What's interesting about AWS, [is] AWS will give you your utilization on VMs for performance. To get memory, to get network, to get everything else -- you have to pay for those APIs.

One of the problems AWS has is they can't predict usage. So they can't guarantee a performance at all their data centers. And this is where tools like HPE's OneSphere provide insight into on-premise and public cloud regarding performance, availability and usage. I think this is one of the next big holy grails in software defined, is this intelligence that tells you where and why it should run a workload. Not every AWS data center is always going to give you the same performance. [An example] is noisy neighbors. A noisy neighbor could be chewing up a bunch of cycles in the data center. But if you can understand that and say, 'Okay, when [my noisy neighbor] is in town, I'm going to move my workload to AWS West because I know it's not as noisy over there during this part of the week.' … And this is where lines of business can start to make really, really intelligent decisions.
