A Colocation Cloud Journey with Flexibility and Peace of Mind

As organizations across the global are experiencing digital transformation at rapid speeds, many have started to migrate to the cloud for some data storage needs, keeping other data stored on-prem. Others are balancing their workloads across colocation, on-premises, public cloud, and private cloud environments. However, this is a costly hybrid approach that can be limiting for organizations. 

As a solution, many organizations today are looking to outsource their data center requirements and data workloads to remote colocation facilities while still balancing their overall hybrid cloud operating model. Doing so can help reach transformation goals, while bringing the agility and velocity of the public cloud.
