Our world is becoming increasingly mobile and data driven. Both B2C and B2B business models are challenged to meet the demands of exponential growth or asked to drive it. Unfortunately, existing enterprise IT infrastructure at best struggles to meet the new demands in speed, agility, security, and scalability. At worst, it may completely fail to do so, and potentially cost companies millions in downtime and loss of competitive advantage every year.
As a business enabler, the role of IT continues to grow more critical every day. Tech leaders, from CIOs to CSPs, continually re-strategize in attempt to address new challenges arising from market forces and internal performance and security concerns. Finding a way to future-proof IT strategies to support growth is clearly becoming a necessity. So companies are looking to a hybrid cloud strategy to supplement IT capabilities.
Deploying applications to the cloud to lighten enterprise workloads brings its own set of challenges. Yet, in spite of that, the majority of enterprises are looking to do so as a way to optimize performance, security and latency, with 82% of them already having a hybrid cloud strategy.1 Researchers believe we’ve already breached the cloud adoption midpoint, as 51% of installed workloads being deployed now reside in cloud data centers. Meaning we’re well into the era of hybrid cloud.2
While the cloud can deliver agility, without a strong technical partner to help you navigate the complexities of deployment, you are likely to face failure. Fortunately, data centers are evolving to meet mission-critical demands in IT by serving as a one-stop shop for scale, collocation and interconnection.
