Why Hybrid Cloud Will Win and What It Will Mean for the Enterprise CXO
A conversation with Yousef Khalidi, Distinguished Engineer, Microsoft; David Nelson, Chief Strategist, Cloud Computing, The Boeing Company; Simon Aspinall, Chief of Vertical Markets, Strategy and Marketing, Virtustream; hosted by Gregory Ness, VP Marketing, CloudVelocity
Yousef Khalidi: Hybrid model combines public and private clouds: Some of what you want to keep within your own walls for privacy and some public.
- Age of company and size of portfolio are correlating factors in which kind of cloud they should use.
David Shacochis: There’s only so much you can solve in the public cloud. Enterprises have moved from “What is cloud” to “what is our cloud strategy”.
- Software companies are using cloud as a digital supply chain; using cloud to instantiate new versions of that service.
- Customers are broadening the term of cloud to not my data center.
David Nelson: There’s also the community cloud– the country club model of cloud computing. You have to be invited to participate.
Simon Aspinall: Security and compliance initially held cloud back. Now, those can be addressed.
- Public clouds are considered no performance guaranteed, but that’s really falling down now with new technologies that prevent downtime.
