  • Hybrid Cloud vs Federated Cloud

    Is there any difference between Hybrid Cloud and Federated Cloud?

  • #2
    Hello,

    A federated cloud is an amalgam of several internal and external clouds which are fused to meet business’s needs. Similarly, a hybrid cloud is uses “the cloud” in such a way that an organization manages some of the cloud resources in-house, while other resources come from external sources.
    SO, ultimately, there is no difference between federated and hybrid clouds. Both terms discuss the joining of internal and outside clouds in order to accomplish one goal. They are just different names that describe the same process or existing practice to make it more universally understood by practitioners.

        Hybrid and federated clouds are not identical, they can be related. A federation cloud is the union of several smaller of cloud parts that perform a common action. It is composed of offerings from multiple vendors. A hybrid cloud is the combination of the private and public cloud.

          As cloud computing continues to gain in popularity, people are also looking for ways to make the cloud fit their own personal or organizational needs. As more changes occur, people are trying to decide what kind of cloud they should use, and one of the decisions they must make includes whether to use a hybrid cloud or a federated cloud, or whether to use public clouds. One question that more and more people ask is if there is a difference between federated clouds and hybrid clouds as they seem to be more and more interchangeable. A federated cloud is an amalgam of several internal and external clouds that are put together to meet an individual or a business’s needs. Just as in the political science definition of the federation, a federated cloud is the joining or the union of several smaller parts in order to perform together to accomplish one particular and specific action.

          Similarly, a hybrid cloud is using “the cloud” in a way that an organization or business manages some of the cloud resources in-house, while other resources come from external sources. An organization may use a public cloud service to archive older data, but they may use in-house cloud storage for customer information that is more up-to-date. Using a hybrid cloud system allows things that are perhaps less important to be stored in the less expensive public sector of cloud computing while maintaining the more sensitive information and data internally. By keeping the less sensitive material internal, it is more protected from outsiders hacking into the information.

          Ultimately, there is no difference between federated and hybrid clouds. Both terms discuss the joining of internal and outside clouds in order to accomplish one goal. Term federated cloud has been around longer, but as time goes by, the term hybrid cloud has been used more to describe the accomplishing the same task. The terms and hybrid and federated are just different names that describe the same process or existing practice to make it more universally understood by practitioners.


          Hope this helps!
          Regards.
