While enterprise cloud adoption continues to grow rapidly, a number of significant obstacles remain for enterprise deployments, including concerns about security, latency, cost, expertise and performance. Especially as edge computing becomes more prevalent, and enterprises rush to reach customers 'where they are.'
The cloud offers enterprises many advantages such as agility, scalability, resiliency, and automation. And according to RightScale’s 2019 State of the Cloud report, 94% of enterprises surveyed are now deploying the cloud in their businesses. Following the rise of the cloud has been a shift to edge computing and hyper-local resources.
As such, a hybrid, multi-cloud strategy is a new reality for most enterprises, and an integrated localized offering that bundles solutions from best of breed providers can help solve some of these cloud migration challenges.
Today, colocation providers like EdgeConneX are working with leading cloud and IT service providers to bring their solutions to the edge, deployed in close proximity to enterprises, so they can easily access secure, local connectivity to the cloud for any and all of their workloads.
This new white paper from EdgeConnex exploring edge computing for the cloud offers an in-depth look at what factors have driven the cloud to the mainstream, the challenges to enterprise cloud adoption, security concerns, spend, the benefits of an integrated cloud solution and more.
