Why hybrid cloud?
For the majority of workloads we recommend hosting in the public cloud, but there are still circumstances where a hybrid cloud approach is more appropriate. Some of the common drivers for a hybrid deployment are:
- When legacy applications have hosting requirements that cannot be efficiently met by public cloud, for example high performance multicast networking
- When there are data governance requirements: while the majority of public clouds offer options to keep data within a locality, it can be difficult to fully audit this and ensure that configurations are maintained. Our cloud governance offerings can help with this
- Where compute resources are flat and there are few scaling requirements, a hosted cloud solution can lead to significantly lower hosting costs
