ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD AND REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER Hybrid cloud promises to bring the best of both worlds together, allowing businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control you can get from your on-premises infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. By taking advantage of compression and data deduplication you can reduce network latency.

Research firm Markets and Markets has predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities offer many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud, while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to take advantage of their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as provide a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.

Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organization.
