What Is Hybrid Cloud?
Hybrid cloud is a solution that combines on-premise data centers and private cloud with one or more public cloud services, with proprietary software enabling communication between each distinct service. A hybrid cloud strategy provides businesses with greater flexibility by moving workloads between cloud solutions as needs and costs fluctuate.
It’s also a good solution if an organization needs to offer services both in private data centers and via an on-cloud subscription. They would then be able to build web applications and services or machine learning models and use them both on-premise and on-cloud, as well as take advantage of their hybrid architecture to maintain communication between applications or data flow between the cloud and the on-premise infrastructures.
