The Second Wave of Cloud Computing and Digital Transformation is Here – It’s Hybrid IT
Third-party cloud services are steadily becoming the IT model of choice for many enterprise organizations. Just look at the projected revenue of providers like AWS and Microsoft with annualized run rates of $14.6 billion and $6.8 billion respectively. This growth is proof positive that enterprises are choosing to distribute workloads, yet, many organizations still rely heavily on on-premise or colocation-hosted clouds.
Distributing core business services, applications, and data across cloud environments, however, results in increased complexity for security, infrastructure reliability and resiliency, vendor management, and application visibility. It also raises a couple of fundamental questions:
- What’s the best way to connect to our clouds?
- How do we control costs for data transfer and networking?
CoreSite’s latest e-book, 5 Reasons to Directly Connect Your Hybrid Cloud Solution, details how many enterprises are adopting a solution that directly interconnects to cloud providers within a colocation facility. The eBook also discusses the potential cost and performance advantages that direct connect can create for streamlining hybrid IT connectivity.
Download the eBook now to see why, according to Gartner, 30% of enterprises will connect to clouds via direct connect solutions (WAN and cloud interconnect) by the end of 2019.
