Are you using on-prem storage or cloud? Is it for backup, archival or primary data? The on-again, off-again relationship between enterprise IT and the cloud is continuing as we all figure out the platform’s role in the IT infrastructure of today and tomorrow.
As we race to the promise of IT nirvana that is cloud computing, we’re learning a lot. It’s true that when something seems to good to be true, it often is.
The cloud has become a home for data, apps and compute and offers a new level of transparency, access, agility and economics that IT hasn't previously seen. At the same time, when it comes to enterprise deployments, IDC reports that more than 50 percent of production apps that move to the cloud end up back on premises.
So, what's the deal? Which apps are cloud ready? Which apps are better hosted close to your data center? How do you find the right balance? What technologies exist today to make the cloud more accessible to more data?
