Learn Using Cloud-Native Services to Build your Hybrid Cloud

A Hybrid cloud is an IT infrastructure that connects at least one public cloud and at least one private cloud and provides orchestration, management and application portability between them to create a single, flexible, optimal cloud environment for running a company’s computing workloads.
Let’s understand the steps to consider when building out your hybrid cloud platform:
The data centre or cloud provider. What you’re doing is extending your existing platform into a cloud model. One of the first things that your organization must do is conduct a Business Impact Analysis as well as a Cloud Readiness Assessment. 
Select your hardware. It’s time to look at a variety of hardware options like Server, storage, network, and compute platforms that have come a long way. New converged platforms are the primary reason that the cloud is getting a lot smaller. 
Creating a virtual platform. If you’re moving to the cloud, you’ll need to look at logical and virtual controls. This starts at the hypervisor and can move into managing Big Data on a Hadoop cluster.
Integrating replication and distribution mechanisms. A big part of a hybrid cloud is the ability to replicate and distribute data. First of all, it’s important to know how data is being moved, backed up, and how it’s being optimized. Data replication can be a tedious process if not done properly. 
Incorporating automation and orchestration. Resources can be provisioned and de-provisioned based on demand, management can be a lot more proactive, and your ability to control various components of your hybrid infrastructure can all fall under one management layer. 
Balancing your workloads. Load-balancing technologies allow you to port users, data points, and even applications to appropriate data centre resources. For example, your load-balancing platform can be intelligent enough to point a user closer to a data point while controlling resources and application access.
Management and control. One of the most important pieces to your hybrid cloud platform will revolve around monitoring, management, and control. Staying proactive and catching challenges before they become real issues is a big piece of running an efficient cloud environment.
