When discussing a hybrid cloud strategy, much thought is put into making the experience as frictionless as possible. The introduction or products like Azure Stack and AWS outposts have been very popular for this reason, but result in customers being locked into a specific public cloud platform. By providing a platform that is cloud agnostic, Stratoscale is able to make a developer friendly private cloud a reality.
Welcome to the first Gestalt IT Cloud News for 2017. In this week’s newsletter:
– ZeroStack wants to manage the cloud with the cloud
– Velostrata moves you to the cloud in minutes with their new product release
– StratoScale wants to be your private cloud
Plus Tim Crawford’s piece on the real price of the public cloud.
Stratoscale is making a play at a private cloud. They have an interesting pitch. They realize most customers, even when they can’t for compliance purposes, really want to use Amazon. There’s a reason it dominates not just public imagination, but the market. So they’re offering a solution to offer the equivalent of a private AWS region.
