Frequently asked questions

Does my business need a Hybrid Cloud solution?

Hybrid clouds are quickly becoming a popular solution for businesses seeking to optimise their performance and availability while maintaining costs. Hybrid cloud solutions combine the best of both worlds — private clouds with higher security measures, and public clouds with more flexibility. Hybrid cloud computing is the perfect choice for most businesses, as it allows you to customise your needs, ensure continuous availability, better manage costs, and more effectively scale operations based on fluctuating demand. It also provides superior IT agility, making it possible to deploy new applications faster and easier than ever before. Businesses that aren't sure if they need a hybrid cloud solution should evaluate their current situation to understand how this kind of platform could benefit them.

Difference between Hybrid Cloud and multi-cloud

Hybrid and multi-cloud solutions both provide a way for organisations to make use of cloud computing services. Hybrid clouds feature elements of both public and private cloud options; the hardware, storage, networks and other resources are combined together to form a single solution. Multi-cloud solutions, on the other hand, deploy multiple cloud sources that are independent from one another. While hybrid clouds can be used for testing or production purposes through a single vendor environment, multi-cloud solutions allow organisations to take advantage of different vendors and different types of services without being restricted to a single source. The main distinction between hybrid and multi-cloud is that one solution uses fewer vendors at its foundation while the other requires more to create its fully developed setup.

Will the Cloud deployment have any compatibility issues with legacy systems?

It is important to consider the compatibility between cloud deployment and legacy systems while planning a Hybrid Cloud Solution. Depending upon the nature of your enterprise infrastructure, there may be some compatibility issues that arise, such as software versioning or system resources optimization. To prevent any costly obstacles down the line, it is essential to run a comprehensive assessment in order to ensure complete compatibility of your existing hardware and software components with your Hybrid Cloud Solution or other available cloud infrastructures. Doing so will help ensure smooth integration of legacy applications with new cloud-enabled services and technologies.

How do I get started with a Hybrid Cloud?

To get started with a hybrid cloud solution, it's important to consider your data management needs. Hybrid cloud solutions provide scalability and flexibility without sacrificing control, allowing businesses to identify which data requires more security and should be kept on-prem or in a private cloud, or can it be kept in the public cloud. Once you have outlined your business's needs and identified which data should be stored on a private and public cloud, you'll be ready to create a roadmap for building out your hybrid cloud strategy. With proper planning and setup, a hybrid cloud configuration will ensure reliable, secure operations for your business. Contact us to find out how we can start this for you.

What are the benefits of using a Hybrid Cloud?

Hybrid cloud solutions are becoming increasingly popular among businesses of all sizes. Hybrid clouds provide a unique combination of public cloud services with private and on-premises resources, offering unparalleled scalability, cost savings, flexibility and security. Hybrid clouds allow organisations to customise the solution to meet their specific business requirements while preserving privacy and control over sensitive data and processes. With a hybrid cloud solution, businesses can quickly scale infrastructure up or down depending on the needs of their business, ensuring that they always have the resources they need at an optimal cost. Hybrid clouds also increase security due to their distributed nature – if one part of the system is compromised or fails, the other part is still available to serve customers' needs. Hybrid clouds are driving innovation in many industries and provide an excellent way for organisations to get the most out of their IT investments.
