Bernard Golden, VP of enterprise solutions at Enstratius, delivered a session at the Interop show last week on popular hybrid cloud myths and the real-world facts that disprove them.
1. The hybrid cloud is an extension of virtualization and converged infrastructure.
Reducing the management burden and creating a runbook of processes and images is the key to reaping the most benefit from cloud environments, he said, and then he fielded questions from the audience about "letting the application guys loose" on cloud resources in a free-for-all. He responded with an overview of capacity planning and policy enforcement tools, but I think the sentiment behind the question is valid. Automated and on-demand provisioning is great on paper, but in the hands of overeager developers, it could turn into a resource suck.
2. You can create a hybrid cloud using one, homogeneous standard.
3. Hybrid clouds are for enterprises.
