With the increasing information load and the need for speedy, cost effective and flexible data management, many companies are switching on to cloud computing to achieve a competitive edge in their respective markets.

Cloud computing has been experiencing considerable growth in recent years owing to its ability to help businesses and individuals in easy storage and accessibility of their data at any time anywhere in the world. The upcoming technology helps enterprises achieve operational efficiency; maximize Return on Investment (ROI) and cuts down capital expenditure on the IT hardware. It gives enterprises an option of storing data using hosted services removing the need for physical space on the front end.

Hybrid Cloud: Best Foot Forward

Using Public cloud, a service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available to the general public over the Internet. However, a private cloud is implemented within the corporate firewall under the control of the IT department. Also there can be a dedicated cloud for specific campaigns or projects done for a limited period of time.

When it comes to dedicated hosting, people invariably talk about public cloud and they forget that many organizations would have a legacy application, or they might have very low latency requirements. Some organizations may have control objectives and also some deep security concerns or PCI DSS compliance.
