Innovative Edge Data Center Strategies for Superior Customer Experience
In today's digital economy, everyone wants instantaneous access to IT resources, applications and data. But enterprises are struggling to meet these ever-expanding expectations while delivering the best end-user experience possible. In three pivotal reports, Forrester sets a new course. In "Strategically Locate Your Next Data Center," Forrester outlines data center strategies that can help you reduce application latency, improve end-user experiences and service, and provide direct connectivity to cloud services. In "Your BT Agenda Demands a Hybrid Cloud Storage Strategy," Forrester maps out how hybrid cloud storage can help you lay the stepping stones for a clear path to a comprehensive cloud computing strategy.
In “Beware the Pitfalls Within Networking for Hybrid Cloud,” Forrester highlights four methods to align your connectivity requirements to your hybrid cloud strategy. By reimagining your data center and storage architectures -- and unlocking the power of interconnection to get closer to the right cloud services, employees, customers, partners and markets -- you can increase customer performance and accelerate your business. See what Forrester has to say.
Laying out the Full Set of Considerations for Cloud Connectivity
While we would all like hybrid cloud configurations to be simple and easy, the current economic, physics, and security realities result in infrastructure integration challenges that can be complex and costly to get right. Setting up the correct types of connections is crucial to meshing public cloud platforms and on-premises resources securely and with predictable quality of service. Even though standard Internet connections may have sufficed in your pilot phase of cloud use, a seamless production hybrid demands more thorough engineering. Success in fusing internal and cloud resources requires a series of interconnected discrete services that offer survivability, dynamically change with business conditions, and meet customer expectations. This report explains how infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals can best match the various transport and connections options available for your cloud maturity level, along with overcoming some of the challenges in an environment that is relatively new and has a limited set of options.
