A hybrid cloud seems like the best of both worlds. You can protect your sensitive and mission critical applications in your IT’s private cloud, while outsourcing all non-essential data into the public cloud. Seems like a great idea, but how do you do it? How do you determine which data goes where? How do you manage both clouds efficiently? And what about security? Join this panel of experts as they discuss whether the hybrid cloud is a panacea or another headache for IT departments.
