True – a complete cloud migration would be more spectacular. With a combined Public Cloud/ colocation approach you can get rid of at least one outdated method: the provision of electricity, air conditioning, access security, and reliability are no longer parameters that differentiate between competitors. So why waste your own capacities on it?
Though Public Cloud plus colocation is not definitively convincing, the concept does provide tangible added value, holistic prospects for the complete IT inventory and – let’s not forget – simplicity. It’s not rocket science, but it’s pragmatic. Worth a thought, right?
