Cloud storage gains pace with more and more businesses considering moving from the safety of a private cloud for the sake of higher cost efficiency of a public cloud. A private cloud, also known as servers in your basement, ensures flexibility, but what is more important – security, since it is maintained on a private network with hardware and software dedicated exclusively to one organization. On the other hand, a public cloud ensures greater scalability, cost efficiency, and reliability. That’s where the hybrid cloud kicks in. It combines the best of two worlds, delivering better fault tolerance, scalability, and security.
