What is a Hybrid Cloud?

hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment that employs both on-premises and public cloud resources, along with unified management and orchestration tools, to enable flexible data, application mobility, and operational agility across your IT infrastructure.

How Hybrid Cloud Can Drive Your Business

Hybrid clouds give organizations options for operational and financial flexibility. Businesses can adjust their CAPEX and OPEX infrastructure usage according to workload demand and data center and budget requirements. Cloud resources, for instance, might be used to handle DevOps or AI initiatives, while mission-critical apps remain on-premises. A true hybrid cloud environment also provides greater data-protection options, as well as additional use cases for data.

The Benefits of Hybrid Cloud

In terms of business applications, organizations are moving rapidly to a hybrid cloud model in which enterprises and cloud-native companies alike can capitalize on hybrid applications that take advantage of innovation across linked on-premises and public clouds. In this model, businesses leverage both the reliability, efficiency, and security of private cloud and the agility, simplicity, and on-demand consumption of public cloud. In effect, you get the best of both worlds.

Pure's Take on Hybrid Cloud

Enterprises today have to contend with a cloud divide: They want to run hybrid, but the reality is that enterprise apps mostly run on-prem and migrating them to the cloud is difficult. Likewise, webscale apps are mostly built in the cloud and migrating them on-prem is difficult. This also poses a challenge for development: On-prem and cloud storage have different features and APIs, so developing an application that runs seamlessly across both is nearly impossible.However, the data landscape is rapidly changing. The new hybrid cloud can deliver: 

However, the data landscape is rapidly changing. The new hybrid cloud can deliver: 

  • A true hybrid cloud experience with consistent data services, resiliency, APIs, and bidirectional data mobility
  • Hybrid apps that seamlessly leverage resources from both private and public clouds
  • Modernized data protection across private and public clouds, including snapshots and high-availability clusters
  • A common storage layer that delivers the ultimate agility: You get faster application development, and your applications are no longer linked to any specific infrastructure
  • Seamless hybrid cloud monitoring, management, and licensing

Pure Storage® is paving the way for this new hybrid cloud model with industry-leading cloud data infrastructure delivered on-premises and cloud data services delivered natively in the public cloud.
