Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
