A hybrid cloud is a combination of one or more public and private cloud environments. It is a set of virtual resources, some of the hardware owned and managed by third-party companies, and the hardware owned by the enterprise. It is developed by cloud software coordinated by management and automation software, allowing users to access resource automatic extension and dynamic resource allocation support according to the requirements of the service. port. This interconnected stand-alone architecture allows you to run some workloads in a private cloud, some in a public cloud, get resources from it, and use the cloud instead of using the cloud together.
How does a hybrid cloud work?
Public and private clouds work as part of a hybrid cloud in a way that works independently with public or private clouds: virtualizing abstract resources and aggregating them into the cloud; distributing automation software for those resources; and new environments Management tools. When an application programming interface (API), virtual private network (VPN), or wide area network (WAN) connects the two environments as seamlessly as possible, the private and public clouds become hybrid clouds.
This connection is the only way to run a hybrid cloud. Without it, you only have private and private clouds. How a well-developed connection directly affects the operation of the hybrid cloud. The most important technology behind powerful cloud connections is often overlooked: the operating system.
The consistency, reliability, and flexibility of the operating system determine the smoothness of the connection between the public and private clouds. If you use the same operating system to build your own clouds, use your public cloud and link them to a hybrid cloud, your environment will be connected to each other so that they will become ignorant users of their workloads, but build such a hybrid cloud You must start with the operating system.
Hybrid cloud security
Regardless of the environment, security is always the company’s biggest concern. While there are some unique hybrid cloud security challenges (such as data movement, increased complexity, and greater attack surface), the existence of multiple environments may be one of the security measures and the strongest defense against security risks. Hybrid clouds allow organizations to choose where to place workloads and data based on compliance, auditing, policy, or security requirements. A properly designed, integrated, and managed hybrid cloud can be as secure as a traditional local environment, and there are even many reasons why government agencies adopt a hybrid cloud.
Cloud-based application development
Hybrid cloud applications, DevOps and cloud-based applications all help bridge the gap between yesterday’s monolithic architecture and today’s modern application development methods. . Hybrid clouds connect private and public clouds (previously used by development and operations teams) so that applications can be transferred between environments and groups as needed. . It provides a stable computing platform for building, deploying, and managing these applications.
Allowing cloud environments, containers, and virtual platforms to run in parallel in a hybrid cloud environment allows development and operations teams to publish and scale for free when needed. This link attribute allows development and operations teams to work together in the DevOps model: the container supports the process of working with a microservice-based application that collaborates on an integrated environment.
Why wear a red hat
When proprietary code prevents them from interacting with each other, it is difficult to abstract the different benefits of these technologies. In order for companies to realize the value of a hybrid environment, each environment needs to work in every business and IT department, not just a part, but on a unified software stack. Businesses always run a variety of technologies. We see a hybrid cloud today. But cloud-based islands based on proprietary technology are not the right answer, which is why we focus on open hybrid clouds.
Open hybrid clouds provide interoperability, workload mobility and open source flexibility for mixed environments. Supported by thousands of developers in hundreds of communities, they created a platform to connect data centers to the cloud, combine infrastructure with containers and check security restrictions. Open source solutions take into account long-term interactions and simplify deployment processes when migrating from one cloud provider to another or from a local environment.
Our portfolio of cloud products can bridge environments together: optimizing traditional applications, supporting cloud-native apps, and creating a unified experience between them.
