  • Understanding the economic advantages of a hybrid cloud environment

    One hears a lot of talk regarding private clouds as the first step on a company’s cloud adoption journey. That may be a good start, but without adding the public cloud’s inherent multiplexing efficiency for a hybrid solution, the cost advantages of shared infrastructure will not be fully achieved.

      Storage is likely one of the last stops for gamers looking to convert dollars into fun.
