Cloud anywhere: Azure for hybrid and multicloud environments 25 04. Regulatory, isolated, and disconnected workloads Some organizations may require the ability to either run completely disconnected from public cloud or store sensitive data only outside of public cloud. These requirements can be the result of physical environments as well, as we will see in the use cases below. Examples Meeting isolation requirements Critical industries, such as finance and manufacturing, may require that their systems and applications run in isolation. Government agencies often desire critical information to be stored and accessed only from within the four walls of the agency, absolutely without being connected to the internet. These requirements are often a security measure or a way to comply with regulatory requirements. Disconnected computing at the edge We often see hybrid cloud scenarios in which systems and processes are isolated from the internet because of intermittent connectivity. An easy-to-understand example involves cruise ships—satellite connectivity is both expensive and limited, so moving massive data can be cost- prohibitive and unreliable. If you want to be able to deliver first-class experience for your cruise guests anywhere, you want to have the same apps on board the cruise ship whether it is on land or at sea.
