VPS Cloud Free Trial, hybrid cloud and cloud brokerage have day in sun

February 22, 2017

The response for users giving way to large VPS cloud free trial providers is to retreat to what seems to be a more defensible position.

On the part of enterprises, it is important to recognize that the big cloud providers will be the location of external workloads, but that many workloads will remain on-premise. This is seen to be hybrid cloud, and is assumed to represent the future of enterprise workload management.


On the part of legacy provider, it is to position themselves as cloud brokers – entities that can assist companies in selecting suitable application deployment locations, help design apps so they can operate properly in a given deployment location, offer software products to aid in managing multiple deployment locations, and manage cloud-based applications on behalf of the user.

It is obvious that users will retain on-premises infrastructure for the foreseeable future. Given the usage of VPS cloud unlimited bandwidth service there is, ipso facto, hybrid computing. The most important question is that how much infrastructure will remain on-premises and in what form? One of the main visions proffered for hybrid cloud is an available cloud environment based on, say, OpenStack, which interoperates with a similar public service. Another vision proffered is an on-premises cloud environment interoperating with a dissimilar public service.

The biggest issue is that both hybrid cloud and cloud brokerage are vague, ambiguous terms which can be used to describe almost possible arrangement of app deployment and infrastructure option.


Depending on what form of hybrid cloud one envisions, the suitable solution varies widely. And the question of what emerges as the dominant form of hybrid cloud emerges conquering will dictate the fortunes of both users and vendors in the future.

For what it is worth, it is said to be unlikely that most companies will end up implementing available cloud environment, both for the cost reasons is an extremely complicated technical undertaking. Beginning in 2016, business will increasingly recognize that they:

  • Cannot afford the infrastructure and staff costs to implement a cloud
  • Want to direct their investment and talent to value efforts, applications.

In this year we will see endless argument of hybrid cloud computing. And at the end of the year, everything will remain quite much as they stand at the start: increasing use of public cloud computing for the new applications, and an unchanged on-premises environment mostly used for current applications and new applications which seem like legacy applications.


As to cloud brokerage, VPS cloud Linux vendors will confront the reality of the all distributors and there is a limited amount of margin available for value added services. Moreover, the providers will also realize that cloud brokerage is more like consulting and less like standardized offerings that means it is complicated and need highly skilled talent. Anybody who has to spend all time around a large consultancy will realize that they can operate quite differently than a product providers – lower margins and a constant look for staff utilization opportunities.

By the end of 2016, most presumptive cloud brokers will recognize it is a difficult providing to bring off successfully and one that does not afford large ahead and wasteful spending. Let look to increased layoffs at the end of 2016 as incumbent providers recognize that their future looks quite different than their glorious past.
