March 25th, 2016 Posted by Case Studies, Uncategorized No Comment yet

Hi ! For your lesson today, download UnitedLayer’s Guide to Hybrid Hosting by answering a few questions so that we can understand your needs better.

What is Hybrid Hosting?

Hybrid hosting uses the optimal infrastructure for each application and combines them in a single unified environment. This comprehensive IT infrastructure can talk as “one”.

How to know if a hybrid hosting solution is right for you.

Each business’ IT scenario is different, and therefore, so is the hosting solution.  Hybrid hosting allows you to tailor-make a solution based on your specific needs. Hybrid solutions can cover a wide variety of scenarios including:

  • Custom hardware: You have a server or a piece of hardware that can’t be put in the cloud
  • Disaster recovery needs: You need a solid disaster recovery solution where you can keep your production environment on-site while keeping a recovery environment in a private cloud. If disaster strikes, the business is protected.
  • Fixed resources for regular workloads with the ability to deal with unexpected spikes in traffic: A large portion of the your infrastructure could be on a long-term private cloud, but you could have periods where you need to scale up fast, leveraging a highly secured enterprise public cloud.

How to find the right hybrid hosting partner for you

Creating a true hybrid cloud requires expertise in networking, storage and compute, security, virtualization, operating systems, application levels and software solutions, and also requires 24/7 support. The ability to bring all of this together is what makes UnitedLayer stand out.
