How Does a Hybrid Cloud Work?

By Madata

A hybrid cloud consists of at least one private cloud and one public cloud. Its infrastructure manages application workloads in both environments. In 2023, many organizations will begin their digital transformation thanks to the hybrid cloud, which allows for reducing risks, minimizing general IT and cloud costs, allowing migration to the cloud without refactoring, and consolidating data centers. 

Hybrid Cloud Benefits 

Data and workload can flow between one platform and another; this is possible thanks to the virtualization of data and workloads, network virtualization (NFV) or VPN, and connectivity with one or more providers. cloud. 

We share some benefits to take into account in your organization: 

  • Migrate workloads: Fast and without refactoring. 
  • Application Modernization allows you to create and deploy container-based microservices and applications while still using virtual machine-based workloads.  
  • Better scalability: Instant scalability from public cloud providers.  
  • Reduced IT workload: Developers and application managers can benefit from self-service that frees up their workload, allowing them to manage more requests simultaneously and freeing IT staff from routine and repetitive tasks.  
  • Increased flexibility: The hybrid cloud offers options regarding where and when to deploy workloads and data, allowing you to accelerate IT's response to changes.  
  • Reduced complexity: IT can simplify operations by using a single operating model across all environments. This allows us to reduce operational and security risks, as well as improve operational efficiency, avoiding silos and knowledge gaps.  
  • Support new and existing applications: Works with virtual machines and containerized workloads.  

Hybrid Cloud Challenges 

Adopting a hybrid cloud can also present challenges if you don't find a suitable operating model. A hybrid cloud solution works best when it has a single set of management tools, insights, and workflows to expand into a uniform infrastructure.  

These are some of the challenges that a single operating model can address: 

  • Migration without refactoring: If, for some reason, applications are migrated from different environments, expensive and time-consuming refactoring will be necessary. Instead, a single infrastructure allows for rapid migration and, if necessary, migrating back to the local environment without complications.  
  • Virtual machines and container workloads: There is an increasing need to support containerized and cloud-native application architectures. Hybrid cloud management must enable the management of existing and new applications.  
  • Unifying security and policies: With a hybrid cloud, it is important to tie security policies to workloads so they can be applied consistently where needed.

The hybrid cloud guarantees that each element of the public and private cloud works in sync to achieve the objectives you have set for your organization.  

Your organization can reap great benefits from adopting it, but it is important to consider the challenges that may arise carefully.
