The growth of the public cloud market is obvious to everyone. But what’s less well known is that enterprises are still growing the infrastructure and services they run for themselves. A host of reasons are given for why companies can't use public cloud solutions, but do these reasons stack up?

This talk analyses the concerns around the use of public cloud, including concerns about vendor lock-in. I'll also look at what makes cloud work (or not), we'll see why private clouds often fail to deliver.

What will the audience learn from this talk?
That private cloud is normally a bad idea, and Kubernetes probably won’t save it. We’ll also cover directly concerns about vendor lock-in, and give you some framing for helping decide when, and how, to buy into limitations placed on you by a vendor.
