Hybrid Cloud is a computing environment which combines a public cloud and a private cloud (on premise) by allowing applications and data to be shared between them.
Having a balance between public and private cloud can be advantageous, both with regard to IT infrastructure and financial expenditure. Maintaining consistency in security policy and application performance between the public and private environments should be considered a fundamental aspect of Hybrid Cloud.
Hybrid Cloud Overview
The ability to extend beyond your on-premise environment to one, or multiple clouds, gives you the best option to ensure your business needs are not limited by any particular platform. You can then scale based on any number of factors at your disposal; such as cost per platform, feature set, familiarity and track record.
Keeping all your repositories, code, ISO’s and scripts in a single shared platform across teams ensures that critical IP information isn’t at risk. Role Based Access Control will continue to ensure that only the right people access the proper resources when working in agile development houses. The platform was designed from the ground up to address the accessibility challenges of Devops.
A key concern for Cloud heavy companies are sprawling costs. The convenience factor of “spin-up on-demand” make it exceedingly easy for costs to grow dramatically. With our platform, you’ll be able to put quotas in place that limit the spend by individuals and teams, as well as providing visibility. The platform will also allow you to programmatically turn down workloads that exceed their lifespan and reclaim that budget.
The ongoing health of an application and the ability to drill down to the root of a problem can mean the difference between fixing an issue within minutes or days. A key element of the platform is the ability to monitor the workloads from all angles such as customer journey, business transaction pipeline, latency, jitter, code execution and multiple other data points to give you an easily digestible view into the health of that application.
Examples of Hybrid Cloud Usage
Hybrid Cloud for Retail
A retail business is looking to expand their digital footprint and capture additional market share. Their goal is to rapidly deploy micro services that allow rapid changes to various e-commerce elements.
By utilising Hybrid Cloud, they can benefit in a number of ways. Success of newly deployed services can be gauged directly through immediate sales tracking. Instant comparisons show which version of the application is achieving the highest conversion rate. A shared development platform reduces the duplication of effort within development teams, allowing them to deliver faster go-live dates. The finance team is given a real-time view of actual cost and scaling factors, helping to ensure projects stay within budget.
Hybrid Cloud for Finance
A financial firm is looking to build new applications that provide better digital options for their B2B & B2C operations. A rapid rate of development is required, whilst compliance must also be ensured across the board.
Utilising Hybrid Cloud, the business will have direct control access over development team resources, ensuring critical data is never passed through unauthorised teams. Detailed compliance checks can be put in place which determine where certain workloads reside, allowing approved ring-fencing of applications. Real-time monitoring of applications can help to ensure data does not cross over into unintended systems. Any delay or failure in a financial transaction will be detected and a real-time alert will be provided, often with a root cause analysis automatically provided to accelerate a rapid resolution.
How we can help you
Working with us
The rate of change in the modern technology landscape is greater now than it has been for the last 20+ years. This makes it critical for companies who want to remain competitive to remain flexible in their ability to consume new technologies. The further a company falls behind, the greater the effort required to catch-up to the current benchmark.
We work closely with companies to build platforms and roadmaps. Our solutions maintain a good balance between remaining flexible enough to incorporate new technologies that can advance the business, whilst ensuring that a core focus remains on delivering tangible outcomes.
Throughout the engagement process, we will provide ongoing consultation and feedback that helps determine which technologies to look out for, where they can be a good fit and how they can be incorporated into the environment in question.
