You’re likely familiar with the hybrid approach to hosting, in which a combination of dedicated and cloud resources are utilized for a single purpose or application. The approach is popular for the flexibility it provides; businesses can benefit from the security and performance of dedicated hosting combined with the scalability of the cloud.
Now there’s a new approach proving to be even more efficient, flexible, and affordable for your entire infrastructure: the hybrid multi-cloud strategy.
Understanding Hybrid Multi-Cloud
A hybrid multi-cloud solution is designed to run the right task, in the right environment, at the right time, for the right reasons. Hybrid multi-cloud hosting offers flexibility for businesses who want to spread their day-to-day operations and failover plans across multiple vendors or who want to ensure their infrastructure can quickly adapt to changing needs. It may mean connecting public and private clouds; bare metal to multiple clouds; clouds of the same type across multiple hosting providers; or any combination thereof — for all of your processes and applications.
According to Gartner, 70% of enterprises will run on a multi-cloud strategy by 2019 — and it’s easy to see why organizations are moving towards a more flexible, customizable implementation.
A hybrid multi-cloud configuration means your data and applications are stored and run on the environment best-suited for them, which helps ensure your infrastructure is always operating at its highest optimized level to deliver the lowest cost and best performance. If you’re running legacy systems, choosing a hybrid multi-cloud strategy can help you avoid the pain of migration while enabling you to incorporate modern applications into your operations.
As an added benefit, the siloing of infrastructure according to need and security level makes your system more secure and readily able to meet regulatory and compliance needs (e.g. keeping sensitive data on a private cloud or dedicated server). Some companies even choose to spread their infrastructure across multiple vendors to avoid lock-in and add backup and disaster recovery capabilities.
