Cloud bursting is a type of cloud computing deployment model that allows an organization to scale its applications and services from a private cloud to a public cloud, or from one public cloud to another, in response to changing demands for computing resources. This is typically done when there is a sudden increase in workload, such as during a peak sales season or a surge in website traffic, which exceeds the capacity of the organization’s private cloud or on-premises data center. By automatically provisioning additional resources from a public cloud, cloud bursting enables organizations to meet their peak computing demands while minimizing the need for costly infrastructure investments.
