Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Larry Meyer | June 20, 2013 12:46 pm

Hybrid cloud[1] is a major discussion point at this year’s GigaOm Structure, which continues today in San Francisco.

Rackspace CTO John Engates, HubSpot CIO Jim O’Neill and Fidelity[2] Technology Group Vice President Keith Shinn sat down late yesterday for a panel discussion about how they are using OpenStack-powered private clouds.

Shinn said that Fidelity is working with Rackspace on implementing an OpenStack private cloud[3] as the first step in a hybrid cloud approach for the financial services giant.

O’Neill gave the crowd an update on HubSpot’s successful implementation of hybrid cloud[4] that allows the SaaS marketing platform company to deploy the same image to public cloud, hosted private cloud or bare-metal servers. The move has given HubSpot a four-times increase in efficiency versus the public cloud.
