Hybrid Cloud

Although ‘the cloud’ is a universal expression that involves a large number of connected through a real time communication network, it can be split down into three separate clouds; Public, Private and Hybrid.

The Public Cloud, like the UK’s very ‘The Cloud’, is called a ‘Public cloud’ when the services are rendered over a network that is open for public use and is currently being used by 39% of people using the cloud. 34% are using the Private Cloud, which is mainly used by businesses so share work and workloads between employees. Finally there is the Hybrid, currently used by 27% which is the best of both clouds, Hybrid cloud provides the flexibility of in house applications with the fault tolerance and scalability of cloud based services.

In 5 years’ time however this will not be the case, with both the Public cloud and the Private cloud expected to decline to 32% and 25% respectively and the Hybrid cloud to rise to 43%, due to the majority of people needing to have both the best aspects of both the public and private clouds.

Cloud Computing

With the latest trends in cloud computing and its forecasted evolution, it seems the next hurdle is finding a way to create an ecosystem that includes all disparate cloud computing providers.

This ecosystem needs to find a way of fitting into the existing IT infrastructure of an organisation. The magnitude of the task is put into perspective when one considers that each of these private cloud computing services has their own management APIs, service catalogues and technology stacks.

Cloud Computing:  at the core of SME’s bread and butter

It is already a generally accepted notion that cloud computing is almost indispensible for SMEs. Jim Cramer of CNBC deemed it as one of “the holy trinity of tech”, i.e. social, mobile, and cloud. This is particularly true for public cloud computing, which can be used without the high cost, technological complexity and need for staff to support the virtual infrastructure that comes with private cloud computing. It has levelled the playing field allowing even the smallest of enterprises to influence their market by allowing them to respond to real-time market conditions and bring services to market without delay.  Continue reading
