From the editor: Yes, we’re talking about hybrid cloud. Again.


Like other industry experts, we believe hybrid cloud is the future of IT. Why?

Digital transformation.

Some say this phrase is a buzzword, but whatever you call it, it’s the future of business, and open hybrid cloud is the best way to prepare.

We help a lot of organizations deploy open hybrid cloud environments. (Not to boast, but recent research* shows Red Hat® customers are further along in hybrid cloud adoption than the general market.) To help others by sharing what we know, we’ll continue offering hybrid cloud advice, insights, and more in Red Hat Shares―starting with Irshad Raihan’s blog post:
