The Future of On-Prem in a Cloud World

Rich Stroffolino shared an interview from ZDNet, considering what the roll of the cloud would be in the data center. Rich found it part of an interesting trend in the enterprise, seeing cloud computing as less of a zero-sum game with on-prem, and more of a spectrum. In the interview, Michael Howard and Monty Widenius both actually predict a move back to on-prem infrastructure, as cost and performance are better presented vs the seeming ease of the cloud. It’s an interesting debate, we’ll see how the winds of change impact the role of the public cloud going forward.
