Challenges such as governance, security, talent management, cost and vendor lock-in are some of the biggest roadblocks on the path to comprehensive cloud management. Plus, with the fast-and-furious pace of workloads, cloud adoption can quickly go from a dream IT initiative into a nightmare of out-of-control costs, a lack of adherence to internal policies and controls, reliability challenges, and, in the worst cases, data breaches and regulatory fines.
One trailblazer in this space is Joe Kinsella, CTO and Founder of CloudHealth Technologies and we recently had an exclusive interview with him during the acquisition of his firm by VMWare. The cloud services management company is touting a new tagline, "Better Together." referring to taking the best of virtualization and cloud and coupling it with what CloudHealth does best.
