Data centres are transforming into global Cloud and Interconnect hubs, which means there are a lot of concerns around direct Cloud connectivity.
However, as Cloud becomes mainstream and more Cloud service providers joining the marketplace, there is one solution businesses should look to: a Hybrid Cloud strategy.
Hybrid Cloud Is Here to Stay
There are multitude of considerations when building a Cloud environment. Hybrid cloud is still the preferred choice by many businesses today. While some of them might be managing legacy infrastructure, there are obvious benefits in adopting a hybrid cloud strategy – security, reliability, flexibility and agility.
A Microsoft survey conducted in January 2018 showed that a total of 67% of the 1,700 respondents are now using or planning to deploy a hybrid cloud. Interestingly, the benefits of hybrid cloud differs from region to region. For instance, US respondents are looking at the benefit of scalability while their counterparts in the UK and Germany cited security as the top benefit.
