Hybrid cloud combines public and private clouds. It allows companies to mix and match the facets of all the types of cloud to best suit their requirements.
For example, a company can balance its workloads by locating mission –critical workloads on a secure private cloud and deploying less sensitive data on public one. It not only safeguards and controls strategically important assets but does so in the most cost- and resource effective way.The major benefits are:
- Improved security and privacy
- Enhanced scalability
- Reasonable price
- Makes sense only if companies can segregate their data into mission-critical and non-sensitive
