A key agenda for businesses to address in 2015 will be how to utilise private and public clouds, effectively and transparently. Irrespective of where the data or application lies, businesses need to engage the most appropriate underlying infrastructure. The infrastructure needs to be more agile by employing hybrid cloud with building blocks like Converged infrastructure , HCI (hyper converged infrastructure) and scalable storage features like SDS (software defined storage) and consistent quality of service. That presents a fabric which helps mobility of data across the various clouds for businesses. This infrastructure would thus move data quickly and cheaply across to where the business needs it. And increasingly, a combination of on-premises cloud and a multi-vendor cloud is the only hybrid cloud that will matter.
