Chapter 6. Creating Hybrid Services

In this chapter we will cover services that provide the ability for us to create a hybrid solution. A hybrid solution is based on applications that connect to data and services across a mix of data centers that can either be in the cloud or on-premises. This provides you with the ability to move your applications to the cloud in your own timeframe and in a manner that best fits the business situation. It also allows systems that are subject to regulations to keep part of the application (that is, the data tier) on-premises while still taking advantage of what the cloud provides for other tiers of the application. To do this, you need a solution that can adapt to how you design and develop your application.
