I don't think any of us, whether it's in the channel community or vendor community, have to be afraid of public cloud. We just have to make sure that we leverage it for the right use cases. There's going to be private cloud for a long time to come because the cost economics are changing. The whole cloud native, software defined and analytics is changing the cost dynamics of on-premise infrastructure. It is making it more cost effective, easier to deploy, less complex, lower OpEx and CapEx, which means it's going to end up going head to head with public cloud economics. That doesn't mean that public cloud use cases are not there.

Our customers are going to public cloud, so the question is, 'How do we make their journey very easy by providing a common hybrid dashboard that allows them to do multi-cloud on-premise, plus AWS, plus Azure, plus Google? How do they do that from a central location? How would they ensure security, compliance, visibility, monitoring?' Our channel partners can provide that by learning and adopting these solutions to provide those services, whether it's on-premise as well as hybrid.
