Snowden’s NSA revelations – a good thing after all? Asks vCHS head Bill Fathers

Edward Snowden’s revelations about the NSA have caused lots of industry debate, with a consensus that it was bad news for public cloud.

But this week our Senior VP and GM of Hybrid Cloud Service, Bill Fathers, sought to dispel the myth, suggesting that for hybrid clouds the revelations were actually a good thing. In an interview with Gigaom’s Barb Darrow, Bill said:

“The Snowden impact and the impact that has had on the conversations we are having with clients has been fascinating.

“There is now universal acceptance that public clouds will outstrip data centers in terms of performance, security and economics.”

Bill also talks about how VMware vCloud Hybrid Service  is all about ensuring organisations’ on and off premise infrastructures are ‘utterly compatible’, as well as highlighting vCHS’s openness in supporting different operating systems, database environments or even underlying hardware capability.

To hear more, watch Bill’s interview on the Gigaom Structure show below, and check out Simon Sharwood’s piece on the Register.
