RightScale has deep experience with a wide range of cloud providers, so customers often ask us for advice on which public and private clouds are right for their use cases. While there is no one right answer, we share an evaluation framework for selecting a portfolio of clouds that meets your strategic needs. We provide an in-depth look at how to align your cloud infrastructure selection with your technical and business requirements. 1. How many clouds will you need? 2. How should you build a cloud portfolio? 3. Public, private, or hybrid? Which type is best for each use case 4. Six considerations for selecting the right cloud
