The 2014 Ten Best list demonstrates the rise of European motorcycle manufacturers, as seven of the top ten motorcycles hailed from Austria, Germany or Italy.

The coveted "Best Superbike" title went to Italian manufacturer Ducati for its 1199 Superleggera. German-based BMW placed multiple models on the list for the fourth consecutive year, including the "Sport Touring" category, which it took in each of those years. Closing out the European invasion was Austrian manufacturer KTM, emerging as the bike to beat in the "Dual-Sport/Enduro," "Open-Class Streetbike" and "Adventure Bike" categories. A notable non-European winner was the reborn American-made brand Indian with its Chief Classic, chosen as "Best Cruiser."

You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
