There are many good reasons why agencies choose to put their data, infrastructure or applications in a private cloud; resources are dedicated only to that agency or group of agencies, and security and content are fully controllable. In fact, the majority of federal cloud projects rely solely on private clouds. Yet there are many situations when the hybrid cloud model makes more sense, perspective. As its name suggests, a features from both private and public clouds, either on or off premise. There are many ways that agencies can leverage hybrid clouds, such as: Managing assets and dealing with demand spikes. An agency can rely on its internal resources until those resources are at full capacity, and at that point, automatically switch to a secure public cloud instance to gain capacity as needed. Once the demand has slowed, the workload would automatically revert back to private resources. Saving money. While sensitive data should always remain on private resources, agencies often have computing workloads that aren't sensitive. By keeping these on the public cloud, agencies can save money, since public cloud resources tend to cost less than private. Another way to save money with the hybrid model is by moving standard business applications like collaboration software and email to a secure area of a public cloud. Testing and development. Testing and developing new applications and services requires a great deal of capacity, but only for a short time. This is a situation ready-made for the hybrid cloud, because it gives developers access to the resources they need when they need it, yet doesn't require the agency to pay for the resources for longer than necessary. Disaster recovery/business continuity/ remote storage. If primary resources go down, having a secure area of a public cloud as a backup ensures that business can continue as usual. In addition, archived information that must be kept for compliance purposes but rarely accessed to a secure area of a public cloud. Security concerns shouldn't be an inhibiting factor when considering the hybrid cloud model. In addition to providers, agencies should know that cloud service providers today use dedicated network connections and enforce cloud encryption.different server or device in real time.
