Hybrid Cloud brings the best features and benefits of private (on-premises infrastructure) and public cloud services together. It’s an excellent option for businesses looking for highly dynamic and powerful cloud hosting tailored to your specific requirements.
We provide hybrid solutions through various providers, including AWS, Azure and Google.
A combination of public and private cloud hosting, Hybrid Cloud hosting allows you to maintain a private cloud infrastructure with the option to take advantage of additional resources in the public cloud when you need them.
For instance, a high-profile site may require incoming users to go through Cloudflare to mitigate brute-force attacks and hacking attempts on a public cloud hosting platform before entering a private hosting infrastructure that requires lower latency and cloud resources. Similarly, e-commerce websites benefit from additional cloud resource and public cloud support at times of high-online traffic such as Black Friday.

The three components required to build a hybrid hosting environment:
The Benefits of Hybrid Cloud Hosting
Hybrid Cloud hosting offers real, and measurable benefits. Partnering with trusted third-party experts at Digital Craftsmen is an easy and cost-effective way for businesses to bring the Hybrid Cloud model into your operations.
Not being tied or restricted to one vendor
Choosing what and where you store your data
Managing cloud costs by hosting on private data centres
Agility and scalability
Provisioning of resources to meet demand spikes without incurring additional cloud costs
Resiliency and interoperability
Running workloads in both cloud environments
Knowing exactly where your data is avoids any potential issues in heavily regulated industries where data must reside
Full control of exactly where your business-critical information is in the private cloud hosting environment
However, it doesn’t come without challenges.
Running private/on-prem servers in-house and then integrating public cloud infrastructure together requires a substantial CAPEX investment and then costly ongoing maintenance and management.
Hybrid cloud considerations are:
On-premises and public cloud approaches are not fully compatible and do not always sync up, producing issues around latency and other complexities.
Not planning which cloud option provides the most secure and cost-effective environment can be a costly mistake.
Complex Access Management
Implementing centralised protocols backed up by SSO is essential for securing data.
A substantial CapEx investment from the outset for a business, requiring costly ongoing maintenance, putting a drain on internal resources which can be better deployed elsewhere.
For managing additional software such as help desks, databases, and the many software tools businesses use for their operations.
Synchronisation of Data
It’s easy for cloud costs to spiral if data is not managed properly.
The skills required for managing public and private cloud differ, and the learning curve to close the skills gap has often led to costly mistakes due to human error.
