October 16, 2019 / Benjamin Rains

Hewlett Packard Enterprise President and CEO Antonio Neri told 2019 Best of Breed (BoB) conference attendees that Amazon Web Services’ Outposts product is simply an on-ramp to get customers to move their data to the public cloud.To me, Outposts is just a way to continue to lure you to move to the [public] cloud because their ultimate objective is to move your data to the [public] cloud,” said Neri in a question-and-answer session. “We have this saying: When you check into the public cloud, it is like checking into the Hotel California. You check in and you never check out. What customers are realizing now is that the cost of egressing that data back is enormous. Enormous.”AWS Outposts the public cloud behemoth’s on-premises hardware offering, which is slated to be released by the end of the yearis a “validation” from AWS of hybrid cloud market momentum.
