FAQs about Hybrid Cloud Solutions

How is hybrid cloud priced?

The pricing of hybrid cloud services is contingent upon various factors. Workloads placed in a hybrid cloud environment may exhibit distinct loads on IT infrastructure, necessitate specific hardware or software configurations, and have diverse requirements in terms of security, data transfer speed, and storage capacity. Consequently, the cost of a hybrid cloud is determined individually in each specific case, considering the configuration of both hardware and virtual resources. Additionally, the pricing may include the cost of renting licensed software essential for building the virtualization environment and addressing other specific tasks.

How are cloud resources that are part of a hybrid solution managed?

Management of cloud resources in a hybrid solution varies based on the specific resources in use. In a general sense, a hybrid solution provides full access to dedicated resources and limited access to public cloud resources. For instance, renting a Dedicated Server grants access to the management console for that server, while utilizing a virtual server (IaaS) provides access to the public cloud administration console. This principle applies uniformly across all components of the hybrid infrastructure.

What is the difference between hybrid cloud and multicloud?

Multicloud involves utilizing multiple public clouds from different service providers to construct an IT infrastructure. This approach is warranted when specific functionalities are unavailable on a single platform, to mitigate dependence on a single provider, or to geographically distribute business applications and data across several regions, reducing end-user access times. In multicloud scenarios, different platforms are often employed for distinct tasks. On the other hand, hybrid cloud entails integrating one’s own IT infrastructure (which may be leased or hosted by a provider) with cloud infrastructure, encompassing both public and private clouds.

Is the hybrid cloud safe?

Your corporate security policies empower you to decide where your business applications run—whether on your physical IT infrastructure (owned or leased), public clouds, or private clouds. The hybrid cloud offers a secure and rapid connection between your main corporate network and cloud infrastructure, allowing you full control over access. We assure the hosting of hardware and data in two certified fault-tolerant data centers in Germany (Frankfurt am Main). Client infrastructures are safeguarded both physically and legally, ensuring third-party access is never granted. Our responsibility includes physical security, resource differentiation, and 24/7/365 security event monitoring. Colobridge staff have no access to leased or hosted equipment, private or public clouds, and operate under strict Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) to prevent confidential information leakage.

How long does it take to build a hybrid cloud?

The implementation timeline depends on the complexity of your IT infrastructure and is estimated on a case-by-case basis. We strive to expedite the process, ensuring you can start utilizing the hybrid infrastructure as soon as possible.

What are the steps of building a hybrid cloud?

In general, when ordering hybrid cloud, one takes the steps in the following order:

  • Audit of existing IT infrastructure
  • Identifying suitable solutions to meet client requirements
  • Developing a business case and obtaining client approval
  • Deployment of the hybrid environment
  • Testing.

Optionally, our technical experts can participate in data migration to the Colobridge platform and provide administration services for client hardware and software resources.

When does a business need hybrid infrastructure?

We recommend adopting hybrid infrastructure in the following scenarios:

  • Future plans to extensively use cloud technologies while retaining local computing capacities
  • Current local IT infrastructure resources are insufficient without plans for scaling
  • Occasional spikes in business loads due to increased service and application requests
  • Need for a test environment to swiftly launch new products on the market
  • Business expansion to geographically remote regions to prevent delays in services
  • Interest in building a hybrid infrastructure for backup and rapid recovery in case of failure.

What platforms will we build hybrid cloud on?

Platform selection is tailored to project requirements. Virtualization environments leverage platforms such as Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere, and Proxmox VE. For dedicated server rentals or colocating equipment in our data center, any preferred platform can be chosen. Contact our experts to explore platform options.
