Hybrid cloud is the stepping stone to public cloud and legacy infrastructure consolidation—a way to use your existing infrastructure better, while also using the public cloud.
In a hybrid model, the existing on-premise datacenter is modernized to a private cloud environment with fabric software as the underlying operating system. At the same time, the private cloud infrastructure is connected to the public cloud allowing consumption based pricing and availability of on-demand resources to accommodate unanticipated business demands.
Legacy datacenter migration is difficult
The hybrid cloud model uses an underlying software-defined architecture to seamlessly connect the on-premise datacenter with the public cloud. The standardized architecture across the two environments allows for easy migration to and from the public cloud.
Place business workloads where they make sense
Hybrid cloud provides independence from physical on-premise infrastructure giving the flexibility to move cloud-native applications and workloads to the public cloud. The on-premise infrastructure is used for stable, baseline performance, while the public cloud offers the option to set up and tear down test environments quickly.
Meet security requirements for sensitive data
Having an option to keep workloads on-premise means retention of technical control for IT. Tighter control over where workloads are placed allows organizations to meet regulatory requirements and ensure security for sensitive client and company data.
Optimize IT spending and investments
By modernizing existing infrastructure investments into an opex model IT can ensure return on existing hardware investments, while leveraging the pay-as-you-go consumption model of public cloud for setting up quick dev/test zones and during seasonal spikes and unanticipated business.
