How a Hybrid Cloud Solution Works
The Hybrid Cloud Solution Model is exactly what its name indicates. It is the combination of two or more cloud solutions that a client subscribes to which can be a variety ranging from Private Cloud, Community Cloud or Public Cloud. These cloud services are not co-mingled, instead they exist and function independently of one another. The services are designed specifically for a client as parts of a complete cloud solution for the client. The primary benefit of this model is the functionality of services available to clients, such as multiple deployment models. The Hybrid Cloud Model is growing in demand and popularity as more businesses have adopted cloud solutions as a primary part of their business model with technology.
Benefits of a Hybrid Cloud
Cloud subscribers can reap the benefits provided by multiple cloud types from this “Hybrid” architecture; especially regarding FAULT TOLERANCE and USABILITY. What this means is that this repertoire of services is available with locally immediate usability and without dependency on internet connectivity. Hybrid Cloud architecture requires both on-premises resources and off-site (remote) server based cloud infrastructure. While Hybrid clouds lack the security and certainty of fully private cloud, they provide the flexibility of in-house infrastructure with the fault tolerance and scalability of cloud based services.
Hybrid Cloud Example
