According to the Uptime Institute 70% of enterprise workloads are running in corporate data centers. Colocation data centers have 20% of enterprise applications, and cloud providers have 9%.
In fact, colocation providers will get a double hit from the enterprise. First, workloads will move directly from enterprise data centers to colocation data centers. Second, enterprise workloads that move to public cloud providers will cause those cloud companies to need more servers, storage, and potentially more colocation data center capacity.
If you are an enterprise with in house data centers, it’s time to start scenario planning for migrating your apps and data to colocation data centers and the cloud. This webinar will help you get started.
Kelly Morgan, Vice President Services from 451 Research, is one of the leading industry analysts looking after the data center space. In the webinar, Kelly presents data from the 451 Voice of the Enterprise Survey that you can use to build the strategy and business case for workload migration.
