How will you use private cloud and/or public cloud in your IT strategy? https://www.crowdcha...
Wikibon believes choices of cloud modes will follow the data: Data locality --> cloud locality.
Workload characteristics are the major determinant in which cloud to use, and where to place data.
will also follow workloads. some will be better on premises, others just fine in cloud.
@dfloyer laws of the land and laws of physics. Regulations and latency. And of course the financial case.
data locality, cost of ingesting data, security, and cost overall play a part in determining where to put workload.
For example, tt makes sense to use the right public cloud if you are exploring architecture & tools for a new system.
@petemanca add compliance and IP protection and that's Wikibon's list, too.
@petemanca and some workloads could even move around between on and off-premises infrastructure!
at a higher level, the use of cloud will be to allow IT to respond faster to the needs of the business. Converged infrastructure led the way to move beyond silos and free resources to take on new projects.
... and it makes sense to put you AI inference code very, very close to where the data is created. e.g., in an IoT or robotics environment.
Compliance a big factor for sure, and with new GDPR laws data protection is critical.
Looking forward to more discussions with customers on this topic at the Dell Technologies booth at VMworld Europe!
@dfloyer compute is transient and data has gravity! Data placement matters!
Our goal in Cloud Management is to enable our customers to create policy and service elements that are trusted and actionable in all clouds. The strategy is to use the best of either Private or Public Clouds, or both, depending on the needs of the app and the business.
