IT organizations want the full cloud experience – no hassle, no planning and automated IT organizations want the full cloud experience – no hassle, no planning and automated simplicity with a monthly bill for the resources they use to run their applications. They want an IT-as-a-Service “vending machine” that end users can run with minimal involvement from the the IT organization. But what many companies need is a little different. They also need an onsiteinfrastructure because not all applications can run in the public cloud (like AWS) easily or the public cloud may not meet security, governance or data sovereignty requirements. Most applications are on-site now and will require a significant effort to migrate them to the public cloud when the time is right (the realities of “lift and shift”). What these companies need is a cloud on-site, but one that offers a public cloud experience, at a cost-effective price point.
