A hybrid cloud can be defined as a combination of public and private clouds bound together by either proprietary or standardized technology, which enables application and data portability. It could be a combination of a private cloud inside an organization with one or more public cloud providers or a private cloud hosted on third party premises with one or more public cloud providers. Concept of hybrid cloud computing offers a greater flexibility to businesses while offering choice in terms of keeping control and security. Hybrid clouds are usually deployed by organizations willing to push part of their workloads to public clouds either for cloud bursting purposes or for projects requiring faster implementation. Cloud bursting is defined as a dynamic deployment of an application running on a private cloud into public clouds to meet an unexpected demand, such as a retail company’s need to meet increasing traffic associated with holiday shopping.
