Often called “the best of both worlds,” hybrid clouds combine on-premises infrastructure, or private clouds, with public clouds so organizations can reap the advantages of both. In a hybrid cloud, data and applications can move between private and public clouds for greater flexibility and more deployment options.
Advantages of hybrid clouds:
Control—maintain a private infrastructure for sensitive assets.
Flexibility—take advantage of additional resources in the public cloud when you need them.
Cost-effectiveness—ability to scale to the public cloud, pay only when needed.
