Inside the Hybrid Cloud Part 1: Redefine Services and Delivery Methods
A hybrid cloud is the combination of at least one private cloud with at least one public cloud-based infrastructure, producing an environment that provides transparent user access to the hybrid cloud and is capable of dynamic scalability to manage uneven demand. The part 1 of this two-part series looks at the hybrid cloud, the services it makes available and the new business paradigm it has engendered.
The implementation of the vast number of available services can be a daunting task, which has led to an enhancement of the hybrid cloud: the federated cloud. Federated clouds help you manage the consumption of the “as a Service” components. The federated cloud helps to bring order out of the confusion that may develop with all the services available in the cloud.
