In just a few years, public cloud service providers like Google Cloud Platform (GCP) have made big strides packaging products and solutions enabling customers to store, access, and move data into the cloud. But increasingly, we know customers are cautious when it comes to relying on one environment alone – public cloud or on-premises data centers.

Whether it be for reasons of disaster recovery planning or the need for flexible IT architecture, hybrid environments offer several advantages. It leaves the door open for opportunity or room for you to choose your own adventure. The term “hybrid cloud” varies amongst organizations – so for the purpose of this article, we are using Google’s definition:

“a setup of common or interconnected workloads deployed across multiple computing environments, one based in the public cloud, and at least one being private (usually an existing, on-premises data center).”

And since “hybrid” can often be confused with “multicloud”, we will reference it here as an environment that uses multiple public clouds in combination with on-premises or private data centers.

The recent hype over hybrid cloud

Hybrid cloud emerged as a hot topic at this year’s Google Next. This was evident in announcements from Google like Anthos (formerly Cloud Services Platform) – a solution enabling customers to build and manage modern hybrid applications across environments. Solutions throughout the pavilion also reinforced this theme with some creative, industry-specific demos showcasing its application.

Teradici Cloud Access Software played a key part in the media and entertainment section demonstrating secure remote access that studios can use to work in the cloud. The software is designed to support real-time editing of complex projects, graphics, and even use of standard office applications stored in the cloud or data center. The Google Cloud team used it to support an augmented reality demo produced with Zync Render by GCP.

The service that gives you control over your deployments

Teradici debuted extended functionality in Cloud Access Manager to support provisioning and management of virtual machines on GCP. Cloud Access Manager is a service built into Cloud Access Software that enables customers to automate and manage virtual workstation deployments – on GCP, other public clouds, on-premises, or private data centers to any endpoint device.

Customers can view, automate, and manage multiple deployments, create new virtual workstations in seconds, and switch them on and off to control cloud consumption costs.
