Why Read This Report

Hybrid clouds are the future state of compute and storage for enterprises in the age of the customer. Hybrid cloud storage can now blend on-premises storage infrastructure with public and hosted cloud services. Advances in storage solutions are paving the way for more organizations to properly and more easily use the powerful hybrid combination. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals must balance cloud mobility and on-premises governance with hybrid cloud storage strategies that are optimal for their business technology (BT) agenda, not just convenient to implement. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We're updating it now to reflect our latest research on cloud and enterprise storage.
