Different Technologies Are Used For Hybrid Forever As per the latest cloud computing trends, 84 percent of enterprises run on a multi-cloud strategy. The rise of the hybrid cloud will put an end to the debate regarding whether to go for private cloud or public cloud. Statistics reveal that businesses have difficulty choosing between the two and as a result, look for deploying a mixture of both private and public clouds.
A Hybrid Cloud allows customers to enjoy the benefits of both the Public Cloud and the Private Cloud. Most organizations have an IT landscape which are too complicated to go for either a completely Public Cloud, or Private Cloud based approach. Budget constraints too may prevent companies from implementing a Private Cloud model where data security concerns as well as security requirements may prevent them from a completely Public model. In such a case, a Hybrid model allows the creation of a Public as well as Private cloud to fulfil both requirements.
But the implementation of multiple cloud providers undergoes the risk of failure in tracking resources and controlling the expenses. Hybrid cloud puts an end to these concerns as it merges the security and cost-effectiveness of the private cloud with the power-packed performances of the public cloud.
