Having control and mobility of data is very important for any business. However, an enterprise has no direct control over the architecture of a public cloud, so, for hybrid cloud deployment, it must architect its private cloud to achieve compatibility with the desired public cloud.
The hybrid cloud is a term that you have probably heard with all this boom that there is about storage and use of applications on the Internet to optimize the processes in your company. But what exactly does it mean and why should you invest in it?
In its simplest form, the hybrid cloud is a local and cloud computing infrastructure that incorporates two different types of services in the network, the private and the public, which is linked in a way that allows them to exchange data or applications.
But is it worth it for your company to invest in hybrid cloud infrastructure? There is a debate on the question, and some interesting arguments as to why it is important to have your own servers, ranging from cybersecurity issues, regulations of each country and timely and rapid access to applications.
Ideally, if you already have your own infrastructure, and you are looking to enter the digitalization of services or processes, a hybrid cloud is ideal. Beyond giving companies the supervision and care of sensitive data, there are a variety of suggested uses for this platform. These include the so-called “bursting cloud”, where a workload initiated in a private cloud is downloaded by the public when the local capacity is exhausted. Another use is to divide a system, so that some components run in a private cloud and others in the public one, like what Amazon Web Services does with its clients, for example.
You know that today anyone can access the cloud, although having a private platform will help you never lose control of what is happening in digital issues within your company, especially in security. If you already have your own infrastructure, the important thing is that you learn to live with what you have and add new business models in the cloud, because that will make you more competitive with your rivals.
Remember that many medium and large companies have run directly to the cloud for issues of savings in resources, but today they have to return part of their applications that came to this service on the Internet because they should not be there. Mainly issues of regulation, fears of changes in use and security policies in the United States and less violation by hackers, have taught that we must be careful with what is left on public platforms or charged to a third party.
Before making excessive purchases that oversize the requirements, you must understand that it is better to pay for use, for what you need, and not be fooled by supposing benefits that you can currently have with your own infrastructure.
Remember that your network center helps you to have control of your security policies, that your data is agile and flexible, instant and unlimited in the use of applications adding a hybrid cloud. The options are many, but you must consider what you want and how much you are willing to spend to keep your company at the forefront of technology and business. Always approach a specialist before hiring a cloud service.
