The Best of Both Worlds

For any number of reasons, many companies find that their needs dictate total control of their data in some areas but allow for shared environments for other data. Whether it’s storage, servers, the firewall, or some other data center component, you may want dedicated control of certain aspects of your data center but shared in others. Combining features of both a public and private cloud, a hybrid cloud offers the best of both worlds: the cost savings (OpEx) of a public cloud and the increased security (for business critical items) of a private cloud. Hybrid cloud solutions are off-premise with some elements of the data center designated exclusively to your company, while the rest are shared among other customers. For the great majority of customers, a hybrid cloud will actually serve the company better than either a strictly public or private cloud deployment.

Mindsight’s Solutions Architects can work with your company to design a hybrid cloud strategy ideal for your unique specifications.

The Advantages of a Hybrid Cloud

Customized Deployments

You have the flexibility to indicate what you do and do not want to share. For example, you can protect sensitive data with designated storage while sharing the compute power of the cloud.

Less Hardware

The burden of replacing, configuring, and deploying new hardware is greatly reduced in the hybrid cloud model. With the hybrid cloud, you’re only responsible for the hardware you want, or are capable of supporting.

Maximized Utility to the Client

A hybrid cloud deployment is customized to provide the company exactly what they need. Instead of over-provisioning capacity to account for growth or buying for today only to scale tomorrow, hybrid cloud blends the two together.
