My Definition of Hybrid Cloud
What is hybrid cloud? In my mind, hybrid cloud means extending my on-premises estate into a data center facility owned and provided by a third party. The key to this definition is in the word “extension.” A true extension means I can retain my existing operating model, security model, and provisioning systems and seamlessly migrate applications from my on-premises environment to my provider’s platform, just as I do within my on-premises environment.
