There is a long-standing dream of hybrid cloud that combines the best of datacenter and cloud architecture, but does this exist for storage? In this episode of the On-Premise IT podcast, Enrico Signoretti and Chris Evans join Molly Presley of Hammerspace and Stephen Foskett of Gestalt IT to discuss the reality of hybrid cloud storage. Like a hybrid car, the dream of hybrid cloud is to bring the best of two different infrastructure approaches together in a truly unified fashion. But most hybrid cloud solutions fail deliver on this promise in terms of technology, protocols, management, security, and usability. Can a true hybrid cloud storage solution exist? And what will it take to bring this to market? Hammerspace is creating a global data environment rather than simply hybrid cloud storage, with the goal of enabling IT to manage data while users simply access a single namespace.
