Hybrid cloud hosting solutions are susceptible to various risks just as with public and private-only infrastructures. Knowing and understanding these risks is the first step to making the right decision in choosing your cloud solution. Here are a few scenarios where a hybrid solution might not be the best choice after all.
Tight Operational Budgets
Organisations operating on a tight budget or looking at cutting their IT infrastructure costs will struggle to implement a proper hybrid cloud solution. Companies should take into account the substantial private cloud investment which translates into high upfront costs of dedicated servers to store and process the data workload.
Furthermore, a public cloud hosting solution might be an adequate and preferable alternative to a hybrid or private cloud solution, specifically when the organisation does not require sensitive data manipulation.
