If Hybrid Cloud computing is future, then so is Azure!
L.G. Network’s research into the hybrid capabilities of Microsoft Azure.
For most companies, a hybrid approach to the cloud makes the most sense. During our requirement research, we often find that organizations want choice and flexibility to run their workloads and apps. They would surely turn to cloud computing to get the benefits of faster innovation and extra agility that comes with it.
And the result is that organizations like to have a hybrid approach to cloud.
Hybrid makes sense when people prefer to not completely discard their on-premises hardware in favor of going 100% cloud. This works brilliantly for organizations with existing infrastructure that want to enjoy the super-fast processing capabilities of Azure while keeping data on their own hardware.
The whole hybrid or not picture expands further with Artificial Intelligence involved along with Internet of Things as we move towards onboard data relay and quick decision-making systems that use a greater online database for accessing vital protocols.
A hybrid cloud in a distributed form offers a future-proof and long-term design approach as claimed by Microsoft.
“91% of 2,500 IT professionals from different companies believed Hybrid will remain as they approach 5 years from now.” A Microsoft- Study indicated.
Research indicates that other “cloud as a computing service” provider like AWS and VMWare have started rolling out their Hybrid services. But Microsoft has been in the lead because of their years of Enterprise experience which makes sure that Azure users get a consistent experience across cloud and on-premises.
Understanding what is Hybrid and what’s not.
Hybrid is the near future of cloud-based computing.
With the arrival of Azure Stack (an initiative to advance hybrid scenarios) has been a game changer in the industry. This allows for consistent development experience for cloud or traditional applications with the added flexibility to deploy in the cloud or on the premises.
Microsoft has really set the bar high this time, the consistency of their hybrid approach is exactly why organizations find Azure appealing. And what’s being advertised is being sold as well, the consistency across data, management, security, and identity is unparalleled. This is done with fewer systems thus reducing complexity.
A true hybrid cloud helps to address customer requirements around industry regulations relating to connectivity and latency. Contrary to popular belief, a hybrid approach does not mean taking the virtualization and putting it into someone else’s data center. Hybrid cloud is a computing environment which forms a combination of public and private cloud by allowing data and apps to share between them.
This type of data model is perfect because it does not give third-party datacentres like Azure complete access to the data. For non-sensitive computing tasks, this is perfect because sensitive data can be kept on-premises safely behind the company firewall.
Summing this up:
With a hybrid cloud, an organization can scale computing resources while eliminating the need for massive capital investments.
Hybrid setup is ideal for situations such as managing short-term spikes in demand for computing power or porting local apps to the cloud so that local resources can be used for more sensitive data and apps.
As with any Cloud Computing setup, companies only have to pay for resources that they temporarily use without paying for extra equipment thus making this setup the best setup in all possibilities.
