Last week I attended the Fire 2012 panel on hybrid cloud with Yousef Khalidi, David Nelson, Simon Aspinall and David Shacochis. Our conclusion: hybrid cloud will win over other cloud operating models because it will offer enterprises increased choice and agility. Ultimately the lines will be blurred between cloud operating models because of enhanced service and network integration. Expect video of the panel to be available in coming weeks at the Future in Review Media Gallery. Stay tuned for comments and transcripts.
Later this week I’ll be speaking at Smart Technology World on a deep dive session on “Intelligent Systems and the Cloud & Mobile Infrastructure” with Abhi Dugar and Jean S. Bozman from IDC, along with Arista Networks’ Kenneth Duda.
