The best of both worlds?
It's not surprising to see organizations start to mull over hybrid clouds as they start to get used to the inner workings of a virtualized/cloud environment.  There are many reasons why they would want to pull some of their data in-house, not just for security, but for access to other in-house systems that are using this data.  The real question is whether the ability to have more flat (non-siloed) environments will mean organiations continue to invest heavily in public cloud and keep the hybrid environment running, or if they will still see more benefit to having a fully private cloud in-house as the adoption of cloud continues to push the overall infrastructure costs down.

Re: The best of both worlds?
I think the key point is about the balance of public and private sections. Big organizations have the concern for security to rely on public cloud. For private cloud, the O&M cost will be high. Furthermore, if all organizations start to turn to private one, the silo will start to form. The hybrid cloud is a good concept but it really depends how it's implemented in reality.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
