Public or Private Cloud? Nope, Go Hybrid Cloud Instead


Joint Post with Andrea Monaci, EMEA Marketing Director, HP Helion


David Floyer and Stuart Miniman recently published a report, Strategic Comparison of Public Cloud versus Hybrid Cloud, on Wikibon Premium. The report focuses on the decision to move applications into the public cloud without taking advantage of the opportunity that a hybrid cloud strategy affords.


“Wikibon believes the biggest mistake organizations can make is converting major applications into the public cloud (including SaaS) without thinking about the implications to their existing business process workflows. Unlike web giants, most enterprise companies have a large, sprawling and integrated application portfolio. Wikibon recommends that IT develop and implement a hybrid cloud strategy (see Wikibon’s guidance on creating a hybrid cloud manifesto), using the existing workflows and compliance for both the public and private cloud components in the hybrid cloud.”


The HP Helion portfolio for enterprise IT is focused on creating a catalogue of services for the IT department. A specific service in the catalogue can spin complex at will infrastructure and application provisioning, deployed on a mix of public, private, virtual private clouds from different suppliers, and  traditional IT. And change the IT suppliers at will as business requirements change. 


We developed a joint report with CIO on how enterprises can address critical requirements by building a seamless hybrid cloud environment:
