[Infographic] Why Hybrid Cloud?

 Tell me, Why Hybrid Cloud?

Why hybrid cloud? Why not hybrid cloud is the question you’ll be asking yourself after this article!

Hybrid Cloud: “A hybrid cloud is an integrated cloud service utilizing both private and public clouds to perform distinct functions within the same organization.” (http://www.interoute.com/cloud-article/what-hybrid-cloud)

The Road to Hybrid Cloud. The cloud computing model continues to create a larger and larger footprint in the IT landscape as enterprises pursue the model’s benefits including but not limited to: 1) shared resources 2) facilitated access to information and resources from anywhere on any device 3) on demand provisioning and reallocation of computational resources. The greatest benefits are typically achieved using public cloud services however most organizations are unwilling to put ALL their data (particularly sensitive information) into public cloud solutions. In order to still reap the benefits of the cloud computing model, organizations will implement some solutions on internal private cloud platforms.

What is Hybrid Cloud and How Does It Work. A hybrid cloud refers to an environment that runs both public and private cloud services AND provides a way to to share data between them. Typically the data shared with public cloud services is limited and secured/encrypted to reduce exposure. Exposing a server within your firewall to a public cloud service is not what we mean by hybrid. A hybrid cloud connects 2 or more internal and external cloud platforms in such a way that they can exchange information.

What Are the Advantages. A hybrid cloud allows organizations to leverage the efficiency gains of the cloud computing model without having to expose all their data to public cloud services by providing mechanisms to securely share data. Once mechanisms have been defined for exchanging data between internal and external cloud platforms, CIOs can incrementally control what data is exposed to public cloud solutions. The ability to integrate internal data with external/public cloud services is hugely beneficial (if not required) to leverage public cloud services in a compelling and useful fashion.

The Benefits of frevvo. When you sign up for an account on app.frevvo.com, you’re using frevvo in the public cloud. If you deploy frevvo within your organization, you are setting up frevvo as a multi-tenant, private cloud solution. Either way, there are many examples of frevvo participating in hybrid cloud architectures. A frevvo account running in the public cloud could be configured to securely access LDAP information running within a private cloud. Enterprises running frevvo within their private cloud infrastructure can write data to google spreadsheets (public cloud). Another example is utilizing frevvo’s database connector to allow frevvo from either a public or private cloud to integrate with any back-end relational database.

In Summary. This cloud computing phenomenon migrates both, public cloud and private cloud services, to solve your business needs. From small business to large enterprises, being able to keep private information secure as well as hosting public information is very beneficial. As noted on the infographic (pictured to the left) using frevvo in the hybrid cloud is a business strategy to lead you to successful business agility.

    Good article Dan. But why does the article state “If you deploy frevvo within your organization, you are setting up frevvo as a multi-tenant, private cloud solution.”? What other tenants would be using your private cloud?

      Scott,
      First, thank you for reading the blog and enjoying it as well! Now, to answer your question large organizations may wish to use multi-tenancy to either separate the lifecycle of the workflows (dev, test, prod) or to separate workflows by line of business. When you install frevvo in house you’re essentially installing the same software we run in the cloud. We are trying to relay the message that frevvo as a platform can live on either side (public or private). Hope this answers your question! If you have any other questions or need further assistance please reach out to our fantastic team at support@frevvo.com Thanks again Scott.

      -Dan
