Where once the imperative was Virtualization, now it’s Cloud. Even companies refusing to go ‘all in’ on the Cloud expect Cloud-like experiences, which puts pressure on datacenters. Hybrid cloud uses an orchestrated mix of on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services. With its ability to offer greater flexibility and more data deployment options, it’s ideal for dynamic or highly changeable workloads and for big data processing. This paper looks at why many organizations choose to adopt a hybrid model approach to Cloud computing and the advantages it offers compared to pure Cloud or on-premise.
