Hybrid Cloud Storage: A Tiered Approach

With hybrid cloud storage, data is primarily located in the private part of the cloud. If an application is also in a private cloud, the data warehouse can store files and data for that application. This should be the most efficient storage system in your overall hybrid cloud assistance strategy.

Local and cloud storage costs are now very cheap because using secondary resources, even tertiary average, to store data as an active backup system is widely used for primary storage, or even a recent copy of primary storage is the best approach. 

The secondary storage system is the public cloud in a hybrid cloud storage strategy. Data is moved or replicated to a public cloud storage system. In other cases, companies can move legacy data to the public cloud to free up space in the main repository. 

If a secondary storage system is used to store data that has been moved from primary storage, you should design your application to search for data on both storage systems.

Triple redundancy is always a good idea as archived storage is optional. Well, archived storage systems are cheap and poorly performing systems for long-term storage of data that are no longer required by core business processes, or for archiving other filing systems. 

Using a hybrid cloud offers companies several advantages because two or even three separate storage systems come with different prices and levels of performance.
