I had to look it up in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary: Repatriation is “the act or process of restoring or returning someone or something to the country of origin, allegiance, or citizenship; the act of repatriating or the state of being repatriated.”
In cloud computing, this means returning data and applications from the cloud to a traditional enterprise data center or never moving them in the first place. It seems counterproductive, but is it?
In case you haven’t noticed, the price of computing hardware such as storage and processors has gone down a significant degree since cloud computing became a thing around 2010. The cost per GB of hard drive storage went from about $0.11 in 2009 to about $0.03 in 2017, with further reductions in recent years.
