The Top 3 Benefits of Adopting Hybrid Cloud
The adoption of hybrid cloud not only offers the optimization and scalability of public clouds but also enables organizations to achieve the security and reliability of private clouds.
FREMONT, CA – Organizations across various sectors are integrating cloud computing capabilities to enhance their operations and increase productivity. Enterprise IT spending for cloud-based offerings is steadily growing and is expected to reach 28 percent by the year 2022. In the past decade, enterprises have shifted toward cloud-based applications and services. Although cloud technologies are taking over enterprise IT, hybrid solutions have emerged as crucial factors for the survival of organizations in the competitive market.
In the last few years, most organizations across the world have adopted cloud computing for one operation or the other. However, many are not entirely convinced regarding the viability of the cloud. To overcome the challenges of cloud migration, organizations are taking a hybrid approach to cloud computing, incorporating a mix of public and private cloud services to establish a failsafe model to enterprises. Hybrid IT brings out the benefits of both private and public cloud ecosystems, ensuring enhanced cost optimization, scalability, reliability, and security. It not only enables enterprises to avail maximum benefits but also to minimize the risk factors.
Hybrid infrastructure offers greater versatility for organizations, enabling them to manage their databases and services more efficiently. It allows enterprises to leverage private cloud space for hosting sensitive data, and the public cloud space for scalability. Enterprises often leverage public clouds to test the feasibility of their new application as it offers better cost-effectiveness and flexibility.
Security is one of the major concerns for organizations migrating to the cloud. It is often risky for enterprises to place their IT resources in public clouds, as it hands control of their assets to the cloud vendors. With hybrid clouds, organizations can move select applications and keep the more sensitive ones in the private cloud space. It ensures better storage management as well as enhanced security.
Organization leveraging hybrid cloud models face a considerably lower total cost of ownership (TCO) when compared to enterprises operating in all-cloud ecosystems. Hybrid clouds not only eliminate the need for immense infrastructural requirements but also facilitate pay-as-you-need services. Also, public clouds such as AWS and Azure enable organizations to choose and pay for the services they need.
