Once an enterprise has in-house computing in a private cloud, it's time to link to public clouds for elasticity, disaster recovery, and cost efficiency. But connecting public and private systems isn't straightforward: workloads may not be portable, and policies between on-premise and on-demand platforms have to be enforced. This session will examine the integration of public cloud platforms with in-house private clouds, and the creation of self-regulating "hybrid" cloud architectures.
