Hybrid Cloud

Definition - What does Hybrid Cloud mean?

A hybrid cloud is a cloud computing service model that provides cloud computing solutions by combining different cloud service models.

Hybrid cloud service integrates in-house IT infrastructure with other products and services to meet a business's specific and unique needs.

Techopedia explains Hybrid Cloud

Although a hybrid cloud may combine several different service architectures, it is primarily considered the provision of offsite cloud resources to enhance, upgrade or extend the existing and onsite IT resources. For example, an organization might add public cloud storage to store backup data and files.

However, according to some industry pundits, the cohesion of different cloud solutions to form a single solution is also considered as hybrid cloud model. This might include something like renting a virtual server from one public provider and integrating it with public cloud storage from another.
