A clearly defined cloud strategy is an imperative need during any enterprise’s transition to a cloud-based IT environment. To minimize risks and make the right choice between private, public, and hybrid cloud options, it is important to devise an effective enterprise cloud strategy considering these things.\n

Why Hybrid Cloud Computing

After reading several cloud computing trends for 2018, there is one thing that comes to my mind again
and again - Hybrid Cloud. Even as per an article titled 10 Ways Cloud Computing Will Evolve In 2018,
there is an increasing number of companies shift from kicking the tires on the use of cloud and big data
technologies to implementing enterprise deployments, with many taking a hybrid approach.
For those who are hearing the term for the first time, it is a mix of on-premises, private and public cloud
services. Hybrid Cloud enables greater operational flexibility and gives more data deployment options.
Hybrid Cloud Storage allows enterprises to move workloads between on-premises or private cloud and
host what they are comfortable sharing publicly on public cloud platform. In a hybrid cloud
environment, it is possible for the private cloud to be on-premises or even a virtual private cloud that is
located outside the enterprise data center.
While most Enterprises are already using Public Cloud, they are also starting to experiment with private
cloud to enable faster time-to-market and get more efficient. There are many enterprises that are using
Software as a Services for email and CRM.
Enterprises are growing their IT spend for public cloud and evaluating a suitable cloud computing
solution for various applications. There clearly are some obvious benefits of Hybrid Cloud Computing.
For example, the operational flexibility it enables helps run mission critical application on private cloud,
dev/ test on public cloud. It also helps enterprises to become scalable and run peak workloads on public
As per an article published in Enterprise Innovation titled 2018: The rise of AI, hybrid cloud and digital
human rights issues, the ability for enterprises to run applications in different infrastructures – public
and private clouds and on premise with common orchestration and management tools – is enticing.
Multi-cloud, with different workloads running in different clouds managed separately, will become the
dominant mode in 2018, while true hybrid clouds will start to emerge.
There are challenges with Hybrid Cloud Computing
One of the most important requirements that hybrid cloud computing must fulfill is that of seamless
operations across multiple platforms, hypervisors and cloud APIs or application programming interfaces.
In a perfect scenario, users should be able to either create applications or move applications between
different cloud environments without making major changes like networking, security or operational
processes. Enterprises are still struggling with issues related to multiple APIs, tools, policies, processes,
interoperability and mobility when it comes to hybrid cloud.
Benefits of Hybrid Approach
Hybrid Cloud is hugely beneficial if long-term storage is required for storage of legacy information or
backup of data to be stored for a long-term.
Public Cloud can be leveraged for disaster recovery instead of maintaining workloads in a physical
Rapid expansion of web and applications servers is possible during peak season (for example holiday
season) with the need to procure new hardware and the requirement can be scaled down as easily.
It enables the development team to have a whole infrastructure ready with ease without taking months
to build a solution or procure or configure.
Hybrid Cloud will propel digital business
We understand that hybrid cloud environment enables a modernized infrastructure with two or more
delivery models. It entails a traditional data center, private cloud, public cloud, and a managed private
cloud with service provisioning and coordinated management.
Hybrid Cloud can transform traditional IT into a service model with enhanced flexibility, increased speed
to market and decreased operational tasks. It can do so with automated administrative tasks, self-
service infrastructure access and applications and optimal utilization of IT resources. With the Hybrid
cloud models, enterprises can spend less on operational upkeep and divert funds to digital reinvention.
There are many technology heads who believe that Hybrid can streamline operations and gives them
the resources for initiatives that help to innovate, acquire new clients, work towards improved customer
experience, enhance customer engagement and loyalty.
There is no doubt that hybrid cloud allows more scalability, portability and flexibility. If you wish to
