Hybrid Cloud Explained

What is hybrid cloud? At a high level, hybrid cloud is simply the combination of public and private cloud environments working together to run your applications or workloads. With the growth of microservices, container-based applications, and orchestration tools like Kubernetes, we’re seeing companies across all industries pressured to take advantage of public clouds. However, it’s nearly never an option to make that transition in one fell swoop—a gradual transformation must be made.

Diving deeper into hybrid cloud, the resulting architectures prove to be unwieldy, and without the right tools, it can become an expensive development and operations effort. In this video, I’ll overview the basics of a hybrid cloud environment by tackling a common use-case: migrating a legacy application to the cloud. We’ll then highlight and elaborate on key tenets of all hybrid clouds: interoperability, scalability, portability, and security.
