Hybrid-cloud solutions As Essential Cloud Deployment for Businesses in New Zealand

Hybrid cloud is increasingly becoming the preferred cloud deployment model for businesses worldwide. A hybrid cloud combines services from a private cloud and a public cloud to form a unified computing environment. Because of its flexibility and numerous data deployment options, many businesses prefer hybrid cloud computing.

Adopting a hybrid cloud strategy would provide businesses with tremendous flexibility while also allowing them to maximise their technology investments. Companies can control costs, increase security, and improve performance by combining on- and off-premises cloud services.

To address this, a leading tech giant and ICT developer is launching hybrid cloud solutions in New Zealand through a partnership with a service company. The hybrid cloud provider is set to make further progress in its international growth plans, launching its hybrid cloud solutions in New Zealand from mid-July 2021.

Along with the recently announced agreement with a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) provider to build an SD-WAN network node in Auckland, the agreement with the company will underpin the company’s plans to develop a globally connected hybrid cloud and SD-WAN solutions.

For several reasons, hybrid cloud is perceived as the most essential cloud deployment for businesses in the twenty-first century. AI/ML and stream processing use cases are showcasing the importance of these technologies in how businesses use them on a daily basis, with year-over-year growth ranging from 50 to 100 %.

Research shows that 35% of respondents in a March 2021 survey of 150 global business and IT professionals picked hybrid as their dominant choice, followed by private cloud at 24%, public cloud at 16%, and multi-cloud at 9%. The report also revealed a jump in organisations moving advanced workloads to the cloud — increasing by 25% year-over-year between 2020 and 2021. The statistic suggests that organisations are becoming more confident about moving their important workloads to the cloud.

Implementing a hybrid cloud solution in a business would provide the following benefits to the organisation:

  • Brokerage capabilities enable a relevant set of infrastructure and platform services to be delivered via a hybrid cloud delivery model, removing the challenges associated with shadow IT.
  • Unified and granular visibility into resource consumption show who, what, where, and for how long. This improves workload analysis, placement, and – ultimately – cost optimization by addressing governance, risk, and compliance.
  • Computing resources and platform capabilities can be obtained as a service, which means they can be scaled to fit business needs on-demand.
  • Service characteristics that are consistent across public and private cloud infrastructures deliver a consistent experience and the benefits of a managed service with the level of control a business requires.

Establishing an on-premises or private cloud to bridge the gap between traditional IT delivery and a public cloud is a critical component of the hybrid cloud solution for workloads that can benefit from a cloud delivery model, but it must remain on-premises.

The hybrid cloud solution represents a significant shift in infrastructure strategy — but it doesn’t have to disrupt current systems, which means this approach can be a positive initial step as part of a digital transformation or can be deployed as a solution to a discrete business requirement.

In contrast, a hybrid cloud solution can add value to the business by enabling digital transformation, delivering the best of public cloud and on-premises infrastructure services, and transcending the corporate boundary.

The hybrid cloud is liberating businesses from the constraints of proprietary hardware and software stacks. It is supporting an environment in which business users can gain immediate access to the resources they require. Furthermore, it is assisting in removing the “shadow” from shadow IT, which is why it is vital that all company around the globe should start implementing the use of hybrid cloud solutions as it brings many advantages to the organisation.
