Hybrid cloud storage is an approach to managing storage that uses both local and off-site resources.
Hybrid cloud storage is often used to supplement internal storage with public cloud storage. Policy engines keep frequently used data on-site while simultaneously moving inactive data to the cloud in a transparent manner.
Ideally, a hybrid cloud implementation behaves as if it is homogeneous storage. Hybrid cloud storage is most often implemented by using proprietary commercial storage software, by using a cloud storage appliance that serves as a gateway between on-premise and public cloud storage or by using an application program interface (API) to access the cloud storage.
A cloud orchestrator, also called a cloud service orchestration platform, is software for managing interconnections and interactions among cloud-based and on-premises business units.
The goal of cloud orchestration is to automate the configuration, coordination and management of software and software interactions in a distributed computing environment so that intercomponent and interapplication links are correctly established and maintained. Continue reading
