Session Description 

While most enterprises live a multi-cloud existence, integrating with a cloud provider for truly hybrid operations can be daunting. The integration costs and organizational effort required are significant. The ONUG Open Hybrid Cloud Working Group has undertaken a study with 451 Research to explore the costs involved. This session will discuss some of the early results from the first stage of the study. It will include peer benchmarking data on hybrid cloud intentions and start to dig into where costs lie. We’ll also look at 451’s Cloud Pricing Index and metrics around efficiency.
