Hybrid Cloud

« Glossary Index

A Cloud Computing model where users implement both a Private Cloud and Public Cloud for their infrastructure computing needs.

Some of the more advanced implementations of Hybrid Cloud include:

  • Common orchestration of both Public and Private cloud with a single console. Resources can be moved between private and public clouds as desired by IT administrators.
  • Single Sign-On between Public and Private cloud resources.  This will usually require technologies such as Microsoft ADFS and Active Directory, where a user can sign in once at their workstation and access both Public and Private cloud resources regardless as to where the service is hosted.
  • Disaster Recovery can be implemented so that data backups are pushed to the Public Cloud.  Other replication technologies can replicate services between private clouds and public clouds, where the public cloud can run all critical services in disaster situations.
