Hybrid Cloud
The best of two worlds

A full 87% of companies use a hybrid cloud and thus benefit from the advantages of the private and public cloud. The hybrid cloud solutions from luckycloud offer maximum flexibility and conserve resources. Add public cloud storage in our German data centers to your local NAS storage and use it, for example, for cost-effective backups, applications or collaborative work. This way, employees can securely access NAS data from different devices, regardless of location - for more cost efficiency, agility and security.

Advantages of the Hybrid Cloud with luckycloud

When you synchronize your NAS data with the online storage and create backups, you reliably protect yourself against data loss. Our hybrid cloud solutions are characterized by their above-average security. True end-to-end encryption (zero knowledge principle - only you have access to the key) is a matter of course for us.

The servers of luckycloud are located in certified data centers on German soil and not abroad as with some other providers. Our data centers reliably protect against cyber attacks and failures. In addition, our cloud is based on open source software - so it is always possible to see how secure the code is. This allows it to be continuously optimized.

A hybrid cloud like the one from luckycloud enables true work and share. This makes joint, time-sovereign and location-independent work on documents in the team a daily practice. Changes are traceable with version histories.

In the office, all employees are quickly and securely connected to the NAS server. Those who want to access the NAS data from home or on the road often need a VPN tunnel. However, with many users and large amounts of data, the VPN connection is quickly overloaded.

With our hybrid cloud solutions, you don`t need a VPN because you access the data directly in the secure public cloud. This means that you do not access the data of the NAS server via the Internet, but via the cloud with end-to-end encryption. This allows you to hermetically seal off the network and protect it from attacks. The cloud communicates only with the HTTPS protocol, which is already used for surfing the Internet. This means that no further opening of the firewall is necessary.

The hybrid cloud is flexible and scalable. You can access the stored data via the cloud or the local network, regardless of time and location. Thanks to individual sync options, certain or all folders and data can be synchronized in real time on all end devices. Capacities such as storage space and services can be expanded and reduced again almost indefinitely at any time.

With the hybrid cloud, you save time and money. Cost advantages are offered above all by object storage as a public cloud, such as the S3 protocols for secure disaster recovery backup. Intelligent data reduction and fast data transfer also save resources. The collaborative public cloud ensures efficient collaboration within the company. Long loading times due to slow VPN tunnels and remote desktop crashes are a thing of the past.

What is a Hybrid Cloud?

A hybrid cloud is a solution that combines a private cloud (server on premises) and a public cloud (data center) - in other words, a hybrid of the two main cloud models.

Private Cloud

  • Store data locally on company-owned servers
  • Ensure high security
  • Have full control over the data and processes

Public Cloud

  • Store data externally in data center
  • Access it flexibly from any device and location
  • Save resources, performance and money

The Private Cloud is a local storage location in the company for internal access. As a rule, this is a compact device such as the NAS server in the office. Added to this in the hybrid cloud is the Public Cloud - an environment that provides computing power and storage online via an external data center.

Public Cloud does not mean,
that the data can be retrieved by any person.

The term "public" in this context does not mean that unauthorized persons can access the data. On the contrary: Cloud services are usually even more secure than physical devices, as the data centers are not susceptible to faults and are better protected against effects such as fire and moisture. Here, too, there are access rights and secure access procedures.

How works a hybrid cloud?

In the hybrid cloud, two worlds flexibly come into contact with each other: The private cloud in a local data storage in the in-house network (mostly compact and modern NAS devices) and the public cloud on virtual servers in data centers. The latter is provided by a cloud provider.

Why you need the NAS server should connect to a cloud.

If you store all your data only on the NAS device for a long time, you won`t have any access to the data in case of a failure. It also makes sharing data very complicated and insecure, since the home network would have to be "opened" for access, which is absolutely not recommended.

The public cloud can be a simple object storage for the integration of applications and backups of the NAS device or a classic collaborative cloud environment. In both cases, the storage capacity can be expanded at any time.

Using a software solution, the private and public clouds synchronize in real time. Depending on the product, this happens either permanently for collaborative work (work and share) or at regular intervals for backups and applications to save resources. In either case, the public cloud maps all or selected data on the NAS server one-to-one. At the same time, they are secured with end-to-end encryption. You have full control over the cloud environment and can manage both models centrally.

All-round carefree package: Request NAS device now!

With us, you can easily order a NAS device from QNAP and Synology completely configured and set up. Our motto: Invest once and benefit for a long time. Because you only pay the purchase price, no expensive licenses. The server is fail-safe, robust and low-maintenance. You don't have to worry about anything thanks to the automatic updates. If you do need help, luckycloud is there to advise you.

Our products for Hybrid Cloud Strategies

The solutions from luckycloud map the various options for using a hybrid cloud efficiently:

1. NAS device + public cloud for location-independent and collaborative work

In the first option, the private and public clouds exchange their data in real time using a smart delta sync algorithm. This means that the public cloud fully or partially maps locally stored folders and files. This means that employees can work from anywhere - even on the home network - via the public cloud by accessing the data on the NAS server, modifying documents online and sharing them internally or externally. Permissions for access and editing can be assigned individually and easily via an admin portal.

So it doesn`t matter from where changes are made - everyone has immediate access to the latest versions of the data.

NAS Sync from luckycloud

Our matching product is NAS Sync - the file-based synchronization of the NAS storage with the public cloud. Data backups are transferred to the cloud in real time on the local NAS device and thus doubly secured. The delta sync algorithm of luckycloud intelligently splits the data into blocks. This means that only a fraction of the actual amount of data needs to be synchronized when changes are made. This is industry-wide, unmatched in speed, and additionally saves storage capacity in the cloud through intelligent deduplication at block level.

2. NAS device + public cloud for cost-effective backups, applications and analyses

The second strategy uses a simple S3 object store as a public cloud for integrating applications, backups and big data analytics. This has a simpler structure than a classic public cloud and accordingly has no functions for editing and sharing documents. On the other hand, the scalable storage is extremely inexpensive, robustly built and efficient. It is therefore ideal for archiving large volumes of data, for example, which would be more expensive to store in the classic cloud. In addition, there is practically infinite storage space available in the cloud. Only you have access to the data - with the key to decrypt the secured data.

S3 from luckycloud

The object storage from luckycloud is easy to use, scalable and particularly inexpensive. It is compatible with the common S3 standard and many interfaces and can therefore be flexibly and easily integrated into existing networks. The solution offers, due to its simplicity, hardly any attack surface for disturbances. This is also ensured by our various data centers in Germany, where the data is distributed. For secure backups, we recommend the so-called 3-2-1 rule:

  • 3 copies: locally on the end device + on the in-house NAS server + in the luckycloud
  • 2 different media: NAS + luckycloud
  • 1 complete backup on a secure external system - the luckycloud
