Topics in Hybrid Cloud Worth Following

From disaster recovery to cloud migration

I wrote a blog for Cloud Ecosystem last month that talks about the disruption potential of hybrid clouds for disaster recovery.  You can read it here: Hybrid Cloud will Transform Disaster Recovery.  Within a few days CloudVelocity CTO Anand Iyengar weighed in shortly after with: The Hybrid Cloud is Ideal for Disaster Recovery.

A highlight from both blogs: the on demand pay as you go cloud model is a far superior operating model for DR, if and only if a true hybrid cloud can be deployed.

The issue of how a true hybrid cloud can be deployed was addressed in a great interview at Cloudcast with Brian Gracely and Rajeev Chawla called: Accelerating the Hybrid Cloud.  The interview is especially relevant to the demands of deploying traditional multi-tier apps into a hybrid model.  It isn’t easy, but it is a powerful game-changer for IT agility, availability and scalability.

Interesting Rumor
Had a recent conversation with a friend who is close to the hybrid cloud deployments of several leading companies, including those who have migrated off of public cloud into private clouds (that will eventually evolve into hybrid clouds).  Now that a certain public cloud provider has upgraded their IaaS offering they are looking at returning at least one app from their dedicated private cloud data center back into IaaS. 

Now that you think about it, with a multitude of viable IaaS providers and vast populations of private clouds it is perhaps only a matter of time before cloud migration evolves into cloud transport.  That is, enterprises develop the ability to move as needed as IaaS offerings change, requirements change, SLAs change, rather than being locked in to any IaaS provider.

Today that is nearly impossible for traditional, multi-tier apps which depend on critical services like LDAP or Active Directory, or require specialized authentication or security services.

Hybrid Cloud Panel
I’ll certainly be bringing this up on our upcoming Future in Review panel on Thursday afternoon right after Mark Hurd’s Centerpiece interview on the future of cloud, big data and analytics.  The cloud panel abstract:

"Why Hybrid Cloud Will Win and What It Will Mean for the Enterprise CXO": A conversation with Yousef Khalidi, Distinguished Engineer, Microsoft; David Nelson, Chief Strategist, Cloud Computing, The Boeing Company; Jonathan King, VP Cloud Strategy and Business Development, Savvis; and Simon Aspinall, Chief of Vertical Markets, Strategy and Marketing, Virtustream; hosted by Gregory Ness, VP Marketing, CloudVelocity.
