What is Hybrid Cloud?
A hybrid cloud combines multiple distinct clouds into a unified system.
Hybrid cloud definition
Hybrid cloud combines public cloud and private cloud into a seamlessly blended infrastructure. Adding traditional IT into the mix results in a full hybrid IT model that allows companies to take advantage of the public cloud pricing, the general flexibility of cloud computing and the security of dedicated hardware.
Why hybrid cloud?
With hybrid cloud, companies can place each workload in its optimal environment, which has the effect of speeding deployments, reducing costs and allowing the right security measures to be put into place to meet compliance standards for sensitive data. Integrating public cloud with private systems allows organizations to take advantage of pay-as-you go public cloud pricing models to handle high-volume batch computing jobs and sudden traffic spikes while maintaining control and predictability with owned infrastructure.
