NOT ALL CLOUDS ARE CREATED EQUAL
Applications and their associated data are now truly divorced from the hardware they are running on. This presents a world of choice to IT professionals on how best to provide the business critical services that they need to succeed and thrive. Consuming an application as a service, or hosting it on premise, in private, or public clouds or indeed a hybrid of the above are all viable options and all suit different types of workload, as well as cost and compliance requirements.
Until very recently, the question was often "which cloud solution would you adopt?" But as the Cloud market matures, it has become clear that each are better suited to different use cases, so the right cloud solution for your customers will often now be a blend or combination.
We have interconnected our network to ensure that we can meet this demand for a wide range of solutions, allowing our partners the flexibility they need to provide the solutions that their customers require.
