Maximizing Hybrid Cloud ROI

Posted on March 01, 2018 by James Feasey

It’s no secret that businesses are migrating from on-site data centers to the cloud, but determining the specific cloud strategy most beneficial to the enterprise is still very much a work in progress for many organizations.

As ComputerWeekly will tell you in this recent article on “The road to hybrid cloud storage” – hybrid cloud is the future, yet IT teams continue to face challenges in convincing C-suite decision makers that this path is worth the investment in getting there.

When considering hybrid cloud strategies that offer the strongest ROI, consider whether a provider offers free cross connect between colocation and the cloud, charges for data egressing the cloud when directly connected, provides disaster recovery between colocation equipment and cloud assets in other cities, and offers the ability to connect at layer 2 for easy merging of physical and virtual assets.
