Cloud platforms became very popular in the last few years and are meanwhile an integral element in many companies. More and more enterprises are shifting to the hybrid-/ multi-cloud architecture approach in order to benefit from the flexibility and security that this modern architecture brings. At the same time, the number of data protection and security regulations are increasing and getting stricter. The Logical Data Warehouse aids with the integration part which is a key component of any hybrid- and multi-cloud strategy as it ensures that the architecture works quickly and reliably. Apart from enabling a fully integrated data landscape, the LDW strengthens the transparency, governance, and security aspects for a compliant system.
SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS OF A HYBRID-/MULTI-CLOUD ARCHITECTURE
Security and Compliance
A hybrid-/ multi-cloud architecture gives you the flexibility to handle the data based on their sensitivity: highly regulated or sensitive ones due to GDPR, HIPAA, etc. can be deployed in the private cloud or on-premises while still less-sensitive can be moved to the public cloud. This way you can also reduce vendor risk as you don’t put all your eggs into one basket.
Optimized Deployment and Cost Structure
With a hybrid-/ multi-cloud approach, you can optimize the workload deployment of your overall architecture and your overall infrastructure budget. It also gives you the flexibility to adjust the deployment according to changing workloads or new opportunities. For instance, you could maintain workloads with known capacity and performance requirements on private cloud or on-premises and migrate more variable workloads and applications to the public cloud.
A hybrid-/ multi-cloud approach lets you easily deal with fluctuating and unpredictable workloads. The public cloud infrastructure can be used to scale up quickly, inexpensively, and even automatically and scale back down when the surge subsides. The rest of the workload isn’t affected and can run smoothly as usual.
