Thank you for your interest. The {{resourceType}} is now [[ready for download]]

Business success depends on the resiliency, security and flexibility of the infrastructure supporting the software. CIOs must enable this trusted environment with agility and resilience. IDC has mapped out six basic interlocking capabilities that an enterprise needs to build its digital resiliency.

A hybrid cloud infrastructure enables enterprise resiliency by delivering public cloud interconnection at scale. Enterprise customers will benefit from the cloud-adjacency Equinix provides to Microsoft Azure for critical hybrid workloads and applications that require low latency and flexibility.

Highlights

  • Asia-Pacific region is ahead in digital resiliency investment
  • Interdependencies between applications and data will rise dramatically for enterprises
  • IDC predicts 50% of enterprise applications will be containerized
  • Learn the need for interconnected cloud strategy to achieve enterprise resiliency
Interconnected cloud architectures are important because cloud-native applications and hybrid/multi-cloud infrastructure resources can no longer be adequately managed using traditional configuration, migration, troubleshooting, monitoring and change control strategies.
