Debunking the Top 9 Hybrid Cloud Myths

The cloud model is here to stay. In fact, many organizations are expanding their infrastructure directly into some type of cloud platform. Initially, there were concerns about the operation of a cloud. It was a new technology, adoption was low, and many businesses were worried about resources. The modern cloud has come a long way. Organizations clearly see the direct benefits of working with a cloud infrastructure.

Here’s the reality: More solutions become available every day, but with a learning curve and numerous management challenges and considerations.
