Hybrid Cloud PLM is most commonly a combination of On-premise and Cloud infrastructures. Now you can enjoy the major benefits of each of these environments without causing detriment to integrity or flexibility.
You can use the Public Cloud for ease of collaboration, the Private Cloud for tighter software integration and On-Premise for mission critical data and processes. Best of all, the extent to which you use any of these is entirely up to you.
Hybrid Cloud can be one of the most complex ways to implement a Cloud infrastructure to your organisation. But with the right support in doing so, it can also be one of the most beneficial.
So, let’s take a look at the top five advantages of a Hybrid Cloud environment:
Building on-premises architecture takes a lot of time and money.
With Cloud, you just have to click a few buttons; pay a few bills; create a few accounts. And often Cloud services are based on intuitive, browser-based interfaces, enabling staff to get started quickly.
Need more space? Order it.
You’ll have it within seconds. Paying for more than you’re using? Downgrade your account. Rather than having fixed IT costs based on the number of physical servers running in your server room, Cloud solutions are constantly responsive to the needs of your business.
You can use Hybrid Cloud however you need to.
Use on-premise IT for mission-critical software where latency is not an option. But allow file access from a Private Cloud for easier collaboration. Combine different Cloud providers for different use-cases. You can even use the Public Cloud for sharing with clients on a platform they understand. Each option is limited. But the combinations are practically unlimited.
Cybersecurity is always a balance between safety and convenience.
Hybrid Cloud gives you the greatest flexibility to achieve that careful equilibrium.
Keep the most sensitive data on-site. Tier less sensitive data between Private Cloud and public for maximum convenience. And many Cloud services can provide standards-compliant backup for Disaster Recovery. We often use Amazon’s Gov Cloud for hosting sensitive information governed by US Government Regulations (ITAR).

The more you can outsource to the Cloud, the less you have to pay up-front.
Those physical costs are handed to the Cloud provider instead, who spreads it amongst its clients. You also save on energy bills, maintenance, and upgrade costs.
64% of companies are ramping up IT budgets to upgrade their infrastructure. Our Hybrid Cloud includes two major upgrades per year. And only the important ones so that we reduce disruption.
Gartner’s latest report provides more information on, “How to Realize cost Savings After Migrating to the Cloud”.
Hybrid Cloud can give you access to the kind of best-in-class, enterprise level applications and computing typically reserved for massive organisations. And it can be provided to you a fraction of the cost with no compromise on features, quality or customisation.
The pay-per-use, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model enabled by the Hybrid Cloud, is increasing enterprise software spend by 8.3% this year. While server sales are predicted to fall 1-3% per year for the next five years. It’s safe to say that big business is turning to Cloud.
