Hybrid Cloud a solution for new digital business

Hybrid cloud deals with mixture of private computing and public computing environment. By allowing workloads to move between private and public clouds as computing needs and costs change, hybrid cloud gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options. Hybrid cloud is attractive because it enables cloud service customers to address their business needs by leveraging the wide ranging capabilities of public cloud service providers – in particular, the low cost and leading-edge functionality available – and at the same time using private cloud deployment for more sensitive applications and data. Interlinking cloud-deployed applications and data with traditional non-cloud enterprise applications and data is also an important part of hybrid cloud deployments.

For designers and developers some of the critical success factors related to hybrid cloud include:

Flexibility: Repartition/deploy elements of a solution based on changing technology services or improved capabilities.

Speed: Quickly leverage new capabilities in their solutions no matter where they are available in the hybrid cloud.

Capacity: Quickly leverage the capacity of off-premises clouds to provide peak support for on-premises systems.

Consistency: Support continuous delivery of applications across the hybrid cloud leveraging common tools and processes.

Agility: Design and develop solutions in such a manner that where they are deployed across a hybrid cloud can be adjusted in a seamless manner.

In terms of IT, businesses today operate at multiple speeds. To meet the challenges of competition and the rapidly evolving market place, businesses need to be agile and innovative, particularly for mobile and web applications used by customers. At the same time, the stable processes and systems that keep the business running cannot be replaced easily and instead evolve at a slower pace. This is two speed IT. One part, the steady speed, delivers enterprise-strength IT services, and the other part, fast speed, enables exploitation of new digital business opportunities. However, success comes through optimizing support for both types of IT. Hybrid cloud can help provide a solution to this need.
