Hybrid cloud usage is growing faster than either the private or public cloud. In a large study conducted this year by Insight Avenue on behalf of vendor Suse, 66 percent of respondents expected hybrid cloud growth to continue, compared to 55 percent for private cloud and 36 percent for public cloud. And the hybrid cloud market is expected to grow from $33.3 billion in 2016 to $91.7 billion by 2021, at an annual rate of more than 22 percent, according to research firm MarketsandMarkets.Part and parcel of a hybrid cloud strategy is hybrid storage.

All the traditional enterprise system vendors (e.g., SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, IBM) have a cloud strategy and product offerings. But not all vendors have the same vision. Recently, Google and Microsoft announced enterprise-focused offerings to lure clients to their cloud-based suites. Google and Microsoft will be fierce competitors in this space, but coming from differing backgrounds, they have divergent offerings.Google for its part has always been a massive cloud player. But its focus on the consumer -- even as it tried to lure businesses over the past couple of years to its web-based Office competing product, G-Suite, and its collaboration suite, Hangouts -- has been limited in success.
