According to Infoholic Research, Hybrid Cloud Computing market is expected to touch $241.13 billion by 2022.

Following are 10 things to know about Hybrid Cloud Computing service.

Benefits of using hybrid cloud services:

1. High scalability

Hybrid cloud allows organizations to take advantage of public cloud services which offer high scalability with lesser boundaries as resources are deployed from larger and more robust cloud infrastructure.

2. Cost effective

Hybrid clouds provides organizations with greater cost efficiencies by allowing them to create a centralized system for multiple operations. It also ensures that all the critical information is protected and secure.

3. Data security

Hybrid cloud model provides a secure system which can protect all the sensitive data and at the same time fulfill all the regulatory requirements required for data handling and storage functions.

Future hybrid cloud trends:

4. Private cloud in a box

Hybrid cloud will provide customized tools designed to match different infrastructures requirement which are specifically architectured to meet customer's hybrid cloud requirement.

5. Containerization and orchestration services

 Hybrid cloud will allow organizations to rapidly scale up and down services and easily migrate between public and private cloud. It will be easier to move all or specific services according to requirement.

6. Policy based management

Hybrid cloud service providers are constantly working on designing cloud management platforms. They are working on deploying consistent policy based management services which can help to enhance portability.

7. Hybrid cloud helps in IOT implementation

 Hybrid cloud services play vital role for IOT to be successful. Industrial IOT requires machinery and heavy equipment to integrate with back-end systems. Hybrid cloud allows in connection, data collection and processing different data and integrate it in one single system alongside taking care of security and privacy.

8. Encourages implementation of analytics

 Hybrid cloud will help in implementation of analytics in a more robust manner. High volume of data used in analytics is well suited with hybrid cloud services as it can scale up quickly per requirement.

9. Different implementation models used in hybrid cloud

  • Deploying services from different cloud services for both private and public services and integrate it into a single platform.

  • Deploying cloud services from a single vendor for both private and public cloud requirements.

  • Organizations develop in-house private clouds services and deploy public cloud services from third party providers which they further integrate and customize pertaining to their business requirement.

Enterprises are looking to implement hybrid cloud into their in-house IT infrastructure to gain a more secure and scalable IT environment.
