Hybrid networks involve the interconnection of compute/storage/network services across different services, infrastructures, providers and locations.
Examples of hybrid physical <> cloud networks include:
- GCP Interconnect between physical and cloud environments allowing for low cost and high speed exchange of data for BCP/DR purposes without excessive egress cost.
- AWS Direct Connect for low latency access between AWS public cloud application to a private cloud API endpoint.
- Azure ExpressRoute for guaranteed latency between private cloud web service and public cloud SQL service.
Hybrid networks are typically:
- Lower latency
- Guaranteed throughput
- Improved security
- SLA backed
- Cost efficient
