Hybrid cloud computing differs from multi-cloud computing in one important way: the inclusion of private cloud infrastructure, such as a data centre, along with one or more public cloud services, usually working in sync to achieve business goals.
With hybrid cloud, you should be able to:
Connect multiple computers through a network.
Consolidate IT resources.
Scale out and quickly provision new resources.
Be able to move workloads between environments.
Incorporate a single, unified management tool.
Orchestrate processes with the help of automation.
What is Multi Cloud?
Multi cloud is a cloud approach made up of more than 1 cloud service, from more than 1 cloud vendor—public or private. In a multi-cloud environment, an enterprise utilizes multiple public cloud services, most often from different cloud providers. For example, an organization might host its web front-end application on AWS and host its Exchange servers on Microsoft Azure.
Since all cloud providers are not created equal, organizations adopt a multi-cloud strategy to deliver best of breed IT services, to prevent lock-in to a single cloud provider, or to take advantages of cloud arbitrage and choose providers for specific services based on which provider is offering the lowest price at that time.
The cloud is no longer a mysterious concept. Most businesses have decided to use the cloud in one way or another; usually starting with a “lift and shift” of applications, but will often stall when trying to figure out what happens on day two.
Utilize our expertise in data protection and disaster recovery and expand it with leading edge technologies like data fabric to the hybrid cloud.
Instead of focusing on the now cliched “journey to the cloud,” we ensure that our customers have a cloud strategy that supports high availability, performance and flexibility and gets you through day two. Whether you’re using multiple data centers, public clouds, private clouds, or a combination of each, we can help reduce complexity while maintaining high availability, all while avoiding vendor lock-in. Day two is ensuring the application runs in production — and that it is monitored, capacity is managed, and any issues are troubleshot in real time.
