The main benefits of public cloud platform are:
Creating a hybrid cloud migration strategy as part of your IT infrastructure is your first step to mitigating hybrid cloud migration challenges. Not all public clouds are created equal, so it is important to decide which public cloud provider is best for your organization. Having a strong grasp on your data and processes will help enable your cloud integration to go more smoothly.
Also, it is important to note that the majority of successful cloud migrations aren’t typically completed in a single effort or project. It is wise to implement smaller projects with the end goal of a hybrid environment. Your company may benefit from building a limited hybrid cloud model in order to support specific workloads, and then build out additional services as your efforts in a hybrid cloud initiative show the benefits and value to your business and stakeholders.
Private networks are costly to build, maintain, and expand. As a result, they limit a company’s agility to take advantage of new technologies and opportunities. Hybrid clouds enables companies to reap the benefits of both a public and private cloud. Business-critical data, applications, and operations can remain in a private cloud environment and the power of cloud computing can be leveraged in a public cloud environment. Public cloud computing resources increases a business’ scalability and agility by facilitating the ability to develop new applications and also run analytics that would have been beyond the scope of a smaller organization with only a few servers to utilize. Hybrid clouds level the playing fields for companies of all sizes to compete with competitors who are more established since rapid growth is now possible.
A major advantage of hybrid cloud architecture is speed. While a multi-cloud or purely public cloud environment might be inherently faster than a hybrid cloud environment, IT staff is able to reduce latency and can optimize their network to make sure data is where it needs to be.
Hybrid cloud environments leverage edge computing architectures to further increase speed and locate crucial data and applications for its end users. Private portions of a hybrid cloud can be configured to be more purpose built to maximize resources and enable users to work faster and ultimately be more productive. Organizations can offload non-critical operations to a public cloud and configure their network to handle solely critical traffic.
A key benefit of a hybrid cloud solution is increased control for IT personnel. Companies are able to customize their private data and applications to a hybrid cloud architecture model in order to adjust their IT infrastructure to their needs. Increased control post-hybrid cloud migration is achieved when internal IT staff retains the ability to manage critical operations and IT infrastructure like servers and hardware.
Having control over IT assets in a responsive hybrid cloud architecture model is advantageous for organizations who want responsiveness in their cloud environments. Today’s fast-changing IT landscape has companies making changes frequently and adjusting and reconfiguring their cloud environments. Vital data assets need to be protected during those changes in order to have minimal disruption. Companies also need to be prepared to changes in their cloud provider’s SLAs and sudden loss of services.
Put simply, a “hybrid cloud” is a cloud computing strategy which enables companies to combine different cloud environments that are connected to each other. These cloud environments can be private or public clouds or virtualized infrastructures.
Hybrid clouds are configured to operate independently of each other and data that is shared across the communication channels is highly encrypted. Hybrid clouds are incredibly stable since a company’s critical data and workloads are stored in the private cloud.
The private cloud is extremely secure; however, data stored in a private cloud will likely still have to be transmitted into the public cloud in order to run analytics, processes, and applications, so extensive encryption needs to be implemented in order to keep data as secure as possible. IT staff still retains control of the structure of the public cloud; therefore, access to the data must be managed and strict protocols should be implemented on how those critical assets are managed.
Companies gain flexibility, control of benefits, guaranteed availability of resources, exceptionally strong security and regulatory compliance, and cost savings when utilizing a private cloud. Storcom’s private cloud leverages best-in-breed technology to ensure that your critical data is accessible whenever and wherever you need it.
The hybrid cloud allows for maximized IT utility, resilience, and agility. Public and private clouds have different areas where they each excel, so companies are able to reap the benefits of each platform when using a hybrid cloud solution. Private clouds enable organizations to scale up and down based on demand, which often comes with a lower cost, and private cloud solutions offer superior security and control. Some companies prefer that their critical data is stored in a private cloud, and other data and applications can be stored in a public cloud to lower cost. When using a hybrid cloud, your company is able to find the most suitable use cases for your IT environment and your cloud experience and utility is not limited by an either/or decision.
