5 Benefits of Hybrid Cloud Computing

Designing Hybrid Cloud Computing

From office working to cloud computing… hybrid is the word of the moment! What is hybrid cloud computing – and what advantages does it offer to organisations?

A hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment combining a private cloud (on-premises data centre) with a public cloud (on-demand computing service offered by a third party supplier).

Designing Hybrid Cloud Computing

Research from Gartner shows that:

  • 65% of organisations are actively engaged in public cloud migration.
  • By a 2 to 1 margin, respondents want to extend data centre tools and processes to the public cloud.
  • 81% of organisations are choosing containers with new workloads deployed to public cloud.
  • IT teams are looking to add cloud-like capabilities to their on-premises environments.

Hybrid clouds offer the benefits of both public and private clouds and take advantage of existing architecture in a data centre. Hybrid cloud computing enables your organisation to:

  • combine best-of-breed cloud services and functionality from multiple cloud computing vendors,
  • choose the optimal cloud computing environment for each workload, and
  • move workloads freely between public and private clouds as circumstances change.

5 Benefits of Hybrid Cloud Computing

1. Security and regulatory compliance. Hybrid cloud computing enables your organisation to use best-of-breed cloud security and regulatory compliance technologies. It can help implement security and compliance across all environments in a consistent way.

2. Flexibility and scalability. Agility is a core premise of cloud computing. It offers benefits such as accelerated innovation and time-to-market; faster response to customer feedback; and faster integration with partners or third parties to deliver new products and services.

3. Cost control. Businesses can optimise spend across public cloud services, private clouds, and cloud vendors. In addition, tools can be used to monitor cloud usage, with detailed reports on cost and utilisation by department and workload, for example.

4. Greater infrastructure efficiency. Hybrid cloud helps companies modernise applications faster, plus connect cloud services to data on cloud or premises infrastructure in ways that deliver new value.

5. Improved developer productivity. A hybrid cloud platform enables development teams to develop once and deploy to all clouds.

“Why choose between public and private clouds when you can have the best of both worlds?” asks Eric Hughes of EMH technology. “Our clients enjoy the flexibility and scalability of hybrid cloud computing, especially as most operate a mix of remote and office-based working. For many, this is their long term business model.”

He adds: “It’s important to carefully plan your move to a hybrid cloud model, ensuring that data and process migration happens smoothly. This is something we’re happy to help with.”
