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.

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”.

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.
