What is hybrid cloud management?

Hybrid clouds are mixed structures, including private and public clouds (cloud computing environment where some resources are provided and managed in-house and others are provided externally). For instance, an organization can use public cloud for archived data, while still relying on in-house storage for operational customer data. Private clouds will be the best solution while opting for security and ultimate control. On the other hand, public cloud will be perfect for heavy or unpredictable traffic. Concerning dedicated servers, they will meet all requirements of ultra-fast performance and reliability.

Hybrid clouds can be implemented in a number of ways:

  • Individual cloud providers offering a complete hybrid cloud solution;
  • Separate cloud providers connected to provide both - private and public services;
  • Organizations managing their private clouds themselves (public cloud service integrated into their infrastructure).

How hybrid clouds can improve your business?

Hybrid clouds will let your business take advantage of the scalability, cost-effectiveness, security and flexibility offered by public cloud computing environments without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities.

The crucial point of picking the right management strategy for hybrid clouds, is to pick the right business goal that should address either configuration management, change control, security, fault management, or budgeting.

Save operational cost with portability

Moving workloads from one datacenter to a public cloud or other on-premises servers needs to be performed with ease. Cloud technologies, cloud providers, and cloud offers are evolving at high speed. This could change decision makers’ opinions on which solutions best meet their needs. The resources engaged in this change would be greatly reduced with a platform that can adapt to any new technology and offer on the market.

The ability to move workloads becomes essential in critical moments when disasters happen (network connection issues, power shortages, etc.). It will help an organization be less vulnerable to damages and transform a crisis status into a simple operational routine.

Make agile decisions with portability

As discussed in the previous section, the ability to easily move from one provider to another renders the portability cost almost null. Investing in new hardware on premises or selecting a public cloud provider is a decision that can be made on a more frequent basis to improve performances and efficiency.

The opportunity given by a new offer from a cloud or hardware provider can lead to instant actions to upgrade the overall infrastructure. Decision makers do not have to waste time calculating the portability cost, but only focus on the benefits of this new opportunity.

On the other hand, if the service given by your provider is no longer up to required company standards, it is possible to migrate in a reduced amount of time.
