It is essentially an IT architecture fusion of public and private cloud services. What exactly does that mean?
Public cloud is computing services offered by third-party providers, and made available over the internet for anyone to use or purchase. Private cloud, on the other hand, is computing services and on-premises infrastructure hosted by the service provider. Hybrid cloud computing combines these two environments allowing data and applications to be shared between the two.
Hybrid cloud computing is very necessary especially when it comes to the agility of workloads. This supports workload convenience and deployment across the different cloud environments. The most popular use of hybrid cloud is with Amazon Web Services (AWS) wherein its cloud infrastructure and services are deployed into a range of locations.
