An Overview

As the popularity of cloud computing continues to rise so does the need for businesses to ensure data security. The cloud infrastructure is no longer viewed as a tool, it is now used to accomplish business goals and encrypt sensitive data. Based on the business requirements, cloud computing is divided into three categories- private, public and hybrid. Hybrid cloud computing combines private and public clouds to maintain high-security with flexibility. It also enhances deployment options, optimizes your existing infrastructure, security and compliance. According to Gartner’s research, by 2021, over 75% of midsize and large organizations will adopt a multi-cloud or hybrid IT strategy. Let’s explore some key benefits of hybrid cloud computing and it’s importance in data protection.

The Difference Between Public, Private, and Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid Cloud Computing

Benefits of Hybrid Cloud Computing

  • Flexible
Private cloud limits businesses and employees from sharing or accessing data through unknown devices. Whereas a hybrid environment stores the data in a form that can be shared or accessed anywhere and anytime. It brings flexibility in business operations while ensuring both security and mobility.
  • Enhanced Security
Hybrid cloud enables companies to address compliance and security issues effectively. It combines cloud resources and dedicated servers to enhance business operations and safeguard customers’ personal data in a secure environment.
  • Cost-efficient
Hybrid cloud provides pay-as-you-go service which eliminates the need to build heavy infrastructure for data storage. It enables businesses to invest more funds in other critical projects to enhance business efficiency and customer satisfaction.

Hybrid Cloud and Data Protection

  1. Implementing a hybrid approach can minimize business and customer data exposure. It enables enterprises to place workloads and data based on compliance, audit, policy, or security requirements. Data migration in the hybrid cloud is encrypted with application programming interfaces (APIs) to transmit resources and workloads.
  2. GDPR compliant IT organizations should implement cloud models for extensive data security and encryption. The hybrid-cloud architecture provides secure on-premise filers for access, data encryption, user identity, and device management while limiting data breaches.
  3. The hybrid cloud simplifies the file recovery process by consolidating it into a single store. Data consolidation enables organizations to access and manage data of multiple sites in real-time. It also provides a file-level restore feature to restore/backup individual files without having to deal with the whole data storage.
