Until recently the world of IT was going gaga over public cloud computing. The IT guys were blindsided by the possibilities the public clouds offered. But in 2010, when some of the IT directors blew the whistle on security concerns of public clouds, the focus shifted to private clouds. And now we have something called ‘cloudburst’ staring right at us.
But what is a cloudburst? Cloudburst is a strategy wherein the enterprises when they run out of capacity on their internal cloud resources pass on the additional workload to the external resources. This ‘bursting’ of additional workload from internal to external resources is called cloudburst.
