The good news is that we’re having far fewer conversations about the cloud displacing the data center. Based on various reports, research, and findings, we finally see a new maturity level for the cloud and data center market. It’s a maturity that translates to a deeper understanding of what needs to be on-premises and what should live in the cloud.
In our 2021 State of the Data Center Report, we found that more than half of respondents (58%) reported noticing a trend for organizations to move away from the public cloud and look to colocation or private data centers. It’s important to note that the cloud isn’t going anywhere. However, there are still real concerns regarding how enterprises want to use cloud computing.
