A hybrid cloud is a concept of cloud computing. Such a cloud consists of private clouds and public clouds. In the hybrid cloud model, the traditional data center that forms the private cloud is combined with the scalable cloud services of a public cloud. This means a multi-cloud strategy.
The cloud customer can use its own resources and application programs and call up computing power or other resources from the cloud provider at any time during peak demand without having to upgrade its own infrastructure.
The hybrid cloud combines the advantages of the private cloud with its own applications with the flexibility of the cloud services of a public cloud. The customer can relieve the load on his resources if necessary and, by coordinating with the cloud service provider, he can make better use of the latter's resources, which also has an impact on the energy balance.
