Are Hybrid Clouds Ready For The Mainstream?

November 20th, 2016

According to Gartner, nearly half of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments by the end of 2017. Why? Hybrid clouds offer a number of benefits – they’re on-demand, offer flexible development and test environments, and provide greater agility in scaling capacity without the heavy CapEx.

That’s not to mention the system redundancy and cost elimination that comes from moving certain workloads to the cloud. Some surveys also point to growing IT savings from hybrid cloud deployments, with a recent Virtustream post reporting that teams have “reduced IT costs by an impressive 24 per cent with hybrid cloud.”
