In What Ways Hybrid Cloud Streamlines Data Sovereignty Challenges?
FREMONT, CA: The agility and ease of application deployment have urged many organizations to adopt public cloud services. Based on a survey by International Data Group (IDG) in 2018, almost 73 percent of the organizations utilize at least one application or a part of their computing infrastructure in the cloud. However, data sovereignty and compliance policies often restrict the deployment of specific data and applications on the public cloud.
Data on public clouds is subject to the laws of the country within whose borders it is stored. Many regions have stringent data policies in place, which often hinder the companies following the cloud-first approach. Hence, businesses often find it challenging to migrate to the cloud. The emergence of data sovereignty is forcing companies to revolutionize their strategies regarding data management.
Consequently, organizations are turning toward the hybrid cloud to elude the problems of data sovereignty. It allows organizations to maintain equilibrium with their consumers and keep on the right side of the law. The hybrid cloud offering enables the organizations to establish their private, on-premise infrastructure while retaining the agility of the public cloud. Additionally, they can choose the applications they need to keep on-premises and the ones that can be utilized on the off-premises infrastructure. The hybrid cloud possesses the security of private networks and the speed of public networks. As a result, organizations are deploying hybrid clouds that are compatible with their public cloud providers.
For instance, ViBiCloud, a premier provider of cloud services, found it challenging to meet the customer demands for high-performance computing when complying with the data sovereignty laws of the country which required financial and other sensitive data to be located within its borders. Hence, the company adopted a hybrid cloud infrastructure. It deployed Azure stack, which enabled seamless access to the capabilities of a hybrid environment.
The deployment of hybrid cloud solutions will potentially enable a 30 percent year-over-year growth, empowering organizations to generate more revenue and innovation. Even today, it has aided many organizations in escaping the minefield of regulatory challenges that come with public clouds. The integration of private and public clouds will grant them with the capabilities of both the networks, ensuring speed as well as security.
