Hybrid cloud refers to a mixed computing, storage, and services environment consisting of on-premises infrastructure, private cloud services, and a public cloud. Using a combination of public clouds, on-premise computing, and private clouds in the data center means having a hybrid cloud infrastructure.
While cloud services can generate cost savings, their primary value lies in supporting a rapidly evolving digital business transformation. Every technology management organization is built on two agendas: the IT agenda and the business transformation agenda.
The primary benefit of a T.net hybrid cloud is agility. The need to adapt and quickly change direction is a fundamental principle of a digital company. Your business could combine public clouds, private clouds, and on-premises resources to achieve the agility it needs.
The hybrid approach allows applications and components to interoperate across borders, between cloud instances and even between architectures. The same level of distribution and access flexibility is also required for data. Whether you’re managing workloads or data sets in the dynamic digital world, you should expect things to move in response to changing needs.
A T.net hybrid cloud architecture includes these features:
Use an easily scalable public cloud for your dynamic workloads, leaving workloads less volatile or more sensitive to an on-premises private cloud or data center.
You could store sensitive financial or customer information in your private cloud and use a public cloud to run the rest of your business applications.
You are unlikely to be processing big data continuously at an almost constant volume. Instead, you could run some of your big data analytics using highly scalable public cloud resources, while also using a private cloud to ensure data security and keep sensitive big data behind the firewall.
A hybrid cloud allows you to allocate public cloud resources for short-term projects, at a lower cost than if you had used your data center’s IT infrastructure. This way, you won’t invest excessively in equipment that you only need temporarily.
No matter how well you intend to meet today’s needs, unless you have a crystal ball, you won’t know how your needs might change next month or next year. A hybrid cloud approach allows you to match your actual data management requirements to the public cloud, private cloud, or on-premises resources that can best manage them.
Unless you have well-defined needs met only by a public cloud solution or only by a private cloud solution, why limit your options? Choose a hybrid cloud approach and you can enjoy the benefits of both worlds at the same time.
Get the most out of your cloud platforms by relying on T.net to customize them to perfectly suit your workflow and security needs. You will be able to make the transition to the cloud incrementally, at your own pace. Put some of your workloads on a public cloud or small private cloud. Find out what works for your business and continue to expand your cloud presence as needed, to public clouds, private clouds, or a combination of the two.
