What does Hybrid Cloud mean?

In the context of technology, hybrid refers to one of three types of cloud data storage. A hybrid server utilizes a private cloud server to store data but also uses public services for functions such as data protection.

What does a hybrid cloud system entail?

Like the term sounds, a hybrid cloud server is a combination of both public and private services. Many consider this option to be the most flexible, while data and applications used within the system are able to interact easily with one another. An example of a hybrid cloud system is storing highly sensitive data, such as financials, on a private server, but using a public server to store lower-security data.
