Choosing the Right Location for Near-Cloud Services
We know that not every organization is ready for a 100% migration to the cloud, but that doesn’t mean that leveraging the cloud for the entirety of your workload isn’t possible.
In fact, a very simple strategy exists which allows you to do just that: move your workloads to a “near-cloud” hosting location rather than directly to the cloud. This strategy lets you enable low-latency and high-speed connectivity that delivers the best connectivity and performance levels for your hybrid workload. This approach revolutionizes your cloud experience, providing total control over your cloud migration journey while preventing negative impacts on your end-user experience.
