Re: Not moving everything
@mhh I've thought a lot about Netflix's usage of AWS. They started with streaming well before Amazon got into the business. What would happen if Amazon decided to fire them as a customer? There aren't all that many services that could handle the load - Google maybe?

Re: Not moving everything
Joe, I agree I would have also expected that choice to be higher based on the still very evident cloud fears.

Re: Not moving everything
I think the reason why many companies move everything to the cloud is for some cost savings, so it would be harder to justify the overhead of managing both cloud AND "non-cloud" operations. Small companies are willing to take on some risk of flying on a cloud without a net.... 

And even some big companies have demonstrated that it's not that risky. Netflix even uses its competitor's (AWS) cloud for its bread and butter.

Not moving everything
Honestly, I'm surprised option 2 isn't higher, considering the problems of centralization that have begun to take center stage in the headlines lately.
