A hybrid cloud provides you with the largest number of options, according to those that sell them. You get a private cloud coupled with one or more public clouds, with workloads distributed across them.

With his Deno project, a secure TypeScript runtime built on the same Google V8 JavaScript engine as Node.js, we get an idea.
