Hybrid clouds are blowing into enterprise at a fast pace, according to a new survey of cloud and storage professionals. The respondents are building hybrid cloud solutions to leverage the advantages of the cloud without having to discard their current computing and storage infrastructures. Avere Systems, which provides enterprise storage for the hybrid cloud, conducted the survey of 205 technology professionals at the 2014 Amazon Web Services Summit and the Cloud Expo in New York City. Fifty-eight percent of the respondents are adopting hybrid cloud strategies, and the same percent plan to migrate some of their on-premises applications to the cloud within the next two years. "Most organizations today are straddling between on-premises and public cloud solutions as they look to implement their cloud strategies," says Rebecca Thompson, vice president of marketing at Avere Systems. "Whether their data lives on-premise or in the cloud, data movement needs to be both transparent and easily managed."
