A hybrid cloud is a combination of two (or more) clouds. It is not a separate entity; rather, it is a term given to multiple clouds working in harmony. Generally it is used when customers require additional resources or services.
Hybrid cloud models open up a whole raft of new virtualisation possibilities. Often, hybrid cloud for storage and backup is the first step on a customer’s journey to a broader cloud deployment. Whatever you are looking to achieve with a hosting solution, hybrid offers many new options and deployment models.
