Reality Check #5: In-House Compute Power Also Drives InnovationWhile on-demand compute capacity is very compelling for business experiments, the reality is that with virtualization, on-demand can be delivered publicly or privately. If, for example, a company has $7 million in virtualized infrastructure in place to serve its baseline needs, wouldn't it want to tap into reserve or excess capacity, as available, to support research? This is another case where we see all-cloud enterprises as the exception rather than the rule.
So the question is, do you have excess, quickly available capacity internally, or do you need to turn to the public cloud? Both options make sense. If you need big capacity that outstrips what you have available internally, public cloud wins.
