Re: Hybrid clouds Eventually Hybrid Cloud will disappear IMO but for now, the cloud technology needs to mature and we need a safety net that is the hybrid solution. Once the evolution is complete and the technology matures it will disappear.

Re: Hybrid clouds The graphics certainly put it in an more understandable way, and how right it may be that when things go right, they really do, and conversely look out for when the plan goes wrong. But most likely the odds for the future are that the hybrid cloud is the way to go with some thoughtful planning on that journey.

Re: Hybrid clouds I agree I love infographics when they are done well they really help to visualize data and get people engaged!

Re: Hybrid clouds @maryam I thought the infographic was really helpful. The visual explanation of benefits is a lot easier to digest than bullet points alone.

Re: Hybrid clouds Hybrid cloud is the solution to security and complexity issues. A number of organizations don't want to just outsource everything - and that's totally understandable.

Re: Hybrid clouds I've been writing about backups/disaster recovery for a couple of decades, but some still do't get it. Backkup services will thrive for a while now. But in a few months, backups will be forgotten again.

Re: Hybrid clouds It's a good restriction because of the possible impacts to US financial markets and the economy. There should also be regulations on backup, as we saw with the ransomware attack this week critical services like medical care were shut down. Appropriate backup and disaster recovery could have addressed some of those issues. If we can't dismantle the threat we need to mitigate it.

Re: Hybrid clouds That's true, but financial services firms tread carefully where regulators are concerned. Regulations require that U.S. financial institutions know where their data is, and it cannot be stored in offshore locatons. Until relatively recently, until some cloud providers made some changes to keep FI data onshore, that meant some couldn't service financial services providers.

Re: Hybrid clouds It may be a cost effective solution as well since public clouds will be able to achieve economies of scale faster and address backup and disaster recovery.  The complexity of all the moving parts and the costs cannot be underestimated.

Hybrid clouds Due to the sensitivity of the data that they have and due to regulatory concerns, many financial services providers opt for the hybrid cloud, but like companies in other industries, financial institutions are losing much of the internal tech expertise to operate the infrastructure for internal cloud portion, so more are going to away from hybrid clouds to public clouds.
