Hybrid Cloud In The Era Of Hyper Conversion


Digital transformation is changing the world around us in unimaginable ways. Digital disruptors like Uber, Ola, and Airbnb, who are born-in-the-cloud enterprises, have radically transformed business models. There is phenomenal digital transformation happening across the world and across industries. Cloud has literally swept the world. The technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace. In fact, the world is has moved from a purely private cloud model to a public one and now the trend is for hybrid cloud—which is expanding exponentially.

Defining Hybrid Cloud and mobility for next-gen technology

Hybrid cloud is an integrated cloud that uses private and public clouds to perform different functions in the same organization. Separate cloud infrastructures can operate independently and communicate through encrypted connections. At the same time, enterprises can utilize the technology for portability of data and applications. An arrangement like that aids organizations store privileged data on private cloud infrastructure. All the while, it retains the advantages of drawing on the computational resources of a public cloud to run specific applications, particularly those that rely on that data.

Advantages of a hybrid cloud business model

Hybrid cloud tends to keep data exposure to a minimum because sensitive data is not stored over the long term on public cloud. Additionally, it provides efficient cloud experience. The technology is affordable and at the same time scalable. This is especially ideal for small businesses that are just starting out like startups or SMEs that struggle for lack of resources.

The biggest advantage is that it not only provides agility to small businesses, it gives them a competitive edge. Large corporations are encumbered with legacy systems which was hugely capital intensive. Now, with all this hardware sitting at one place, a big chunk of their capital is already stuck with systems that will anyway be replaced. But it cannot be replaced overnight. Moreover, there are maintenance costs involved which make operations unviable. Big Information Technology companies are in a fix as to how to completely abandon such a big portion of their investment.

“Hybrid Cloud actually provides enterprises with the best of both the worlds. While on the one hand, It delivers the flexibility of a private server, on the other it also confers the advantages of public Cloud,” said Shashank Dixit, CEO, Deskera.

Utilize hyper conversion and virtualization for optimum cloud delivery

On the other hand, hybrid cloud gives small and medium enterprises flexibility and mobility and aids innovation. It brings greater digital transformation and easier operational skills to the table. It also lends itself easily to customization. Consequently, Indian enterprises can benefit the most out of these IT solutions to help boost efficiency and productivity.

The current models incorporate elements of cloud, data analytics, next-generation security, and social mobility. In some industries, the adoption of cloud has led to around 50 percent reduction in production costs such as those in the Oil and Gas sector. In fields such as online insurance sales, the adoption has led to revenues increasing by 15 percent, costs getting reduced by 15 percent, and 25 percent lead conversion.
