The advantages of a public cloud platform can be summed up in three words: simplicity, scale and savings. It’s simple to manage because all of the hardware and software is managed by your cloud provider. It scales up or down as your needs change. And it saves you money in opex, capex and excess capacity for peak demand periods.
When security trumps savings, it’s time to think about a private cloud. A private cloud can leverage virtualization and converged infrastructure for cloud-like scale and efficiency, but in a private, dedicated system within your own data center. The protected nature of a private cloud provides an extra layer of security and control to meet industry-specific compliance requirements.
A hybrid cloud can provide the best of both worlds: security with scalability, less complexity with more control. With a hybrid cloud deployment, you can find the perfect balance of public and private clouds to meet your needs. It can also provide a convenient path to migration if your rip and replace isn’t realistic across your entire business all at once.
