Many companies are migrating to the public cloud for very good reasons. Cloud technology can help you save a lot of money, improve your operation’s flexibility, and open you up to new solutions that make business processes more efficient. But migration isn’t a practical option for businesses with concerns such as:
● Business-critical legacy applications that cannot be migrated to the cloud
● Security or compliance issues brought about by the public cloud’s multitenant structure
● Users having limited control and visibility over the public cloud environment
Such businesses usually use on-premises (on-prem) servers, invest in third-party private clouds, or implement colocation. Colocation, in particular, is a popular option because it offers most of the benefits of on-premises and cloud servers while being a lot easier on a company’s finances.
