Hybrid cloud computing

Hybrid cloud computing

A hybrid cloud is a combination of a private cloud combined with the use of public cloud services where one or several touch points exist between the environments.

The goal is to combine services and data from a variety of cloud models to create a unified, automated, and well-managed computing environment.

Definition

A hybrid cloud is a computing environment which combines a public cloud and a private cloud by allowing data and applications to be shared between them.

When computing and processing demand fluctuates, hybrid cloud computing gives businesses the ability to seamlessly scale their on-premises infrastructure up to the public cloud to handle any overflow – without giving third-party datacenters access to the entirety of their data.

Hybrid cloud storage
