The cloud is a place where data can be stored and accessed over the Internet. More specifically, the term “hybrid cloud” refers to a combination of both private and public cloud services in one package.
It’s used by organizations that want to be as efficient as possible by making use of public cloud services for non-sensitive operations while using the private cloud only when needed.
We can think of the hybrid cloud as public and private transportation services. We usually take the bus (public cloud) when we still have time to spare and because it’s cheap. But if we’re in a rush or have sensitive items that need to be transported soon, we often take a cab (private cloud).
