Cloud optimization: Alternative soultions to cloud repatriation

Rising cloud costs are driving many companies to consider repatriating cloud apps back to on-premise environments. In this episode, David Linthicum and The CTO Advisor founder Keith Townsend discuss why repatriation might not always be the best option. Keith believes that the better choice is to optimize in cloud. To start the process, define what optimization means to you and pick strategies that fit your situation and budget, then get the right team and take things cloud native when you can.


How do we actually save money in the public cloud if repatriation isn't an option or something that we don't desire to do? And the best thing to do is to do...is optimize in place.

Keith Townsend is the principal of The CTO Advisor LLC and founder of TheCTOAdvisor.com. He has more than 18 years of related experience designing, implementing and managing data center technologies. His areas of expertise include virtualization, networking, and storage solutions for Fortune 500 organizations.
