My experience has been that hybrid clouds provide technological choice within a solution. Thus businesses are not locked into a specific platform, and they can mix and match public and private clouds as required. This includes all types of IT solutions, such as database, storage, process, middleware, etc.
Hybrid clouds have given businesses an incredible amount of flexibility. This flexibility translates to agility, and a path for businesses so they can change at the “speed of need.” This flexibility is critical for industries that reward time-to-market, or the ability to change quickly. Examples include healthcare, finance and high tech.
When approaching hybrid clouds for the first time, CIOs and CTOs should consider the existing requirements, including current target workloads for migration, as well as what the future requirements will likely be. In many instances, not enough private cloud capacity is planned, and IT must quickly expand capacity to meet current demands. Also, the types of public clouds paired with a private cloud may not be as efficient and cost effective as other public clouds, as the workloads and the data storage needs evolve.
