Definition of Hybrid Cloud Integration

Hybrid cloud architecture combines the benefits of public cloud systems and on-premise structures.

The quality of company-wide co-operation depends especially on the availability of the information required. In public cloud solutions IT resources are outsourced to external platforms. This brings benefits in relation to scalability as well as the cost efficiency of data administration. There are however weaknesses in security and data protection. This primarily effect information critical to the business such as data held in CRM systems. As a rule this data is administered in private cloud systems. The data is kept comparatively secure within the company’s own (on-premise) IT infrastructure. When private and public cloud structures are mixed together this is known as a hybrid cloud system.
