Markley Now

If you read the 2020 technology predictions from Markley, you may have seen the one related to Zero Trust. In the year ahead, we predict that Zero Trust will pervade the internal network – meaning, data privacy and security concerns will impel the hardening of internal infrastructure, for example, to include data encryption both in-flight and at-rest. Further, hybrid architectures will force IT organizations to re-evaluate their concept of the 'internal network' and consider Internet-independent private network alternatives.
Building a next generation data center isn’t within reach for every company -- from cooling to maintenance to employing staff around the clock, sometimes the juice is simply not worth the squeeze. That’s where colocation comes in. Colocation can match and exceed your IT and business requirements without the significant upfront capital costs and long-term operating expenses.
Organizations have no shortage of data storage and compute options -- from pure public and private cloud strategies to multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud and on-premise. As more organizations migrate workloads to various forms of cloud deployments and make choices for the sake of speed in innovation, understanding threats to data security in the cloud has never been more important.
A regular topic of discussion on this blog has been the growing trend of repatriation from public cloud workloads and organizations moving toward hybrid and multi-cloud strategies. By allowing workloads to move between environments as computing needs and costs change, organizations enjoy greater data deployment options, a higher level of flexibility and more ROI-friendly computing environments.
