To establish a competitive advantage, organizations further their digital transformation by embracing cloud capabilities and redesigning their IT environments to meet diverse needs. As a result, many organizations end up operating workloads across multiple public clouds, their on-premises environments, as well as offpremises private clouds in colocation facilities.
Why is operating multiple IT environments becoming more common? Simply put, one cloud does not, in fact, fit all. It’s not uncommon for an organization to determine that certain workloads could benefit from the scalability, flexibility, and on-demand nature that public cloud offers—but also decide that other workloads need the control, security, and high performance that remains the cornerstone of private cloud. To find this blend of both environments, many are turning to colocation facilities.
