Using a hybrid cloud

Building ground and cloud infrastructure of Google Cloud, AWS or Azure as a single environment using VMware or Nutanix technologies.

The computing environment will combine an on-premises data center (or private cloud) with a public cloud, allowing data and applications to be shared between them. A “multi-cloud” configuration is also possible, where an organization uses more than one public cloud in addition to its on-premises data center.

Advantages of hybrid cloud

Cost reduction

When using a hybrid cloud, organizations can host their business-critical and sensitive data on their private on-premises servers, while their less sensitive data and applications reside in the public cloud. As demand increases, organizations using hybrid cloud can avoid huge capital expenditures to expand their infrastructure and instead pay only for the cloud resources used.

Scalability and control

Hybrid cloud gives organisations more control over their data. As business needs evolve, there is an opportunity to scale your workloads. In addition, the cloud provides increased automation to configure cloud parameters to automatically respond to changes in demand, optimising performance and efficiency.

Business continuity

Hybrid cloud is a key part of the business continuity solution as it helps organizations back up critical data (by replicating business-critical data to the cloud) and provides scalability in the event of a significant spike in demand. As the demands on working devices fluctuate, the company does not risk overloading its private servers (which can lead to slow services or downtime). The cloud will scale to meet demand.

Improved security and risk management

Organisations can choose where to host their data and workloads based on compliance, policy, or security requirements. A hybrid environment also allows for the standardisation of backup cloud storage, which is an important aspect of disaster recovery and data insurance. And centralised management makes it easy to implement strong technical security measures such as encryption, automation, access control, orchestration and endpoint protection to effectively manage risk.
