The One Solution

Hybrid Cloud Made Simple

While hybrid cloud computing has become the deployment of choice for many enterprises, it has not been without a variety of network challenges. Complexity in integration has been a major hurdle. In a 2016 Frost & Sullivan survey, 24% of U.S.-based IT decision makers cited “integrating premises-based and cloud environments” among their top-three data centre challenges.

Today, secure, private connections and solutions like our Connected Campus, and Service Exchange, powered by Megaport, are making some of the challenges of Hybrid cloud adoption a thing of the past by enabling data centre providers to pull together more of the critical elements into a more comprehensive solution. In doing so, they enable you to more easily and effectively create your hybrid multi-cloud architecture.
