Although hybrid cloud scenarios will dominate, there are many challenges that inhibit working hybrid cloud implementations.
Organisations that are not planning to use hybrid cloud indicated a number of concerns, including: integration challenges, application incompatibilities, a lack of management tools, a lack of common APIs and a lack of vendor support.
“Of course in the case of hybrid cloud, these top concerns also highlight some of the top opportunities for providers,” Anderson said.
“We know that public cloud services will continue to grow. We also know that private cloud services (of various types) will become more widely used.
“Therefore, providers must focus on the top hybrid cloud challenges to be successful in meeting the growing demand for hybrid cloud solutions.”
