The future of cloud is clear - and its not what you think

This session will explore the adoption of cloud services and how the initial pre-dictions of mass migration of workloads to public cloud, AWS in particular, are proving to be overblown. As cloud services mature and a new generation of highly capable and easy-to-use private clouds emerge, we are seeing informed customers that are expecting to consume services from both private clouds as well as multiple public clouds. Every public cloud vendor, including AWS, has been forced to react to this new customer reality. We close the session with an intriguing set of predictions on the evolution of cloud over the next few years.

  • The evolution of cloud over the next few years.
  • How public cloud vendors are reacting to the new customer reality.
