With many CIOs and IT practitioners continuing to express concern regarding control and security in public cloud computing models, is some sort of “hybrid” model the final stop on the cloud computing journey or is it merely a transitory architecture; a pit stop on the road to a fully public cloud computing implementation? Or is it the case that the lack of clarity surrounding the definition of “hybrid” causing the perception that hybrid clouds are being implemented in the first place? This session will examine the definition of “hybrid” cloud and whether or not they are valid as target architectures or merely a transition toward a fully public cloud computing model.
