    Hybrid cloud will get more automated and virtualised in 2017

    Until now, automation in hybrid cloud has mainly been focused on the VM orchestration layer. Click here for more compute power, there for more bandwidth.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dimension Data.

    Interview

    It was long and a lot of people involved to find that they weren't really hiring for the position I applied for. They are disrespectful to candidates with the time wasted during the interview process.
