Hybrid Cloud represents the cloud model which orchestrates the mix of on premise Cloud, Private Cloud and Third party Public Cloud models to scale, meet and widen the data deployment options.

What applications should I move to the cloud?
Which type of cloud is best suited for my requirements – Public? Private? Hybrid?
Which provider can offer me the most flexibility and support?”
