It’s no secret that businesses are embracing and migrating to cloud computing. But the reality is that it is hard to break away from the technology and infrastructure you’re used to. Leaping straight into the world of enterprise cloud computing is a decision not to be taken lightly, and it’s good to know there are options available that could ease the transition for you.

Many companies feel more comfortable working with their own, private solution rather than following the trend into publicly hosted clouds. But there may be a way to explore the benefits of the public cloud without losing control over the private infrastructure you have grown so fond of.

Hybrid cloud computing runs a public and private cloud in parallel, and is a popular choice for medium and large businesses taking on cloud computing. This method allows you to enjoy the security of a private cloud, and the flexibility of a public solution together. To help you better understand if going hybrid could work for you, here are some pros and cons to consider.



Your network could gain more flexibility and scale by sharing its load across a public and private cloud solution.

Save money
A private cloud solution can be pricey, so going hybrid could be an affordable solution for a medium size enterprise.

Go green
A hybrid cloud solution will add to your green credentials with its environment friendly infrastructure.


In some cases (in the financial sector, for example) where information is considered confidential, a public cloud could increase security risks.

Complicated networks
Hybrid cloud computing could lead to a messy and complicated network if not taken care of properly.

Complex Service Level Agreement
A detailed Service Level Agreement for both your private and public cloud providers will ensure its performance meets your expectations.

Now is the right time to invest in enterprise cloud computing, and with the support of experts like Amazon Web Services, you’re in good hands. Explore the benefits of enterprise cloud computing by going hybrid, and see how it could help you take your business forward, fast.
