Blog » 7 Advantages of using a Hybrid Cloud strategy
In the age of digitization, hybrid cloud is an important step towards the success of your Enterprise’ digital strategy when it comes to data security. It is one of the fastest growing segments in the global cloud market which is expected to reach US $ 129 billion by 2022. According to Gartner, hybrid cloud solutions will continue to drive overall cloud adoption. That comes as no surprise given the increasing complexities in the IT infrastructure space. Hybrid cloud helps IT/ICT get the best from both worlds- additional security of sensitive information and the advantage of economies of scale offered by public cloud. Hybrid Cloud is the first step towards digital transformation by bridging current infrastructure and future investments in the latest that technology has to offer.
As the demand for public cloud services – IaaS, PaaS, NaaS – rises, enterprises are more keen to integrate all sorts of cloud services. A recent study by Microsoft and the Thought Arbitrage Research Institute (TARI), found that small and medium sized companies (SMBs) improve their chances of better market access and profitability by 3X, with high use of cloud technologies. In India by 2020, the public cloud services market is expected to reach $4.1 billion. Second only to China, India is the largest and fastest-growing cloud services market in Asia Pacific.
Hybrid Cloud is dominating today’s IT landscape as enterprises look to reap benefits of both private and public cloud. Using the perfect mix of IaaS, hybrid cloud helps enterprises with better security, scalability, control, performance and better ROI. Using hybrid cloud allows enterprises to leverage faster provisioning capabilities of public cloud and security capabilities of private cloud. Here are six benefits that your enterprise can reap, from a hybrid cloud infrastructure
Better Data Control – Hybrid cloud, allows enterprises the flexibility to host applications in the public cloud and use a private data center for sensitive data.
Scalability – By using public cloud, enterprises can scale on-demand. This helps them manage any unexpected surges in storage requirements efficiently which maintaining their private data center.
High-Performance – Hybrid cloud allows maximization of infrastructure efficiency and minimizing latency by strategizing which data is kept where. For instance, high demand email access can be on public cloud to ensure that the rest of the data on private cloud is not slowed down.
Adds Agility – Hybrid cloud improves speed of deployment of applications and services allowing enterprises to respond faster to the market/customer/business requirements.
Disaster Recovery – Maintaining all services in cloud allow enterprises to shift some recovery workload to public servers in event of a disaster. This allows IT to recover faster by avoiding a complete breakdown.
Cost Efficiency – Public cloud cost efficient when it comes to dynamic scale and built in disaster recovery and security. With hybrid cloud, IT teams can optimize their budget by spending on security and private cloud for sensitive data and using public cloud for the bulk.
Enterprises have already realized that SD-WAN is the first step for a smooth transition to cloud. Hence, both SD-WAN and hybrid cloud market is booming together. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) SD-WAN infrastructure and services revenue is, expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 69.6% and will reach $8.05 billion in 2021. Digital transformation, cloud and internet are driving this huge growth.
Today, with distributed business, the smart way to reap the benefits of hybrid cloud is an equally flexible, secure, and faster Network- And that’s exactly why you need Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)! The demands of Digitization have already exposed the constraints of legacy enterprise network architectures. Rather providing a competitive edge and fostering business growth, legacy WAN infrastructures act as a huge roadblock to – innovation and network flexibility – Cloud. For hybrid cloud architectures in particular, SD-WAN solutions ensure secure, aggregated cloud access via the most practical alternatives rather using expensive MPLS links.
Lavelle Networks SD-WAN solution facilitates scalable performance over any type of transport, whether MPLS, broadband, cellular or satellite, making it ideal for the varied characteristics of hybrid cloud environments.
