The combination of dedicated and/or private cloud hosting with public cloud hosting.
A hybrid configuration provides the security features, performance and customisation of dedicated hardware along with the cost savings, utility and bursting aspects that cloud technology offers.
Private Cloud is also referred to as “Dedicated Virtualization Hosting” (VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, etc.).
When properly planned, a hybrid configuration can help lower your costs without increasing your security risk or decreasing application performance.
This combination of cloud and dedicated hosting can help businesses of all sizes, with the caveat that while cloud technology may benefit everyone, it is not meant for everything. Figuring out how to efficiently implement a hybrid platform is based on a number of business-specific factors. Finding a trusted, experienced cloud provider is key to helping you discover how hybrid best fits into your business.
Work with PBT to find the best hybrid solution for you to "cure the common cloud".
