Ask Approyo – What is the Hybrid Cloud?
Understanding your cloud environment and all your cloud options is very important. With the recent Amazon Web Server outage, this is more important than ever. Since this outage, we've seen many questions raised about the Cloud and one big talking point is the hybrid cloud....
Traditionally, there are two primary deployment models of clouds: public and private. Most organizations will use a combination of private computing resources (data centers and private clouds) and public services, where some of the services existing in these environments touch each other — this is the hybrid cloud environment.
THE HYBRID CLOUD A hybrid cloud is a combination of a private cloud combined with the use of public cloud services where one or several touch points exist between the environments. The goal is to combine services and data from a variety of cloud models to create a unified, automated, and well-managed computing environment.
Combining public services with private clouds and the data center as a hybrid is the new definition of corporate computing. Not all companies that use some public and some private cloud services have a hybrid cloud. Rather, a hybrid cloud is an environment where the private and public services are used together to create value.
Here are a few hybrid cloud examples:
If a company uses a public development platform that sends data to a private cloud or a data center–based application.
When a company leverages several SaaS (Software as a Service) applications and moves data between private or data center resources.
When a business process is designed as a service so that it can connect with environments as though they were a single environment.
