During the discovery phase for a particular client, our engineers sometimes determine that not every application and/or server can be successfully virtualized. In other cases a client needs a particular router, security device, or other appliance to sit next to and communicate with their newly virtualized infrastructure. Still other clients have a desire to locate their PBX and telecommunications infrastructure within the secure confines of a data center. When situations like these arise, Hybrid Hosting becomes a necessity.
The term Hybrid Hosting refers to a Cloud Provider's ability to host physical devices for a client and to integrate them into the virtual network built within the Cloud.
Since its inception, C3 has been providing Hybrid Hosting for several key clients. Even those clients that do not require Hybrid Hosting today often comment that it is comforting to know that we can accomodate them should the need arise.
