When the concept of the “cloud” came out, many companies were hesitant to adopt the policies and technologies required to take advantage of the concept. These companies had common concerns of the cloud like security, hardware/software reliability, and justifying implementation of the cloud after developing an on-premises solution. Some of the concerns were answered with the development and building of massive data centers, which provided high-end security and hardware redundancy. Without response to other questions, however, it seemed as though “cloud” would be more of a fad than the future, although the concept had been tremendously promising.
Solution to resolve the last set of concerns would seem to fall short as cloud options would come online that made promises they couldn't deliver, costing far more than initially estimated, or failing to be as reliable on the software side as advertised. A first look at VMware cloud raised doubts of this solution being any different than the others. Still, VMware leans heavily on its history as a technology giant to gain traction and credibility. Their three versions of the cloud were simple enough to ease concerns- the Public Cloud, Private or Hybrid.
