Hybrid Cloud Strategy in a Hybrid Cloud World

I think we can all agree that the technology world we live in has been in a form of transition or even a multiple metamorphosis, if you will, to describe the transformation from the physical world into the virtual world and now the transformation from the private to the public cloud and everywhere in between.

Demand for VMware Services 2017

I believe we have reached a point at which any negative thoughts and concerns about the effects Dell’s acquisition of EMC might have on VMware are getting put to rest.

Is 2017 the Year When Cloud Migrations Really Take Off?

Is 2017 the year that cloud migrations really take off? First, let me preface that statement by defining the term cloud migrations to mean applications or workloads that have or will be migrated to an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) platform. With that said, Corporations in general, have been laying down the groundwork by training, hiring and or building a cloud services team that will also encompass a cloud migration group or what is also commonly referred to as the migration factories.  All the pieces have been put into place and what is left is the execution of the migration. For some companies, the overall cloud strategy is a strategy to not just get to the cloud, but also could be a strategy to get control of the workloads that may have been deployed to the public cloud along the way.
