Cloud computing and Hybrid Cloud has brought the computational power in the pockets of all with the flexibility of traditional server. Just in the pockets, because anyone with a credit card can access one of the largest facilities in the world, such as Amazon AWS, Rackspace Cloud without problem and take advantage of its computational power for any kind of purpose. In this way, those are in need of one or more servers and their maintenance, do not need to invest the money at least initially, most has no fixed costs and especially no maintenance costs.
So, we must reorganize the data centers to keep up with the evolution and for the companies apart the two options to choose from, (datacenter and public cloud), now the hybrid cloud becoming prominent.
Hybrid Cloud and the Era of Startup : Era that could be defined without Borders
Public cloud, though very attractive from the point of view of costs, it really does not seem to be able to meet those essential safety requirements that the companies want for their applications. The hybrid cloud, however, provides the positive features for expandability without boundaries of public cloud and with the security of a traditional service.
Then it enters into a new era that could be defined without borders and virtualized data center, which integrates with the public cloud and are able to offer the buyers all the means to decide where to run the applications and store data, based on their own business needs. Hybrid cloud is in fact suitable to accommodate the migration of a large number of applications with low utilization. These applications must still be reached, with the same rights and permissions of all time and the hybrid cloud can only facilitate this need, counting the operational costs.
Hybrid Cloud and the Era of Startup : Closer to ideal
At the same time, hybrid cloud proves an ideal environment for the development of applications and can support the test phases. Developers can create the infrastructure as they need for development and testing, before bringing into production applications of interest. The hybrid cloud is also suitable to accommodate the data storage as a service, reducing the costs with a cut that goes from 60 to 80 percent.
Customers are increasingly looking for cloud storage solutions to complement its facilities as secondary storage, backup, archiving and so on, for the whole series of data (about 80 percent) that is written once and never again will be accessed. The disaster recovery is another area of incredible success for the hybrid cloud.
Disaster Recovery is in fact is a multi-billion setup, with a lot of redundant structures, however; only 10 percent of the real potential is ever used. The hybrid cloud could allow the businesses to use the cloud as a means to curb the problems of failure, without losing the business continuity and cost still considerable. Finally, one certainly can not forget the support the hybrid cloud can give analytic workloads, it is not possible to predict a required computational power and storage before hand. This inherently unpredictable and is therefore necessary to rely on elastic structures, capable of supporting even the analysis of big data.
