Cloud adoption has grown over the past 5 years and according to Forrester, about half of the US and European enterprise IT decision-makers report that their companies use Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The Hybrid model of implementing IaaS is particularly enticing for US and European companies. 28% of hardware decision-makers report using a Hybrid Cloud strategy for server resources today, and expect 45% by 2016. The major question regarding moving their application to the Cloud would be "How to secure my customer's level of applications services expectations and how to ensure the agreed SLAs are respected?"
