The Benefits of a Hybrid Cloud

If you’ve heard enough about cloud computing over the past few years, now you need to learn about the hybrid cloud and how it can benefit your business. Companies are beginning to use the hybrid cloud for application hosting, encrypted data storage, and many other mission critical tasks.

What Is a Hybrid Cloud?

A hybrid cloud is the combination of a public cloud provider with a private cloud infrastructure located within a company. In a hybrid cloud setup these cloud solutions can operate completely independent of each other and communicate over a highly encrypted connection.

Primary Benefits of a Hybrid Cloud

  • Scalability – Utilizing a hybrid cloud can allow a company to better utilize resources. A company can utilize their own internal infrastructure up to a point, but, if rapid scalability is needed, the public cloud can help increase asset utilization.
  • Cost-Effective – Relying on a public cloud provider for all of your computing needs can get expensive. By using a hybrid approach, you can only use the public cloud when necessary to cut down on costs.
  • Security – Hybrid clouds are much more secure than public clouds because companies are able to maintain in-house storage of mission critical data.
