Hybrid Cloud [Infographic]

Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment which uses a mix of on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services with orchestration between the two platforms. By allowing workloads to move between private and public clouds as computing needs and costs change, hybrid cloud gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options.

Cloud computing is here to stay. The question for most companies is whether to pursue a public cloud or a private cloud. Seventy percent of CIOs are saying that they want the best of both worlds; that is, they are choosing the hybrid cloud model, which is when a company uses a mixture of public and private cloud services. This model is gaining traction– Microsoft has integrated cloud computing into its latest releases of Server, System Center, and SQL Server. Projections from leading industry experts show that 68 percent of organizations will turn to hybrid cloud computing by 2015.
