Federation: The future of cloud

Alan Clark | Nov. 4, 2015
Some see the future of cloud computing as one big public cloud. Others believe that enterprises will ultimately build a single large cloud to host all their corporate services.

Many would raise the question: if Federation creates multiples of clouds, doesn’t that mean cloud benefits are diminished?  I believe the answer is no, due to the fact that a fundamental change has transformed enterprises through the original adoption of cloud computing, namely the creation of a flexible environment able to adapt rapidly to changing needs based on policy and automation.

We can’t time travel like the movies or even predict the future with 100 percent accuracy but hybrid cloud is well on its way, and federation is what the preferred cloud model will be. Through a federated model, hybrid cloud adoption will dramatically accelerate. A future comprised of many clouds simply makes sense – and Federation casts a true vision of global computing.
