A hybrid cloud data center architecture is an evolutionary strategy that allows you to establish the right combination of cloud and traditional IT to suit your needs. With this architecture, workloads can be exchanged between environments as computing needs and budgets change. With this interchangeability, you can choose what data to store in public clouds and what to retain in private clouds, which gives you unparalleled flexibility.
Benefits that you can realize with a hybrid cloud data center compared to other cloud architectures include:
By customizing a hybrid cloud, you can meet clients' needs quickly. Besides linking old and new systems, a hybrid cloud can create an underlying structure that meets your business requirements.
As part of a hybrid cloud architecture, you can take advantage of the scalability provided by the public cloud. Depending on demand, you can scale up or down easily. Furthermore, you can delegate non-critical operations to the public cloud to reduce strain on the private cloud.
A hybrid cloud is advantageous if you have fluctuating application and data needs. Applications that generally run on private clouds can be configured to burst into a public cloud during high-demand periods. You can then meet spikes in demand with additional computing resources.
Unlike on-premises data centers, which experience significant lag times for remote access, hybrid cloud data centers can leverage cloud infrastructure to be accessible to your remote employees with minimal lag time.
Lower Spending on Infrastructure
With hybrid cloud capabilities, you can invest in fewer servers and rely on the public cloud for computing needs during peak demand periods.
With a hybrid cloud data center, you can have the best of both worlds: security, performance, reliability, scalability, and cost savings across on-premises data centers and multiple public and private clouds.
Chip makers with existing on-premises systems should consider a hybrid cloud environment. Cloud bursting can handle peak load requirements, while less portable workloads can remain on-premises.
Chip designers can work more efficiently, improve performance, and turn jobs around quickly in a hybrid cloud environment. It doesn’t matter how big or small your company is or how much infrastructure you have on-premises, electronic design automation (EDA) vendors like Synopsys make cloud adoption affordable and scalable for you.
