Hybrid cloud integrates public cloud services, private cloud services and on-premises infrastructure and provides orchestration, management and application portability across all three. The result is a single, unified and flexible distributed computing environment where an organization can run and scale its traditional or cloud-native workloads on the most appropriate computing model.
Hybrid multicloud is hybrid cloud that includes public cloud services from more than one cloud service provider.
By enabling a company to
- combine best-of-breed cloud services and functionality from multiple cloud computing vendors
- choose the optimal cloud computing environment for each workload, and
- move workloads freely between public and private cloud as circumstances change
hybrid cloud – and particularly hybrid multicloud – helps a company achieve its technical and business objectives more effectively and cost-efficiently than public cloud or private cloud alone. In fact, according to one recent study, companies derive up to 2.5x the value from hybrid cloud than from a single-cloud, single-vendor approach.
