Equinix: Hybrid cloud will dominate enterprise deployments
Equinix will share how cloud is driving digital transformation in the MENA region at Cloud MENA
Equinix experts have revealed that hybrid cloud will dominate enterprise deployments in the Middle East and North Africa region.
The data centre company will participate at Cloud MENA and offer insight into hybrid and multi-cloud strategies for visitors. Whilst cloud adoption is increasing, Gartner reports that security and/or privacy concerns continue to be the top inhibitors to public cloud adoption, despite the strong security track record and increased transparency of leading cloud providers."
Jeroen Schlosser, managing director at Equinix MENA, said: "One of the ways businesses can use the cloud more securely is through direct, dedicated interconnections between network and cloud providers and users and data, bypassing the hacking and performance risks of the public internet.
"Moving enterprise IT infrastructure to the edge, where proximate, direct cloud and carrier interconnections can be deployed via growing numbers of concentrated cloud/network provider and business ecosystems, is a great way achieve lower latency. It also brings enterprise IT services closer to globally dispersed employees, partners, customers and things, and the massive amounts of data they create."
Cloud MENA is a cloud focused event for enterprises and SMEs in the MENA region, running on 1 and 2 May, with the aim to help build digital, secure and competitive business with the help of cloud computing.
