Why Hybrid Cloud Matters: Workloads Jump Cloud-to-Cloud in the Real World
HP’s Stephan Spector introduces an expert guest on Hybrid Cloud, Sunil Chhabra, Senior Director of Marketing, HP Cloud.
In a wide ranging discussion on the basics of management decisions that must be considered in the cloud journey, Sunil examines the real world model where customers need to manage the deployment of workloads regardless of the origin of the application, either on private or public cloud or in a managed asset environment. End customers have to preserve business agility but at the same time insure that existing IT infrastructure investment is not wasted and insure that the enterprise is not locked in to a specific vendor or deployment scheme.
HP offers “under the same roof” capacity to manage public, private or managed clouds, complemented by professional services. With a strong commitment to open-source efforts under OpenStack, HP’s long term focus is in the customer’s interest, allowing a mix of open source and proprietary for planning and management.
