Enterprises love the hybrid cloud – but it’s all about getting the app management right

November 16, 2018 / James Bourne

Hybrid cloud is the ideal IT model for the majority of organisations – yet comparatively few have it in place today.

That was the key finding from a new report by hyperconverged infrastructure firm Nutanix. The study, the firm’s first Enterprise Cloud Index, polled 2,300 respondents and found that while enterprises plan to up their hybrid cloud usage, less than one in five (18%) said they were on the road to hybrid today.

The research found there needs to be more done than just a simple rollout. Public cloud is not a cure-all, with more than one in three (35%) respondents admitted to overspending their public cloud budgets. Key to getting initiatives right included matching applications to the right cloud environment; with visibility an interesting part of that. 88% of those polled said application mobility across any cloud would ‘solve a lot of problems.’
