What is the Hybrid-Cloud?
When organizations consider moving their production to the public cloud, they often assume it requires an all or nothing approach, such that all of their production environment must be moved to the cloud or nothing at all. This is actually far from the common cloud architecture that we see most organizations adopting. Today, organizations are often moving portions of their production environment to the cloud or consuming some specific cloud-native services, while maintaining some operations on-premises. This concept of spanning some of an organization's footprint into the cloud while maintaining some processes on-premises is one example of a hybrid-cloud model.
One benefit of the hybrid-cloud model is that organizations can span their production and even disaster recovery environments over multiple locations. By doing so, if that organization were to suffer a data loss or outage at one location, they've effectively minimized the risk of sustaining major repercussions by creating this redundancy. This proliferation of data copies into multiple locations and creating mirrored environments in multiple data centers is helping organizations remain resilient to data loss, outages, and cyberattacks.
