By: Vikas Grover, Ishu Verma, Praveen Rajagopalan

Overview of this book

Hybrid cloud technology can be leveraged by organizations aiming to build next-gen applications while safeguarding prior technological investments. This book will help you explore different hybrid cloud architectural patterns, whether designing new projects or migrating legacy applications to the cloud. You'll learn about the key building blocks of hybrid cloud enabling you to deploy, manage, and secure applications and data while porting the workloads between environments without rebuilding. Further, you’ll explore Kubernetes, GitOps, and Layer 3/7 services to reduce operational complexity. You'll also learn about nuances of security and compliance in hybrid cloud followed by the economics of hybrid cloud. You’ll gain a deep understanding of the concepts with use cases from telecom 5G and industrial manufacturing, giving you a glimpse into real industry problems resolved by hybrid cloud, and unlocking millions of dollars of opportunities for enterprises. By the end of this book, you'll be well-equipped to design and develop efficient hybrid cloud strategies, lead conversations with senior IT and business executives, and succeed in hybrid cloud implementation or transformation opportunities.

An organization's desire to optimize its IT infrastructure is the key driver behind the adoption of hybrid cloud and the rapid growth of the cloud computing industry. Hybrid cloud combines the benefits of both public and private clouds, giving organizations the flexibility to choose the right environment for their specific needs.

The main reasons for hybrid cloud adoption include flexibility, scalability, and security. With hybrid cloud, organizations can easily move workloads between public and private clouds, allowing them to scale resources up or down as needed. Additionally, hybrid cloud provides improved security by allowing organizations to keep sensitive data in a private cloud while still taking advantage of the cost savings and scalability of the public cloud.

Analysts have predicted that the hybrid cloud market will continue to grow, with Kubernetes playing a significant role in its success. Reports have stated that Kubernetes will become the de facto standard for managing cloud-native applications and that the hybrid cloud market will benefit greatly from its adoption. The ability to seamlessly manage and orchestrate workloads across multiple cloud environments using Kubernetes is a key driver of the growing adoption of hybrid cloud.

Hybrid Cloud Architectural Patterns provides a comprehensive guide for designing and implementing hybrid cloud solutions. The authors explore the key concepts, best practices, and real-world examples of using hybrid cloud, focusing on using Kubernetes to manage and orchestrate workloads.
