A hybrid cloud is a computing environment that combines public and private clouds by enabling the sharing of data and applications. With changing IT and processing requirements, hybrid cloud computing enables organizations to seamlessly extend their on-premise infrastructure to the public cloud to manage overflows. A third-party data center can not access the entire data. Organizations benefit from the flexibility and computational power of the public cloud for non-sensitive, basic computing tasks, while maintaining the security of critical applications and data on-premise behind corporate firewalls.
With the hybrid cloud, organizations can not only expand their IT resources, but also eliminate the need for large investments to manage short-term demand peaks. Businesses can use more sensitive data and applications. It is also eliminated when local resources must be released. Instead of buying, programming and managing additional resources and equipment that can be idle for long periods of time, companies only pay for the resources they use temporarily. Hybrid cloud computing is the best possible platform, offering all the benefits of cloud computing (flexibility, scalability, cost-effectiveness) and minimizing the risk of data breach.
