In the fast-growing tech world, organizations are continuously trying to find new ways to increase the profit margin of their business. Organizations have eyes on various emerging technologies, which include Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT). One of the most emerging technologies is cloud computing that has provided sustainable results with great potential in a cost-effective manner.

According to a leading market research firm, the global cloud market is expected to grow from 23.7 Billion USD in 2019 and is projected to grow by 73.4 Billion USD in 2024, growing at a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 25.4% during the forecast period. On the other hand, the global market size of the hybrid cloud market is found to have a value of 44.6 Billion USD in 2018. It is expected to grow at USD 97.6 Billion by 2023, registering a CAGR of 17.0%, during the forecast period.

What is Hybrid Cloud & Hybrid Hosting?

Hybrid cloud refers to the mixed computing, storage, and services environment made up of on-premises infrastructure, private cloud services, and public cloud services. Hybrid cloud hosting is the model that allows the organization to implement servers, storage, and dedicated cloud servers on the same network. It is the model that utilizes the public and private cloud hosting tools and techniques to provide a cloud hosting environment to the client. Hybrid cloud hosting is important for many organizations as they are performing complex infrastructure and require multiple IT platforms due to legacy applications, special IT attributes, heavy traffic spikes, and regular mandates.

On 5 May, 2019, according to major research & advisory firm “Hybrid architecture will become the footprint that enables the organization to extend beyond their data centers and into cloud services” 

How to Leverage Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure For a Positive Business Outcome

Organizations are leveraging strategic advantages and benefits offered by the hybrid cloud, and they are increasingly moving towards it as it offers the features of both public cloud as well as hybrid cloud. Dedicated servers are a great fit for many workloads. It is great for running i/o- intensive applications with predictable workloads like databases or mission-critical business applications. Potential inferences are being drawn by several organizations and are trying to make beneficial use from it.

 For instance, IBM is helping the state of Ohio to consolidate and modernize all the departmental data centers into computing centers which will integrate and build thousands of applications. It is making use of a shared private cloud which is costing a loss lesser than its existing infrastructure.

“Hybrid cloud is where the public cloud was five years ago—on the verge of significant growth. Many organizations realize that they can get the infrastructure automation benefits of the public cloud without sacrificing their existing investments in applications, operations, and management. They are getting started by targeting specific projects, such as development and testing and running them in the hybrid cloud”

-Mathew Lodge, Vice President, Cloud Services Product Management and Marketing, VMware

Need of Multi-Layered Security & Compliance Strategy

Cloud security encompasses the practices and technology to keep the cloud computing environment away from cyber threats. The right way to approach cybersecurity through a multi-layered strategy is what will expedite the threats from third party elements. Now the question arises, why do we need multi-layered security to protect our data? To elucidate it further, like Scott Montgomery says, “Would you hand over your house keys to a total stranger and then go away on vacation for two weeks? Probably not, but that’s precisely what some businesses do when they move applications and data to the public cloud.”

The answer to the question is, Multi-Layered Security provides the plan of security to prevent violations in data security threats. So, you’d not have to hand over the keys of your house (business applications) to a stranger (hackers) before leaving for your vacation (data transfer), rather you can have your personalized security plan to prevent any sort of mishap. Multi-layered security is supposed to be designed in a manner that each layer procures to secure areas of security. Therefore, leaving almost negative chances for the hacker to access the information during the data is being transferred to the public cloud. Based on the idea of incorporating a plethora of security solutions to protect the system from external threats, multi-layered security and standards like OAuth2 and OPA can be employed to safeguard the system which includes internet protection, email & file security, virus protection, protection from malware, firewalls, and more.

As far as the security of the organization and its resources are concerned, Compliance Management plays a centrally essential role in risk assessment and to ensure that the set rules are being complied with the respective business. To create an efficient strategy for compliance management is to mitigate the risks of compliance infringement and to protect the organization from corruption, fines, and lawsuits. For ease in the flow of the process and to commit to the compliance, one must follow the relevant legislation and ethics programs.

Having an intact and operational compliance management strategy including organizational ethics answers the question ‘why’ is compliance important. The reason being, it keeps in check whether the organization is at any sort of risk ranging from mulct to incarceration. Hence, the need of the hour is to provide and to secure the organization both internally and externally, to ensure improved data security and multi-layered security along with the compliance strategy caters to both.

The Network And The Cloud: Addressing Security and Performance

Cloud networking or cloud-based networking is when some or all an organization’s networking resources are hosted in the cloud. This may refer to either a public, the private, and hybrid cloud which forms the basis of modern-day cloud computing framework.

Such technologies are driven by a software-defined framework, in which groups of network switches, routers, and servers can be virtualized and turned from proprietary hardware to software as a service model. The software-defined network industry is expected to grow at a progressive rate in the upcoming years.

Cloud networking technology enables cloud computing to deploy virtual machines and networks along with big data transfer and ensures low latency. Cloud networking technology includes products such as wireless LAN networks and software-defined WAN.

The use of web services can increase security risks, yet cloud computing offers many benefits for businesses, from accessibility to better customer experience. Cloud monitoring is one of the initiatives that enable companies to find a balance between their ability to mitigate risks and take advantage of the cloud, without hindering business processes. When customer data is stored in the cloud, cloud monitoring can prevent loss of business and any frustrations for the end customer by ensuring that their personal data is safe and secure.

  • Consider Cloud-based Apps Security
  • Implement multiple layers of physical and virtual security at storage

Users around the globe need reliable, secure access to the data and applications they use every day, and the distribution of apps and services across clouds and data centers is creating new challenges for IT. Traditional application delivery controllers and load balancing are no longer sufficient for accessing and delivering apps in a hybrid and multicloud world. Deploying separate solutions to address each application across a hybrid or multicloud environment can be difficult to secure and manage. It is critical to gain end-to-end visibility and analysis of applications, users, and devices across the network.

Security monitoring in cloud computing is important to be achieved in today’s scenario. It helps people in determining which employee is working with what type of business data at what time and from which location. Industries are suggested to take safety measures on time before things go unexpected and unmanageable for them.
