Cloud Computing: Hybrid Cloud is Most Common Architecture

By Dick Weisinger

Hybrid cloud computing is a unified computing infrastructure that incorporates data and services from both private and public clouds.

Hybrid cloud has become the most common architecture used by organizations, according to a survey by Denodo. It is used by 53 percent of organizations.

The Denodo report found that 90 percent of organizations are using either AWS or Microsoft Azure cloud services.

Some of the benefits of hybrid cloud computing include:

  • Support for remote workforce
  • Reduced costs.
  • Scalability — able to address spikes in demand
  • Business continuity
  • Increased agility and innovation
  • Improved security and risk management

Wendy Pfeiffer, CIO of Nutanix, said that “as organizations continue to grapple with complex digital transformation initiatives, flexibility and security are critical components to enable seamless and reliable cloud adoption. The enterprise has progressed in its understanding and adoption of hybrid cloud, but there is still work to do when it comes to reaping all of its benefits. In the next few years, we’ll see businesses rethinking how to best utilize hybrid cloud, including hiring for hybrid computing skills and reskilling IT teams to keep up with emerging technologies.”
