More and more, Intel is offering consumer-facing web services, like the AppUp store. That creates new challenges – consumers expect web services to be always available, and demand for services can spike or drop without warning. To meet these challenges, Intel is exploring a hybrid cloud – a mix of public and private clouds. In this podcast we hear from Das Kamhout, Intel IT Cloud Lead Engineer. He talks about the process of deciding on a hybrid approach, the challenges it presented for Intel IT, and the way the hybrid cloud points Intel toward the future.
