How To Simplify A Hybrid Cloud Deployment

The evolution of cloud has seen many businesses move from private to public cloud platforms, and it has become evident that while some workloads and applications require a private, dedicated environment, others operate more efficiently on a public cloud platform.

No cloud is a one-size-fits-all solution, so increasingly we see organizations adopt hybrid or multi-cloud infrastructures to support varying requirements for different business units. This raises the question of where to begin to simplify enterprise IT architecture. Often, the best starting point may be foundational – the data center.

How Colocation Supports Multi-Cloud Solutions

Rather than distributing the IT architecture across a growing number of data centers many businesses find value by locating the enterprise layer of their architecture in the same data center as the cloud providers they employ today, and establishing direct connections to cloud service providers.

The resulting solution achieves higher performance at a lower total cost by providing the following key benefits:

  • Enhances business performance by eliminating or reducing latency inherent in connecting and integrating multiple clouds and supporting service providers
  • Reduces cost and complexity by reducing the number of network connections required to support the architecture
  • Ensures competitive pricing on a wide array of network products connecting the enterprise premises to the network-rich, cloud-enabled data center
  • Enables flexibility in the enterprise architecture by ensuring that changes can be supported on a real-time basis
