For two years in a row, the AFCOM State of the Data Center report has indicated that the majority of respondents are seeing cloud repatriation. That is, these workloads are leaving traditional cloud providers and moving into hyperscale and multi-tenant data centers. In a digitally connected society, access to critical resources and key applications is a must. So, it's important to understand the true balance between cloud and data center workload deployment.

In this session, we'll discuss cloud repatriation, why it's happening, how to prepare, and where to find balance between cloud and the data center. Specifically, we'll discuss:

- The state of cloud and the data center: Yes, they can get along
