Hybrid Cloud Management Survey: The Problem with Existing CMP Deployments

Earlier this year, Embotics teamed up with the Ponemon Institute on a survey looking at enterprise priorities for hybrid cloud management. The purpose of that research was to understand the opportunities, challenges, costs and risks companies experience as they manage their public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures and emerging application container environments. You can check out the full report here.

Transforming How Fanatics Licenses Sports Apparel with Embotics

As server virtualization continues to mature, many organizations are moving beyond simple virtualization into public, private or hybrid cloud environments. Such environments allow authorized users to create their own virtual machines based on templates that are listed in a service cloud. However, self-service models introduce additional complexity and increase the potential for IT resources to be wasted and for costs to spiral out of control. In turn, IT departments are challenged with managing infrastructures that deploy tens of thousands of virtual machines across multiple operating systems in multiple datacenters and fulfilment centers.

2018 Prediction: A New Generation of CMP

A few weeks ago, my colleague Scott Davis contributed a post to this blog taking a look at his predictions for the cloud market in 2018. It’s a fantastic read, and I recommend that you look it over if you haven’t already.

After reading that one again, it got me thinking about what 2018 may hold in store for the cloud market, and it’s got me excited. The cloud landscape is undergoing a massive change as businesses have become increasingly digital. But the way many vendors out there manage cloud environments remains stuck in the past.

Reading the Tea Leaves: Cloud Computing Predictions for 2018

As a long time CTO, I’m used to making predictions during this time of year, but I haven’t frequently looked back to see how I did. Last year I had 3 major predictions on Microservices adoption, SDDC & HCI becoming commodities and increasing trust in the cloud. I’d give myself an A on 1 & 3 as being spot on, with a B- on item 2, as SDDC & HCI have not receded into the background as much as I expected. At least not yet!
