Multicloud requirements and implementations: from users, developer, service providers

We are no longer debating whether it's going to be a private cloud, public cloud, or hybrid cloud in future IT. Multiclouds will be the defacto standard in enterprises. In this panel, we have invited a public cloud service provider, DT, a couple distro providers: Red Hat, and Mirantis, and a large multicloud user: CERN to give us some examples of multicloud use cases, the requirements and implementation experiences and insights of multiclouds with the audience.

What can I expect to learn?

The use cases of multiclouds, the requirements and implementation insights of multiclouds provided by users and service providers
