The public cloud is evolving rapidly as a data management platform. New technologies are breaking down the barrier between public cloud and on-prem environments to make hybrid operation a reality. Virtualization advances are raising efficiency and offer new approaches to old problems, like database high availability. At VMware these are not future promises but deployed reality that provide businesses with new options for managing data in the cloud.
