In today’s rapidly evolving business environment, organizations aren’t just using one type of cloud infrastructure to run their business. They are often investing in several different types, from private cloud (on-premises or hosted) to public cloud, to hybrid cloud as they consider options to enhance or replace traditional data centers. 

In this white paper, IDC provides considerations and a framework for making workload-based decisions about which cloud infrastructure approach to use to drive the greatest business value. In addition to qualitative factors, it also compares the five-year total cost of ownership related to the type and location of the infrastructure required to run a predetermined, representative set of enterprise workloads.
