Five business benefits of Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid Cloud services aren’t just for companies with big budgets. A reputable, reasonable and secure solution will enable your business to adapt and thrive no matter what the world throws at it!

We explore just a few of the benefits of moving to a Hybrid Cloud solution.

Supporting your remote workforce

Desktop virtualization is the main advantage given the rise and now, in many cases permanence of the remote worker. With Hybrid Cloud, teams get on-demand access to data. There’s no location dependency so its hugely flexible.

Completely tailored to each individual business, you have the ability to keep sensitive core data on either a private cloud or an on-premise server. Any key applications and services can then be made public to employees and accessible from any location with a simple login.

Having this sort of infrastructure removes technology barriers and results in huge productivity gains. Your teams will have the confidence to carry out their roles in the same way no matter where they are based.

Business continuity

Should your business become compromised by a failure or overnight disaster you’ll want to ensure it can continue with the least amount of downtime.

Hybrid Cloud forms the foundation of any good business continuity plan. By replicating business-critical data to the Cloud you have the peace of mind that should the worst happen, your teams can carry on supporting your customers. The Cloud will easily scale to cope with demand unlike on-premise servers.

If you recently struggled to get your teams up and running from home during the pandemic or maybe you had to shut temporarily, then this is a prime example of how Hybrid Cloud could alleviate the problem.


Hybrid cloud is an extremely cost-effective option for any business, allowing them to scale up and down as demand spikes. It’s the ideal platform for long term growth also as it can be set up and continually adapted quickly and easily.

Business critical data remains private and less sensitive data is easily offloaded to the public cloud.

Hybrid Cloud options will help to avoid large capital expenditures to expand infrastructure. You only pay for the resources you need, as and when you need them.

Scalability & agilty

As your business grows the demand for IT services will too, with Hybrid Cloud you can scale workloads to suit and have far better control over your data. You can use Cloud automation so that changes in demand will alter your settings automatically to ensure efficiency and optimized performance.

This type of agility goes hand in hand with innovation and being able to keep your business ahead of the curve. Without the limits of on-premise infrastructure you can increase workloads, test and quickly get your products to market.


A good hybrid cloud solution comes with security at the forefront, if you choose a reputable supplier you will have total peace of mind in the safety of your data.

This is down to the high levels of encryption and 24/7 security monitoring at datacentre level. Centralised management means security measures such as access control, endpoint security and automation are simple to put in place for effective risk management.
