Over the years, I’ve learned that predicting what will happen in emerging technologies is much easier than predicting when it will happen. Case in point: hybrid clouds. Many of us in the cloud community predicted in 2009 that cloudbursting would be the impetus for an explosion in public cloud consumption; and I went so far as picking 2010 as the beginning of the transition.
Well, my prediction was sound in direction but way off the mark in timing. Since 2009, I’ve learned that the barriers to hybrid cloud are more numerous than originally anticipated — something I’ll address in greater depth in a future post. However, seeing mass adoption on the horizon in 2016 (I’m crossing my fingers this time), it’s important to move the conversation forward by providing some introspection on where the hybrid cloud is today.
