Hybrid Cloud Can Break Datacenter Silos - InformationWeek (blog)

Hybrid Cloud Can Break Datacenter Silos - InformationWeek (blog) | Cloud | Scoop.it
Hybrid Cloud Can Break Datacenter Silos
InformationWeek (blog)
Gartner estimates that 70 percent of enterprises will pursue the hybrid cloud by 2015.
Patrick Wolf's insight:

Per te author of this article a "one-size-fits-all" approach does not give enterprises the flexibility to manage these disparate needs.''


Some enterprises already made the decision to move some of their public cloud workload to their on premise, mainly for production environments. 


Public cloud are a no brainer for app dev, test & QA but another story for production workloads that require different type of management strategies.


We fully get this at ASG with our 25 years of experience managing on premise workloads and a foot to the new IT computing paradigm outside the data center.
