Defining the Hybrid Cloud
Organizations are subscribing to multiple cloud services from different cloud service providers for different IT or business requirements; therefore, they believe they have a hybrid cloud.
Organizations believe that hybrid cloud is simply an IT environment that uses a mix of public cloud services and dedicated IT assets including virtualization and private cloud.
Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment which uses a mix of on-premises, private cloud and, public cloud services with orchestration between the two platforms. By allowing workloads to move between private and public clouds as computing needs and costs change, hybrid cloud gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options.
