About the Presentation:
The Hybrid cloud is allowing workloads to move between private and public clouds as computing needs and costs change.  Hybrid cloud gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options. The key to creating a successful hybrid cloud is to select the right hypervisor and wide-area network solution. I will explain the emerging technologies that are going to be leading the world of Big Data and different options available to build an optimal hybrid cloud solution.
