Solutions Review recently had the chance to sit down with Chris Lamborn, Head of Worldwide Channel Strategy and Programs at NetApp. Lamborn talked about the evolution of cloud computing and how enterprises are beginning to take advantage of the resources and abilities the cloud offers. He notes in the interview that as the tech market at large shifts towards the cloud, there needs to be software and tools available to help companies make the transition.
Lamborn states that in the past few years, enterprises jumped headfirst into the cloud because it was a new technology. Those companies wanted to be the first to enter the new era without first understanding what the cloud was. Now, Lamborn says, those companies realize the challenge of enabling a smooth transition to a cloud environment. They require a strategy that lets them migrate data and workload to the clouds at a manageable pace.
In the interview, Lamborn highlights what he calls a “hybrid multi-cloud” – an environment which combines multiple cloud deployments, both public and private, and on-premise systems. Vendors like NetApp provide users with the management and migration tools to move their data, information, and workloads between each environment seamlessly. This system eliminates the siloing of tasks in one environment and lets users move their business-critical workloads to the environment where it makes the most sense to run.
