Home » 2018 is the year of the Hybrid Cloud

Cloud computing has come into existence in 2000. Since then it enables organizations to access rapidly and effortlessly shared resources. Cloud computing relies on adjusting resources to meet fluctuating and unpredictable business demands in order to achieve coherence and economy of scale.

While private clouds operate for a single organization, the public ones rent their services for public use. Since both of them have strengths and weaknesses, organizations found competitive advantages in the hybrid cloud because it delivers the expected experience. The composition between two or more private and public clouds crosses isolation and allows integration.

Although it took a while to convince clients of its security and trustworthiness, nowadays more and more companies implement a hybrid cloud strategy. A setup where existing systems on a traditional IT infrastructure are combined with a public cloud service is currently the most frequent use case of a hybrid cloud. This way, companies manage to put selected workloads in the public cloud and keep others in-house.

Who’s affected by hybrid cloud

Hybrid cloud systems can be very effectively utilized for industries with variable workloads. This already affects any industry that needs a minimum security against data loss.

Building a hybrid cloud for your organization requires planning and forethought. The best way to achieving the optimal solution is to work closely with the vendors. The largest players in the cloud market are becoming more responsive to the complexities of managing the hybrid cloud. They are offering more solutions and tools to assist in the transition.

A true hybrid cloud should enable you to move workloads back and forth with relative ease. Also, it should allow connecting resources you want to remain on premise with the ones that it makes more sense to transfer to a cloud. When choosing your cloud solution you need to take into consideration data security, safety, and efficiency.

2018, the year of the hybrid cloud

Enterprises are increasingly adopting the cloud for data management and the hybrid cloud is heading the same way. A SUSE study, conducted on more than 1,400 senior IT decision-makers in 20 countries across a wide variety of industries, shows that hybrid cloud strategies are growing faster than private or public cloud. 66% of respondents expect hybrid cloud growth to continue, compared to 55% for private cloud and 36% for public cloud.

Moreover, from May 2018, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will serve as a catalyst for enterprises investing in data governance and change the face of data protection as we know it. As public clouds will be riskier options under GDPR, it`s predictable that the interest in the hybrid cloud will increase.
