In a world of public, private, hybrid and multi, finding the sweet spot is harder than ever - especially with GDPR winging its way into our lives come 2018.
Luckily, if you missed Computing's web seminar Cloud Mix and Match - Getting the Balance Right last week, it's now available on demand.
It was a packed panel, with representation from many different angles of comment. Systems engineer director for Western Europe at hyperconverged infrastructure firm Nutanix Trevor Kelly gave the vendor view, while his customer Jon Forster - consultant global programme director at Fitness First - was on hand to dispense real world use cases, considerations and hurdles with managing cloud infrastructure at a company currently making a raft of changes in a globe-spanning empire of gym spaces.
Meanwhile Ray Bricknell, MD of cloud rating service Behind Every Cloud was on hand to throw a few cats among the pigeons, while Computing News Editor Graeme Burton brought the pie charts.
If you're looking to find out how best to manage public sector data in a secure cloud environment, have security concerns or want the best definition of what "multicloud" actually means, you're in the safest hands.
Cloud Mix and Match - Getting the Balance Right is available for free, after filling out a short and simple registration form.
