At a basic level, a hybrid cloud architecture combines a mix of public and private cloud and on-premises infrastructure, with some level of communication and orchestration between these elements.
A hybrid cloud is also considered a multi-cloud if it contains clouds from multiple cloud providers, such as Microsoft Azure's public cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM Cloud, or an internal or external private cloud such as those provided by BPSOLUTIONS. Whether it's hybrid, multicloud or both, organizations have put together their specific 'Cloud Mix' in a way that aligns with the concrete priorities, demands and wishes of the moment and they don't want to be forced to change it.

How can an organization pursue a hybrid cloud strategy - and maintain their freedom of choice - without increasing the complexity and inflexibility of their IT infrastructure? It is obviously important to implement an Open, Secure Hybrid Cloud strategy that unites the cloud environments and bridges the gap to the ideal 'Cloud Mix' of tomorrow.
It is an approach aimed at unifying the user experience while maximizing both the benefits of private cloud and public cloud and removing complexity and risk. After all, users want a modern cloud experience with carefree and scalable speed and flexibility, while the reality of the internal (on premises) private data center offers security and where the gravity of data is present, which serves as a source for applications and services and easily and quickly accessible.
In addition, in recent years there has been a clear drive to move to Public Cloud, while this has only resulted in a transfer of 30-40% of the applications and data. Why? Because these were the easily movable data and applications, a large part that is left behind is difficult to move to the public cloud or for which the advantages are limited or the disadvantages too great.
The need to accelerate digital transformation so that more business can be generated, new business models developed and smarter and better working is therefore central. Based on these developments and the desire to offer a unified cloud user experience, knowing that handling traditional (vertical) cloud silos does not provide the right integration and creates complexity, where security is under pressure, BPSOLUTIONS has developed a secure, open hybrid cloud platform developed.
Virtual Machines and Containers can be moved freely from Private to Public cloud. Windows and Linux environment run where they come into their own, even legacy Unix and AS400. All Flash Low Latency storage with maximum data reduction in the private cloud environment, with the same functionality in the public cloud. Due to the direct link between our enterprise Private Cloud platform and various Public Cloud platforms such as Azure, AWS and IBM Cloud, organizations are able to build once, deploy everywhere and integrate everything and secure uniformly. End-to-end security from access, user management, roll based access (RBAC) but also end-to-end encryption capabilities, native immutable backups and uniform cloud data protection regardless of where data and applications are placed.
BPSOLUTIONS' Hybrid Cloud approach is also distinguished by the way AI capabilities - the key to prediction and automation - are deeply woven into the fabric, as is security. The Hybrid Cloud advantage of BPSOLUTIONS is rounded off by deep service capabilities in critical areas such as digital transformation, application modernization and industry-specific intelligent workflows. Simply put, the ability to collaborate to realize the potential value of hybrid cloud and make data work for the organization.
