To read the tech trade press, you'd think AWS, Microsoft and Google are in the midst of a winner-take-all battle for the cloud. It's a zero-sum game and only one public cloud provider will survive & thrive. Turns out, that's not the case. A new survey confirms what many of us already believed: Most enterprises use two or more cloud providers and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
In this episode of Pivotal Insights, guest Jared Ruckle, a member of the Pivotal Cloud Foundry product marketing team, joins Dormain and Jeff to break down the findings of the new survey and what they say about the future of the cloud in the enterprise.
