Agility and business continuity are the top two priorities for all businesses today. This is more pronounced and accentuated in these times of lockdowns and work from home trends. Growing trends in hybrid cloud adoption is a clear indicator of CIO priorities. Well, it is not as simple as mentioned to move to the cloud.
Business managers need to clearly align their business strategy and cloud strategy, before embarking on operational details of cloud options.
Why go to the hybrid cloud?
Increased data speeds – hybrid networks can be configured to push essential data through private servers instead of public ones, greatly improving load times and data transfer speeds.
Improved security – Sensitive data can be secured on private servers with many layers of encryption that can only be accessed in-house, whilst non-sensitive and publicly-accessible data and applications can be accessed through a public server.
Decreased spending – Utilising the public cloud for applications that don’t require security is likely to be more economical in the long run.
Microsoft tech community is one of the earliest proponents of the hybrid cloud as a blend of on-premises (private) cloud and off-premises (public) cloud. This hybrid approach allows better orchestration of both the cloud environments. Need-based workload mobilization based on business needs at reduced cost and increased flexibility is the key drivers of hybrid cloud deployment.
