Due to the increasing load of storing big data, companies are now shifting their infrastructure to the cloud. Cloud transformation eases the operation of businesses and helps to run the processes smoothly. Without any question, cloud services have disrupted the traditional IT landscape.
The discussion is no longer about whether to implement cloud or not, it’s about what platform to opt for to maximize the benefits of cloud computing. There are various types of cloud infrastructures that businesses can adopt. Businesses can choose a platform that allows them to extend their workload and provide cost benefits and data security at the same time.
The hybrid cloud offers all the benefits listed above and provides supreme flexibility of mobility in data deployment between public and private cloud platforms. For instance, businesses can deploy a private cloud to manage their sensitive client data, while going with a public cloud for tasks such as development and testing.
Still not sure how hybrid cloud can transform your business operations, here are some of the benefits that not only help your business to grow but also protect storage costs
Room for Scalability
With a hybrid cloud, companies can transform their private infrastructure into the public cloud, and organizations can scale seamlessly without exposing their entire data to third parties. It allows companies to scale without having to make excessive capital expenditures in response to short-term rises in demand.
Offers Efficient Data Archiving Strategies
With the hybrid cloud, companies can eliminate the requirement for expensive on-premises storage for data that doesn’t require high-performance access by shifting less accessed data to lower-cost cloud storage tiers. Cloud storage services often provide compression features and eliminate duplicate data, thus helping in storage, which can lead to significant storage cost savings.
With the hybrid model, data security is improved, and businesses have better control over their data as compared to the public cloud. As data is there on both clouds, it can be recovered from either platform in case of data loss or disaster. Hybrid helps businesses choose where to host their workloads based on policy and security compliances.
The future of cloud computing for many businesses will be a hybrid model, the reason being combining the powers of both private and public clouds and providing solutions to the best of both worlds. A significant drawback of the private cloud is the inability to scale when required and address peak loads. Thus, generating the need for a public cloud. As a result, a hybrid cloud solves the problem by utilizing both public and private clouds.
