Hybrid cloud advantages
The main objective of the hybrid cloud is to take advantage of public and private cloud benefits. However, some of the risks and disadvantages of public and private clouds are not always solved in hybrid clouds.
The challenge of hybrid computing is to provide seamless operation across platforms, cloud application programming interfaces (APIs), and hypervisors. Users prefer to use their data center tools to manage hybrid cloud environments. Ideally, they want to be able to create applications, or move existing applications between the clouds in a hybrid cloud environment, without having to change anything serious like networking, security policies, operational processes or management/monitoring tools. This could be a problem due to issues around interoperability, mobility, differing APIs, and tools, as well as policies and procedures.
Clouds generally increase complexity.
With the use of a hybrid cloud computing model, a company can capitalize on the advantages of keeping data secure while outsourcing infrastructure and other computing services to the cloud. This enables an effective ROI, cost, and ease-of-use benefits, while reaching a broader market. A hybrid cloud environment seamlessly integrates such external applications available on the private and public clouds, with your own in-built processes.
