Cloud masterclass: delivering hybrid cloud successfully and at scale

Presented by

David Simpkins, Simon Walker, and Ryan Greer

About this talk

A cloud-only approach can present problems that we’ve discussed in earlier webinars. And it’s these problems that are driving most global organisations towards a hybrid cloud strategy. But how do you deliver successfully on that approach at scale? As cloud solutions prove their reliability, security and deliver on their cost advantages, the rate of migration will only continue to increase. But not all workloads can migrate to the cloud. Some legacy services are restricted because of technology, regulation or security. And there’s the burden of proof that the cloud has transformed costs. 86% of customers with workloads in public cloud by 2020 will be multi cloud (1) 80% will overshoot cloud budgets due to lack of cost optimisation by 2020 (2) How do you get visibility across your private and public cloud estate and manage both effectively? Which workloads will migrate and which won’t? And once you have workloads in the cloud, how can you optimise costs to deliver against your business plan? These are the questions we explored with a team of experts on private and public cloud migration services in our webinar. They shared what they had learnt from tackling these challenges with large multinational organisations.
