There has been a ton of buzz in the industry lately around hybrid cloud. From enterprises developing multi-vendor cloud strategies to hosting providers offering products that take advantage of different infrastructure types, there has been a definite shift toward hybrid clouds as the preferred IT hosting model.
But what is hybrid cloud? Is it using a public cloud with a private cloud? Or is it using dedicated hosting with a public cloud? Or could it be using an on-premise private cloud combined with an off-premise dedicated hosting provider? The answer is yes! Hybrid cloud could be any combination of using a public cloud, private cloud or dedicated hosting. With a hybrid cloud, you can spread your workloads across each of these different environments to run them where they're the best fit for your application.
In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Mark Majewski, Cloud Solutions Architect at Rackspace, will define what the hybrid cloud really is and seek to highlight key architectural attributes to give you and your business a better understanding of why a hybrid cloud is the best fit for your workloads. He will also discuss ‘demystifying the hybrid cloud' and common characteristics of hybrid cloud architectures.
