Open Hybrid Cloud: When Open Really Means Open
Not everyone that claims “openness” in cloud computing is really “open”
Innovation in cloud computing is dominated by open source software today, which is great news for companies looking to build clouds from open source components as there’s a wealth of projects to choose from. However integration is a challenge and creating a true hybrid environment isn’t easy, especially when cloud vendors have different definitions of “open”, some being more “open” than others. What makes a cloud truly “open” and why is open beneficial? And how are organizations achieving a hybrid environment? Are there hybrid cloud offerings that create more of a turnkey experience and if so how is this achieved? This webinar will dig into the topic of what open hybrid cloud means today, the promise of open clouds in the future and the best practices for implementing an open, hybrid cloud strategy.
