Discover the advantages of hybrid cloud
Some time ago, we talked about the main differences between the different types of cloud (public, private and hybrid). In this post, we delve into one of them, hybrid cloud, and we explain you the main differences that it offers.
As its name implies, a hybrid cloud is an integrated cloud service which combines public and private clouds. Usually, private services are used for critical operations (such as several information), and public services are used when privacy is not necessary (to save and share documents on the network, among other uses).
There are several ways to combine these different kinds of cloud: through a full pack supported by a single provider or through collaboration between different providers. It is also possible for companies to manage their own private cloud and, at the same time, to hire a public cloud, which will be integrated in their infrastructures.
Scalability, saving, security and flexibility
Broadly speaking, hybrid cloud combines the best of public and private clouds. We have summarized into four concepts the main advantages that hybrid cloud offers:
- Scalability. Hybrid cloud adapts to the demand of each enterprise in terms of space, memory and speed. By migrating non-critical applications into the public cloud companies can take advantage from it and, at the same time, reduce the demand of private clouds.
- Saving. Hybrid cloud helps organizations to save costs in infrastructures and support of applications.
- Security. Having critical data stored in the private cloud allows not only to ensure its protection. It also secures that the information about the companies is saved according the current data protection regulation.
- Flexibility. Having the possibility to choose between public and private clouds, companies have more options at the hand when they have to decide which service fits their needs better.
