Enterprise infrastructure is expanding from on-premises into the cloud. Cloud services reduce time to market for application development teams and provide burstable resources for variable workloads. However, hybrid cloud infrastructure is increasing network complexity, not reducing it.

This session will examine the problem space of cloud connectivity. We will review some common challenges that organizations face when connecting on-premises datacenters to the cloud. We'll discuss common misconceptions about cloud connectivity and the questions customers need to ask as they design cloud infrastructure. We will also discuss the skills your networking teams need and the resources available to help move your networking infrastructure teams into the hybrid cloud future.
