The Initial Journey to the Cloud is Over with NetApp

After nearly two decades since the first use of cloud computing in modern IT, organizations have completed the first phase of their journey into cloud, and now, the next stage of the transition begins. In this episode of On-Premise IT podcast, brought to you by NetApp, host Stephen Foskett and panelists, Joey D’Antoni and Max Mortillaro, and Jeff Baxter from NetApp, discuss the unfolding of the cloud transition. Although the migration to cloud part is over for the most part, the journey hasn’t been the same for every company. Not every organization’s itenerary was packing and leaving for the cloud. There are organizations that consciously chose to leave a section of their workloads on-premises, or maybe even move things back on-premises after running them on public cloud because that made the most sense. But whatever curve organizations followed, it appears that they have worked out what and whether to migrate to cloud, a decision that was shrouded in ambiguity in the early stages.
