Description

If any enterprises or technology pundits still doubted that hybrid cloud is the dominant IT model, last week’s announcement of AWS Outposts will change their minds. Amazon Web Services (AWS), the market leader and de facto inventor of the public cloud, surprised many in the market by launching a hybrid cloud solution that extends the company’s cloud into the enterprise data center.

The announcement signals a shift in strategy and operating model for AWS. Long a proponent of the idea that the public cloud would replace private enterprise data centers, AWS is now acknowledging that some enterprise workloads need to remain on-premises, primarily to avoid network latency.

In this report, Stratecast reviews the AWS Outposts announcement. Using data from the 2018 Frost & Sullivan Cloud User Survey, we consider how the offering meets IT leaders’ expectations for hybrid cloud solutions. Finally, we identify gaps that AWS should fill as it continues to expand its on-premises presence.
