Modern businesses need to act in real time and to do so require such a fast pace of innovation that it is costly and difficult to maintain with legacy data platforms that are not built for real time and are not scalable and have evolved to cover specific needs or that are legacy in many cases. In this context, the hybrid cloud is positioned as an ideal alternative due to the multiple economic, operational and functional benefits it brings. It’s no surprise, therefore, that 96% of companies are actively pursuing a hybrid strategy, according to data from 451 Research. And it is that the hybrid cloud allows scaling resources efficiently and agilely, as well as running any analysis in any public or private cloud.
The growth in cloud offerings in recent years has increased the demand for greater agility, speed and cost efficiency. According to Mordor Intelligence, the hybrid cloud market was valued at $52.16 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $145 billion by 2026. “As the world of I0T accelerates and edge technologies become more prevalent, the Hybrid cloud will be a necessity to integrate more legacy environments with the most modern analytical applications”, says Pablo Boixeda, Solutions Engineering Senior Manager Iberia and Italy at Cloudera.
The solution for hosting the most sensitive data
In a hybrid environment, public and private cloud can work together with ease of use, elasticity, and self-service that enables organizations to optimize their own data, exploit new resources, and apply the latest innovations. “It is important to keep in mind that adopting a hybrid strategy is only possible when three key elements are aligned: support throughout the data lifecycle, security and governance at the enterprise level, and having an open platform” , says Susana López Huertas, Cloudera Senior Account Executive.

Due to the need for companies to manage ever-increasing volumes of data, Cloudera launched in 2019 the industry’s first hybrid enterprise data cloud, Cloudera Data Platform (CDP). It is a platform for the use of data that allows proper information management and better business results, integrates several technologies and tools to create and exploit Data Lakes, Data Warehousing, Machine Learning and can perform data ingestion, transformation and data flow analytics. In addition, it provides governance, security, and lineage capabilities that minimize risk. “Years ago it became clear that not everything can be hosted in a public cloud for many reasons, including security. The flexibility and performance guaranteed by the hybrid cloud have made it the most suitable option for sensitive data”, says José Luis Martínez, Senior Enterprise Account Manager at Cloudera.
The hybrid generates competitive advantages
More and more companies are realizing that to generate higher revenues and mitigate risks they need to base their strategies on modern data platforms that include cloud-native capabilities. A recent Cloudera global study on enterprise data maturity found that 89% of IT decision makers agree that organizations that implement a hybrid architecture as part of their data strategy will gain an advantage. competitive. In addition, having an open and hybrid platform is essential to minimize risks and have an exit strategy. In short, taking the step towards the hybrid cloud can make what seems impossible today a reality in the very near future.
