One might argue that moving workloads to the hybrid cloud is actually not always practical.

Why? Because moving a steady state workload to the cloud doesn’t necessarily result in cost savings. The incremental cost of slowly growing workloads on the infrastructure and applications is almost negligible. With all your existing equipment already at hand, scaling ‘only’ includes a one-off capital expense for new hardware.

But hybrid cloud solutions are still widely popular and seen as the future of cloud computing in business. Here are 4 challenges that a hybrid cloud can solve for you:

High cost of increased capacity

If your business scales so fast, or the equipment you require is so investment heavy that the incremental cost of increasing capacity in-house is high, a hybrid cloud is the way to go. Extending the in-house capacity and connecting it to the cloud even means you won’t waste any of your already purchased infrastructure.

Match demand for dev/test workloads

The amount of your dev/test workloads varies considerably over time? Moving the process from in-house data centers to the cloud allows you to increase capacity and scale your workload to match demand. It also enables you to tailor infrastructure to the dev/test workload in the future.

Improve network quality

Is there an area of your business that uses up a lot of bandwidth? Move it to the cloud. As a result, the in-house processes will experience improved network quality in terms of availability and reliability. This also allows you to take advantage of the increased security measures that come with most hybrid cloud solutions – if you pick the right provider.

Planning ahead to reduce costs

Are you following a business development timeline and have laid out your goals for the foreseeable future? Migrating to the cloud can help you reach your goals at reduced costs. Most business needs are known in advance, such as peak season, product/service launches, etc. With time to plan and execute available, most cloud infrastructure and applications can be scaled by tailoring the hardware to the challenge at hand. This can bring significant cost reductions, otherwise inflicted by expanding data center capacity.
