The experts are unequivocal; Gartner predicts that almost 50% of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud models in place by the end of 2017. Cloud computing is more than a trend. Business is moving to the cloud not just for substantial cost benefits, but also for the agility and scalability it provides.
For the majority of organisations a hybrid configuration makes for a great migration. The public cloud offers seasonality and scalability and the private cloud provides for compliance, licensing and auditing requirements. For example, a company might use public cloud for web, search engines and application servers, but use private cloud for their database servers.
While the benefits of cloud are clear, it is also a complex undertaking. The most critical consideration for most organisations is security. Good security starts with a deep conversation about your business needs with your provider.
