Flexibility. In a digital business, you must be able to change directions quickly. Your company might need to combine public clouds, private clouds, and on-premises resources to gain a competitive advantage.
Security. Hybrid cloud allows you to keep some data in a more controlled environment, like a private cloud. You can utilize the scaling benefits of a public cloud with the privacy and security assurances of a dedicated cloud infrastructure.
Workload Optimization. Cloud hybrid systems allow you to leverage the best computing environment for every workload. You can keep your simpler workloads on-prem or in private cloud infrastructure. You can move your complex workloads to the public cloud, where additional capacity is low-cost and easily accessible.
Innovation. The hybrid cloud accelerates innovation by enabling quick prototyping of new ideas and faster time to market for new products and services.
Cost. With a hybrid cloud, you need to purchase equipment for on-premises and some private cloud options.
Performance. When transferring data between private and public clouds, you risk a bottleneck. Transfer to the public cloud happens over the internet, which can be too slow to meet your needs.
