Hybrid and Multi Cloud

The best of all worlds?

One of the most powerful tools for breaking down silos and integrating resources is cloud computing. But multi-tenancy cloud is not the ideal environment for every application or every class of data and some will need to remain on-prem for the foreseeable future; nor are all clouds equal.

As time goes on, the great liberator can become a jailer with companies effectively locked into their chosen cloud platforms by proprietary data formats and prohibitive data egress charges. Which is why pragmatic and forward-looking IT leaders are increasingly adopting hybrid and multi-cloud strategies which provide the advantages that cloud brings to bear while spreading risk and maximizing their own control and freedom to choose.

Keynote: Making the case for cloud-only

The journey from a phrase in a meeting (hey! lets call it "cloud only") to sipping champagne in a car park outside an empty data centre in Watford. The methods we used to persuade the FT technology department to migrate everything to the cloud. Finding a metric we could use as a north star then begging, pleading and threatening our way to get people moving their systems.

Mark Barnes, Foundation Services Technical Officer, Financial Times
