Hybrid prepares your business for the future by integrating private and public cloud

As more workloads move to the cloud, enterprises need to balance the pay-as-you-go benefits of public cloud with increased demand for the on-premises control of private cloud. Hybrid establishes the right cloud combination for both.

cloud for your business

Private Cloud

Private cloud features an infrastructure built for variable workloads, bursts of high-compute processing, and elastic storage needs combined with self-service for users and developers. It is best suited for classic IT applications and for mission-critical workloads that store and process sensitive information.

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud combines and easily manages the unique capabilities of private cloud and public cloud. Enterprise IT can balance flexibility and control while laying an architectural foundation that quickly scales services, speeds up application development, and reduces overall IT costs.

Public Cloud

Public cloud offers the same basic infrastructure as private cloud but is managed by third parties using a pay-as-you-go model. While this greatly reduces control and oversight, it makes public cloud well-adapted for developing and testing cloud-native applications that benefit from fast access to on-demand resources.
