Avoid the Myths of Hybrid-Cloud and Go Multi-Cloud! Post 2 of 3 – broker-based Hybrid Cloud By AL Co-Founder, Kris Saxton
Following our recent presentation showcasing Automation Logic’s collaboration with the Ministry of Justice, the first of our three part blog series explored Hybrid Cloud as a mixture of private and public cloud and framed this more as a predicament than a strategy. Now, in our second post, we’ll explore the other main type of Hybrid Cloud: the broker or abstraction layer, which we’ll refer to as ‘broker-based Hybrid Cloud’. We’ll expose this as an over-engineered fantasy that delivers perpetually reduced choice and introduce our simpler alternative: Multi-Cloud.

We’re not contracted to do that…
Not so long ago we had systems integrators and a few of them truly took on the overall ownership of a project and everything that goes with it.
Those were golden days for some but things change.
More often than not we hear of outsourcers or internal teams spending as much time negotiating who is responsible for what after the contract has been signed.

Observations from a Year of ‘Enterprise’…
Is it possible to change behaviour from 'beat your colleague' to 'beat your competition'?
I have spent many years at work in startups and have become accustomed to teams of people spending their energy working together to create things and solve problems. But I have spent most of the last year supporting enterprises adapt to the changing needs of the IT market, most specifically helping with DevOps and Continuous Delivery.
