Wireless Technologies-Hybrid Cloud

What is it?:

A hybrid cloud is an integrated cloud service that uses both public and private clouds to preform distinct functions within the same organisation they can be implemented in a number of ways.

  • Separate providers team up to provide both private and public services as a service that is integrated.
  • Individual cloud providers offer a company a complete hybrid package.
  • Organisations who manage their own private clouds and sing up to a public cloud service, which then is integrate into their infrastructure

What Does it do?:

The hybrid cloud allows the company to have a backup server in a sense, meaning that the company can use the public cloud for standard operations that are non sensitive, only relying on the private cloud when it is required and all of their platforms are seamlessly integrated. For example, if used for eCommerce,you could host the brochure on the public cloud and the eCommerce side of the business on the private cloud.


Reviews:

I cannot find any reviews because it is a software that is not tied to one certain company but is believed to be one of the greater innovations in cloud software.
