Federal Hybrid Cloud Solution
Hybrid cloud implementations offer flexibility, customization, and the ability to manage the balance between cloud security and ease of use of cloud architecture.
Federal agencies can use existing on-premises solutions for mission-critical workloads, while moving non-critical items to a public cloud.
- Speed up IT development and move to market faster with enhanced synergy and sandboxes.
- Use existing IT resources, while updating operations in phases, lowering risks and building an agency-specific lessons-learned library.
- Adjust solutions, choosing from on-premises, public or private cloud, allowing for the best available technologies for each application and agency-specific use.
- Enjoy the flexibility and agility of public cloud solutions, while securing and owning data and applications.
- Reduce IT expenses by dropping many in-house operations, freeing IT departments to focus on innovation.
- Increase asset use by purchasing only what you need and boosting current capital expenditures.
- Follow federal-and agency-specific regulations and policies.
- Lower cost and improve disaster recovery processes.
|Model||Cloud Infrastructure Set-up||Managed by||Location|
|Private cloud||Used by a single organization comprising multiple consumers (e.g., business units)||Owned, managed, and operated by the organization||On or off premises|
|Community cloud||Used by a specific community of consumers from organizations that have shared concerns (e.g., mission, security requirements, policy, and compliance reviews)||Owned, managed, and operated by one or more of the organizations in the community, a third party, or some combination of them||On or off premises|
|Public cloud||Used by the general public||Owned, managed, and operated by a business, academic, or government organization, or some combination of them||On the cloud provider's premises|
|Hybrid Cloud||The cloud infrastructure combines two or more distinct cloud infrastructures (private, community, or public) that remain unique entities, but are bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application portability|
