Hybrid cloud, in simpler terms, is the marriage of private cloud and public cloud. It is rapidly becoming a leading cloud solution that enables organisations to achieve a balance between business and IT priorities.
Organisations can store critical or sensitive data on a private cloud and allocate other computing resources to third-party public cloud infrastructures that can provision heavy storage and traffic at lower costs. This means efficiency, availability, reliability, security, and cost efficiency for organisations.
A research by Gartner predicts that by 2020, 90 percent of organisations will adopt hybrid infrastructure management capabilities.
