Hyper-convergence has nearly matched the agility and scalability of the public cloud, so the decision becomes more of a business one: Should you own or rent your infrastructure? At Equinix, we see nearly all of our Fortune 5000 customers choosing both. Being able to deploy workloads in either fashion and move them back and forth is where everyone wants to be - this is a true hybrid cloud.
An interesting eWeek slideshow combines industry insight from a variety of sources, including Gartner, Dimensional Research and Equinix’s own Chris Sharp, to conclude that 2015 will be a watershed year for the hybrid cloud, or, more accurately, the multi-cloud.
Here are some critical trends in 2015 that we believe are making cloud more integral than ever in how companies conduct business well into the future.
Equinix today announced it will provide direct enterprise access to Google Cloud Platform through the Equinix Cloud Exchange in 15 global markets.
