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”
