The hybrid cloud market is exploding as a growing number of enterprises across all verticals are shifting applications and workloads to the cloud to increase efficiency and flexibility. In fact, according to research firm, MarketsandMarkets, the hybrid cloud market is expected to surpass $91 billion by 2021, nearly tripling in size since 2016. As the market becomes increasingly saturated with cloud providers, remaining at the forefront of the hybrid cloud services industry is no easy task.

Seeking to build upon its continued growth and success and to strengthen its position within the cloud industry as a leading enterprise hybrid cloud solution provider, Unitas Global recently appointed Jarrett Appleby to its board of directors.
