What are the latest Hybrid Cloud Adoption trends and Strategies?
Hybrid cloud is generally a mix of private and public cloud platforms with orchestration between the two. Improvements to orchestration and a demand for both flexibility and security have increased the adoption of hybrid cloud. However, the deployment of hybrid environments has changed because of this. Emphasis on orchestration is an important trend in hybrid cloud computing, which underlies other key developments.
Core Technologies Services, Inc looks at some of the trends that have affected orchestration and deployment in recent times.
Demand for Flexibly: Since the orchestration is being incorporated into the hybrid model, IT has greater flexibility to prioritize workloads and host them. Organizations are looking for the most sensible solutions without being locked into SLA that provides an either-or choice between on-premises or the public cloud.
Agility and Control: Another trend influencing the hybrid cloud scenario is the demand for agility and control. IT, today, wants the ability to respond to changing business demands and course correct whenever necessary while avoiding vendor lock-in or other rigid limitations. With the hybrid model, one can also offset the high subscription costs that come with public cloud services, thus providing the flexibility to run workloads in the most affordable environment.
Security and Privacy: Last, but not the least, CoreIT finds that security and privacy continue to remain the age-old concern for many organizations. Therefore, organizations find a hybrid environment as an attractive alternative to trusting public cloud services with all of their data.
These trends indirectly play an influencing role in the deployment of hybrid clouds. Organizations want more control over operations, security, and privacy by implementing applications on-premise and want to take advantage of the flexibility of the public cloud to deliver less critical applications to a wider user base at the same time.
Because of this, today's trends suggest that hybrid cloud would continue to grow and become more integrated in future. With a carefully planned hybrid cloud, IT teams will be able to deploy their workloads in a way that best suits their needs in the near future.
