Benefits of a Hybrid Cloud Solution
Over the last several years, the cloud has taken over the enterprise IT and made enterprise computing much brighter. Rewind 10 years and the cloud was a relatively foreign concept in companies across industries, sizes, and revenues. The digital transformation wouldn’t be made possible without the invention of cloud. A large amount of enterprises entered the cloud market by building their own private cloud networks, while some of the Tech giants launched into cloud with a public cloud offering. Today, many organizations have started to blend both private and public cloud to create a hybrid cloud solution.
Hybrid clouds exploit the control and security of a private cloud, along with the flexibility and low cost of public cloud offerings. Together they form a powerful solution to meet the increased demands that every department of a business places on IT. Here are some benefits to implementing a hybrid cloud solution:
- Cost savings – pay only when you need it
- Improved security – service-provider environments suffer from less attacks than on-premise users
- Enhanced organizational agility – fewer outages and less downtime. Also buys an organization time when developing and testing new applications
- Mobile friendly – greater accessibility to business-critical applications, anywhere at anytime
