Jim Whitehurst, Red Hat president and CEO, has said companies now can run a private cloud platform at the same cost for a public cloud environment, Network World reported Friday.
Fredric Paul writes that Whitehurst highlighted the size an enterprise must be in order to operate a data center.
“The question is, how big does an enterprise need to be to reach an efficient scale for a data center? At what scale can an enterprise run a data center with the same or lower cost as Amazon?“ Whitehurst told the publication.
Whitehurst said chief information officers also take into consideration the strategies to manage applications across various platforms, according to the report.
