Is the Public Cloud right for you? Is a Private Cloud right for you? What if it’s a bit of both?
Hybrid Cloud is exactly that.
It's likely that you're familiar with the concept of "the cloud" relating to storing data online, but have you heard of hybrid clouds?
By combining public and private clouds, a hybrid cloud can create an infrastructure that offers greater flexibility in optimising a business's computing workloads, while taking advantage of the features and cost savings offered by different types of cloud hosting.
At CloudCoCo, we provide hybrid cloud solutions that reduce optional burdens. We achieve this through our VMware Cloud Director Solution, which gives you a single console to manage, view, and make changes to your cloud environments regardless of where individual elements are hosted. We have worked with our customers over the last decade to deploy hybrid cloud solutions that drive maximum cost savings while not impacting the services being delivered.

A hybrid cloud brings together public and private clouds and enables data to move effortlessly between them.
This is achieved by virtualising data using services like VMware and then using various protocols and connectivity tools such as Virtual Private Networks (VPN), Application Programming Interfaces (API), and Wide Area Networks (WAN).
Different environments within the overall hybrid cloud computing infrastructure will have its own particular advantages and optimal utilisations.
Combining them this way in a hybrid manner means that you have quicker access to vast arrays of data whilst retaining a higher degree of control, security, safety, and accessibility for your most sensitive data and services.
A hybrid cloud makes workloads portable across different cloud environments under a unified hybrid infrastructure and aims to automate where workloads are sent so that they arrive at the optimal cloud environment for their intended purpose.
You can opt for the data centre location which is closest to your business physically and also select the contract length which works best for you. More servers can also be added as and when you need them.
The main feature of a hybrid cloud is its flexibility; hybrid clouds offer a dynamic cloud-based computing solution for businesses dealing with big data workloads. A hybrid cloud may not be suitable for everyone however, there are distinct differences between hybrid, public and private cloud infrastructure models.
Whilst hybrid clouds are extremely flexible, this is not without some sacrifice; for example, private clouds may offer a higher level or overall control and security than a hybrid cloud. For their part, public clouds may be able to offer a greater degree of user-friendliness, convenience, cost savings and flexibility.
Deciding which cloud-based solution is right for your business will necessitate a review of your business needs and what you need your cloud-environment to be able to help you facilitate and achieve.
