Guiding the Enterprise (part 5) 2011 (†276)"Understanding the key terms surrounding the hybrid cloud model" (part 5). Guiding the enterprise into a hybrid cloud model (TechTarget, 31 May 2011).
- cloud bursting (5. "Understanding the key terms . . ." ): Cloud bursting is an application deployment model in which an application runs in a private cloud or data center and bursts into a public cloud when the demand for computing capacity spikes. The advantage of such a hybrid cloud deployment is that an organization only pays for extra compute resources when they are needed. ¶Experts recommend cloud bursting for high performance, non-critical applications that handle non-sensitive information.
