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 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.
The public cloud has the benefits of being secure and elastic. It offers a range of options including infrastructure as a service, platform as a service and software as a service.
The digital world is creating unprecedented amounts of data. Data that can deliver new insights. Data that can create a competitive advantage. Data that your require to manage. As efficiently as possible, with highest performance, highly available, but at the lowest cost.
Data is growing exponentially while IT budgets are staying flat. Businesses recognize data is an asset that needs to be preserved but are unable to meet growing storage demands. 80% of the cost of data is in its management – storing data, keeping a replication copy, backup copies, migrating data, making it available.
