SharePoint Hybrids are a compelling model for how SharePoint can work In a variety of new ways. There is more than one type of hybrid, a flavor for everyone in fact. There is the basic hybrid - SharePoint on-premises, on your own infrastructure, and Office 365. Other models also exist, however, for example what if one of your farms already exists in the cloud? What about geo-redundancy if your needs reach across the globe? What about app hybrids - a provider hosted app that works in 365 and on premises? A hybrid method to connect data on every device with one drive for business? Do you know what one way outbound hybrid search is? All of these are models that extend SharePoint from the traditional on premises model and into what can be called a hybrid.
Hybrids are very exciting in the new app ecosystem with Microsoft and in SharePoint 2013. While certainly not necessarily in the realm of the internet of things, it's something to pay attention to as the traditional client / server model evolves. We'll try to distill this information with some practical examples, and focus on key elements of this very broad topic.
