2014 is being hailed by trends analysts as the year of the hybrid cloud. VMware has emerged as the leader of the hybrid cloud market. Reports from Gartner suggest that in 2015, nearly 70% of big corporations will implement the hybrid cloud in their environment. The move to hybrid is an eventual next step for businesses who have heavily invested in private cloud infrastructure. As large corporations become more comfortable using the public cloud to operate non-mission critical infrastructure, the hybrid cloud model will gain in popularity. Cost savings and efficiency will become the key drivers behind companies wanting to move into this direction.
