Moving to the cloud can have tremendous benefits for businesses of all sizes. Before making the leap, it is important to determine what the best type of cloud is for your business. What are the advantages and disadvantages of public clouds vs. private clouds? Is a hybrid infrastructure that combines traditional IT, private cloud and public cloud the best option for your organization?
Deployment of hybrid cloud environments has been on the rise in the enterprise space over the past few years. IT leaders within these organizations often want the control and security a private cloud or on premise solution delivers, along with the flexibility and scalability a public cloud can provide. Combined, a hybrid cloud approach provides the benefits of both worlds—where mission-critical IT operations can be kept on-site or in a private cloud while other workloads and applications can be offloaded to a public cloud environment.
