Rather than entrusting all aspects of IT infrastructure to a third-party cloud provider, companies can customize the private end of their hybrid cloud model to their specific needs and adjust them accordingly as they see fit.
For organizations that can’t afford to take risks with customer data or with their own proprietary data and assets, a public cloud simply presents too many risks. With a hybrid cloud model, however, companies can leverage the security of a private cloud with the power and services of a public cloud.
With hybrid cloud architectures, however, they can have the best of both worlds. Critical data, assets, and operations can continue to reside in the private cloud, but organizations can now leverage the expansive power of cloud computing to quickly and efficiently increase their operational capacity.
While implementing a hybrid cloud solution imposes some additional costs beyond establishing a purely private or public environment, in the long run, it can significantly lower IT costs.
