Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure


An important consideration when dealing with a hybrid cloud infrastructure is that while the in-house IT department will be seen as a provider of cloud services to the corporate consumer of the hybrid cloud solution, it is also true that the IT organization itself is a consumer of cloud services. That means that there are multiple levels of consumers. The corporate consumer might be considered a second-level consumer of the public cloud services, while the IT organization might be considered a first-level consumer of the service. This has important implications when thinking about the architecture of the solution.
