Hybrid is considered by many to be the future of cloud. Companies are intrigued by the possibility of a cloud that adapts to the needs of a business, instead of the other way around. But while many companies will sit on the sidelines of hybrid cloud adoption, others will take practical steps today, leveraging private PaaS options.

In addition to supporting reduced development and deployment times, Private PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) can be an effective enablement layer for hybrid clouds. This webinar offers practical steps for implementing a private cloud which can burst to public when needed or support applications on both a private and public infrastructure - a single private PaaS makes it possible and practical. Stop worrying about future capacity and plan your infrastructure around where you want your company to be, instead of where you are today.

This webcast discusses:

  • What are public, private, and hybrid clouds
  • Drivers for hybrid cloud
  • How Private PaaS enables hybrid
  • What to consider when implementing cloud infrastructure
  • How enterprises can migrate to hybrid
