Leave Legacy Restrictions Behind
The second major wave of public cloud expansion is being driven by the explosive growth of real-time applications that require processing closer to the source of data generation; addressing latency, bandwidth, data privacy and autonomy requirements (e.g. IoT use cases such as autonomous cars, AI processing for enhanced reality in retail and healthcare, Adtech). Legacy network offerings underserve the companies delivering this distributed cloud infrastructure at regional/local points of presence (POPs); both architecturally and economically. This results in expensive, high touch operational models and overbuilt infrastructure that is unable to deliver on the public cloud value prop of low-cost business agility to create new markets and respond to changing markets quickly.
