Often praised for cloudbursting, failovers and disaster recovery, hybrid-cloud sounds ideal on paper: if one of your clouds is unavailable or over capacity, transfer the load to another one!
But it is critical to understand that hybrid cloud is not the panacea to your availability and capacity problems. In fact, hybrid cloud is only a tool to address those problems; one that should be wielded carefully, as there are more wrong ways to deploy across hybrid cloud infrastructure than there are right ways.

On this panel, experts from diverse industries including public and private cloud, systems integration and cloud management will seek to answer the following questions:
  • In practice, which use cases are well-suited for hybrid cloud?
  • Is it truly economical to “own the base and rent the spike”?
  • What are the challenges an organization should expect to face when deploying hybrid cloud infrastructure?
  • Are availability and capacity the only benefits of hybrid cloud?
