Hybrid Cloud Considerations for Big Data and Analytics

Hybrid Cloud Considerations for Big Data and Analytics

Quite often, the need for data security and privacy makes organizations hesitant about migrating data to the public cloud. Fortunately, the business model for cloud services is evolving to enable more businesses to deploy a secure and cost-effective hybrid cloud, particularly in the areas of big data and analytics solutions.

A hybrid cloud is a combination of on-premises and local cloud resources integrated with one or more dedicated cloud(s) and one or more public cloud(s), allowing for increased scalability and computational power for big data and analytics capabilities.

This whitepaper summarizes what hybrid cloud is, explains why it is important in the context of big data and analytics, and discusses implementation considerations.
