Chapter 7. Imagining the possibilities with hybrid cloud storage

Cloud computing has enormous potential as an infrastructure technology, but as the new kid on the IT block, it has a lot of catching up to do to match the enormous legacy of on-premises technologies and practices. Therein lies the importance of hybrid cloud computing—the integration of on-premises and cloud infrastructures to achieve the best of both worlds. Over the coming decade, hybrid cloud computing will surprise people in the directions it takes and the solutions that sprout from it.
