Companies are increasingly looking towards hybrid cloud deployments to address and resolve a variety of issues in their current solutions. They may be looking to distribute load between different geographic regions, or provide better data recovery possibilities between different sites to keep their applications running within a variety of locations. HA can be solved locally, but effective load distribution and DR are more problematic. Hybrid clouds, including the combination of different cloud environments and on-premise deployments pose some significant challenges for your database environment. Data needs to be replicated effectively, applications need to be routed to the right databases, and workloads distributed and managed effectively. Behind the scenes, you need to consider how DR will work, how to cope with failures, managing network connectivity, and dealing with disparate systems, restrictions and environments. As the world moves on, these processes will get more complex as different databases are employed for different applications, and links and replication between these different systems becomes the requirement, without ever losing that need for effective HA and DR solutions, while minimizing downtime and enabling effective expansion and administration.
