Why Hybrid Cloud Matters: Interview with SDR News and HP Cloud

Andy McCaskey from SDR News and HP Tech Talk discusses the emergence of hybrid clouds with Stephen Spector, Social Media Strategist, HP Cloud and Sunil Chhabra, Senior Director of Marketing, HP Cloud.


From SDR News:


In a wide ranging discussion on the basics of management decisions that must be considered in the cloud journey, Sunil examines the real world model where customers need to manage the deployment of workloads regardless of the origin of the application, either on private or public cloud or in a managed asset environment. End customers have to preserve business agility but at the same time insure that existing IT infrastructure investment is not wasted and insure that the enterprise is not locked in to a specific vendor or deployment scheme.

HP offers "under the same roof" capacity to manage public, private or managed clouds, complemented by professional services. With a strong commitment to open-source efforts under OpenStack, HP's long term focus is in the customer's interest, allowing a mix of open source and proprietary for planning and management.
