Many companies work with cloud computing on virtual networks. Cloud-based virtual networks provide a cost-effective way to create high-availability, high-performance networks that don't rely on basic physical hardware.
Computing needs are managed by cloud computing through subscriptions or pay-per-use services that can match computing needs for businesses to their resources. A new type of cloud-based virtual network is called a hybrid cloud. Hybrid cloud solutions integrate internal, private, and public networks.
Hybrid clouds are typically formed in two ways: a company owns a private cloud and partners with a public cloud provider or partners with a company that already manages a private cloud platform.

A hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment where the company provides and manages some resources internally and provides others externally. For example, organizations can use public cloud services for specific needs, such as deploying public cloud applications that are not cost-effective or do not have the deployment capabilities to deploy on their private network.
Other organizations may have data centers that are running low on power and storage space, and they want to focus their end resources on critical applications.
The hybrid approach enables enterprises to take advantage of the scalability and cost-efficiency of public cloud computing environments without exposing internal applications and data to public vulnerabilities. This type of cloud computing is also known as hybrid IT.
