Tiered hybrid

Deploy new frontend applications in the cloud and reuse existing backend applications that stay on-premises.

Architecture: Tiered hybrid

Focusing on frontend applications

In a tiered hybrid scenario, you deploy new frontend applications in the cloud and reuse existing backend applications that stay on-premises. You might also migrate existing frontend applications from on-premises to the cloud.

Advantages

Many frontend applications are subject to frequent changes. Running these applications in the public cloud simplifies the setup of a continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) process that you can use to roll out updates in an efficient and automated manner.

Performance-sensitive frontends and frontends that are subject to frequent changes can substantially benefit from the load balancing, multi-regional deployments, and autoscaling features that a cloud deployment enables.

Whether they are implementing user interfaces, APIs, or handling IoT data ingestion, frontend applications can benefit from the capabilities that cloud services such as Firebase, Cloud CDN, or Cloud IoT offer.
