All Tech Field Day Podcast

It’s Time to Repatriate Applications from the Cloud

Although the definition of hybrid cloud is loose, it’s inescapable that organizations are getting smarter about locating applications on-premises as well. In this episode of the On-Premise IT podcast, Michael Levan and Jon Myer join Stephen Foskett to discuss on-premises IT. It can seem that this discussion is driven by cost, but companies are actually getting a lot smarter and considering how to make the best use of resources in any location. In addition to on-prem versions of cloud platforms, OpenStack is still being deployed and OpenShift allows transparent location of applications. For Kubernetes applications, Rancher, Portainer, Lens, Arc, Anthos, and more. Cloud Field Day includes presentations from SoloIO, Forward Networks, and Fortinet, and all of these are important solutions for modern cloud as well. Cloud technology is a breath of fresh air for the datacenter and the people who work in modern IT, as applications are repatriated to the modern hybrid cloud.
