Hybrid cloud hosting is a hosting solution in which a business will have access to both a dedicated server and a virtual cloud server. There are a number of benefits of opting for hybrid hosting, especially for businesses that experience unexpected spikes in customer traffic:
Hybrid hosting can ensure maximum IT systems performance. An overloaded dedicated server will translate to slow data processing, and if the business involves commerce of any sort, this slowdown can lead to a loss of customers. Hybrid hosting offers redundancy to ensure that the dedicated servers are less likely to be overloaded since the unexpected spikes can be handled by the cloud server.
Hybrid hosting is cost efficient. Dedicated servers can be expensive to maintain. Using a cloud-based solution in conjunction a dedicated server to keep traffic at an optimal minimum can translate to less maintenance and fewer management costs.
