Welcome to the June 2015 Newsletter.

It is generally accepted by analysts and consultants that the hybrid cloud market is maturing, with 2015 set to be a pivotal year for the technology. Even so, hybrid has its limitations - because the majority of enterprises still deploy an on-premise infrastructure in addition to their cloud solution, IT teams are still subject to the same procurement issues: expense, lengthy build times, and the on-going costs required to maintain, manage and update equipment when necessary. In an Opinion piece in this e-newsletter by NetApp's Martin Warren, he argues that consultancy services have a large part to play in ensuring that public and private IT solutions are properly integrated with legacy on-premise infrastructure

According to Warren: "By adopting a hybrid cloud solution, which is designed and architected in a bespoke manner to align with business needs, an enterprise can take advantage of the flexibility of cloud, with rapidly scalable resources and decreased provision times, coupled with the data security and compliance benefits of an on-premise solution." Improved data management technologies allow an enterprise to store sensitive data on-premise, but deploy analytics in the public cloud. Analysis of that data can still take place in the public cloud, despite the source data residing on-premise, as the data management software makes the infrastructure act as a single entity rather than two separate solutions knitted together. It is an argument we are hearing from lots of different quarters these days - what do our readers think? Feel free to let me know via the email address below.
