Peak 10: Hybrid IT Environments Offer 'Best Of Both Worlds'

Hybrid Cloud: 'The Best Of Both Worlds'

Does "hybrid IT" describe a transitional state en route to full-cloud infrastructures? Or will it be the permanent state?

Cloud service provider Peak 10 thought hybrid was just a way station on a journey to "all cloud," the Charlotte, N.C.-based company said. But a recent survey it conducted among IT executives and managers told it otherwise. "Organizations choose hybrid IT because it makes business sense," it concluded in its report on the study results.
