud can scale up your business...
Enhanced Architecture Flexibility
The hybrid cloud architecture facilitates to envelop the services and data from varied cloud models to architect an integrated, mechanized and well-organized computing environment. This technology comes with the best of private and public cloud architecture, provides the flexibility to the businesses to decide on data and workload distribution (either public or private cloud,) based on how critical it is. This very feature makes hybrid cloud flexible, scalable, and secure architecture. It also leverages its various SaaS applications to migrate data between various data center resources. This hybrid cloud is best suited for dynamic and highly volatile workload environments.
Intelligent Resource Management System
Resource management is the major problem faced by the most businesses. The growing technology innovations are ensuring bulk availability of resources, which is the advantage most the businesses are enjoying . However, the actual challenge lies in the management of resources. Hybrid Cloud addresses these concerns by helping the companies cope with growing data repositories and control their effect on the corporate infrastructure, involving resource-draining, data migration, and storage location reconfiguration.
Smart and Improved Computational Speeds
Around 1,288 x 1018 bits, i.e. 161 million bytes of digital information were created, captured and replicated as of 2006, as per the reports. While the value was said to have grown six-fold to reach 988 million bytes, by 2010. This increase in data volumes resulted in time-consuming and resource-draining activities for the business, which required employees to be working overtime to overcome migration issues. In these prospects, the Hybrid cloud offers an agility and flexibility in computing capacities to deal with massive data growths by bringing in customized applications. This helped the organizations to avoid server sprawl and under-utilization of servers.
Additional Abilities of Hybrid Cloud
Apart from the above mentioned positives offered by hybrid cloud technology technology, here is list of some other benefits offered by hybrid cloud to businesses are:
- Resource Optimization
- No latency
- Easily manageable
- Server Consolidation
- Rapid Provisioning
- Storage Management
- Data Control
- Tightly-integrated purpose-built application infrastructure
- Component-based infrastructure
- Flattening IT stack
