The hybrid cloud model has now emerged as the preferred model of implementation and is driving the progression of the cloud industry. A research study by Gartner reveals that 77 percent of enterprise global infrastructure decision-makers that are planning, implementing, or upgrading cloud infrastructure are involved in the hybrid cloud environment

FREMONT, CA: The cloud computing industry is skyrocketing in terms of developments each year. New trends are emerging in the blink of an eye, and the future of the cloud is going to be hybrid. By combining increased security for mission-critical applications that are part of the private cloud package with flexibility and scalability offered by the public cloud, the hybrid cloud delivers an end product that is the best of both worlds. The hybrid cloud model has now emerged as the preferred model of implementation and is driving the progression of the cloud industry. A research study by Gartner reveals that 77 percent of enterprise global infrastructure decision-makers that are planning, implementing, or upgrading cloud infrastructure are involved in the hybrid cloud environment.

Here are three emerging trends within the hybrid cloud computing space.

Consistent Hybrid Experience

Hybrid cloud has been pinned to be the future of the cloud for quite some time now. This is likely to turn into a reality in 2020. Innovations within the hybrid cloud segment will help organizations ensure a seamless experience across the environment instead of looking at public cloud and on-premise or private cloud as separate pieces. The barrier of latency will be overcome, delivering a more consistent hybrid experience.

The Rise of Hybrid Multicloud

Organizations of all kinds are picking and mixing technologies and services from multiple cloud service providers to suit their specific business needs. This helps prevent vendor lock-ins and allows organizations to gain from the best of the breed capabilities. Hybrid cloud will soon become the new IT benchmark as multiple cloud providers become part of the hybrid cloud puzzle. By using a mix of on-premise and/or public or private cloud from different providers, hybrid cloud provides organizations the freedom and flexibility needed to run their workload on-premise or cloud and even change cloud providers. A hybrid cloud approach facilitates the adoption of standard management and software development capabilities across the environment.

Importance of Edge Computing in Hybrid Cloud Strategies

Edge computing refers to a model where computations are performed as close as possible to the source of the data. This will soon become vital for hybrid cloud computing operations. The combination of a hybrid cloud with edge computing adds a great value proposition for organizations. It enables a hybrid cloud ecosystem that can be used to aggregate the most relevant data and back end functions. At the same time, edge computing supports processing and real-time analytics. The increase in the number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices will set up a platform for organizations to leverage the combination of edge computing with a hybrid cloud model to discover key business insights.
