Cloud computing will not take over the world as some people will have you believe. The problem with it is that cloud computing needs a hybrid solution to thrive. Massive economic speed bumps and a divide in business culture impedes the adoption of the cloud for every application, and every workload. Organizations with established infrastructure that have applications running on dedicated infrastructure resist the move toward the cloud, for any number of reasons. Compliance issues, performance requirements, and enterprise operations that aren't convinced the cloud will have a considerable revenue impact are all realities that demonstrate that not all IT resources should exist in public clouds today.
Adoption will be slow without some solutions that serve as a stop-gap measure to these attitudes and concerns. It's clear that hybrid cloud computing approaches have valid roles in bridging this gap within enterprises. A cloud hybrid solution is what's called for to bridge the new with the old, dedicated with virtualized, traditional and cloud. A hybrid solution will increase cloud adoption and help IT effectively blend public clouds and local IT assets to get the most possible return for technology investments.
