Hybrid cloud is ideal solution for customers that have built their own infrastructure, but wish to move part of their technology into a datacentre for security, business continuity and backup purposes. A hybrid cloud utilises both the on-premise customer servers with private cloud services to take advantage of cloud benefits. Internal IT resources can then configure the services between both locations to serve end users as the business requires. The amount of resource required will depend on the demands of the user base and the application intensity. The user base is unaffected by being served by two locations. In fact, a hybrid solution often increases the application availability by allowing access via new methods including mobile devices.
