Can’t decide what cloud solution is right for you? Have you been burned by unexpected fees with your current setup? It might be time to consider moving to a hybrid cloud solution. This solution combines some of the best elements of local infrastructure and traditional public cloud solutions to give you a truly dynamic system that is affordable yet flexible when it needs to be.
One of the key problems with traditional infrastructure is that expanding it takes time. While dedicated resources are still best for performance, a cloud solution can quickly create more virtual machines as needed when spikes in traffic occur. This means you don’t need to have loads of expensive hardware idling for the once-a-week traffic spike.
However, there are security concerns and much more external dependency when using a cloud system. The hybrid cloud solves these problems by allowing you to use local, dedicated resources up to a point and then to bring in cloud resources to augment your regular usage when spikes in traffic occur or more resources are needed temporarily. This type of solution solves the common problem of not knowing what resources you’ll need ahead of time. Hybrid solutions are becoming more and more common. If you’re wasting money with dedicated resources or worried about security in the public cloud, look into a hybrid solution today.
