Organizations are turning to purpose-built cloud-adjacent data centers that offer low-latency connections to critical systems and data to meet the demands of lightning-fast applications and services. Cloud-adjacent infrastructure and storage, such as that offered by Evocative, is shaping the future of hybrid cloud to meet these growing demands.
In addition to the agility and cost-efficiency benefits of the cloud, data resides on secure, dedicated hardware in a cloud-adjacent environment. This best-of-both-worlds infrastructure combines public cloud flexibility with the speed and the power of on-premises, in-country data sovereignty, allowing organizations to meet regulatory compliance requirements.
Equally important, when considering your options not just from an operational perspective but also from a business perspective, cloud adjacency allows you to optimize and predict spend, increase control, improve governance, and maximize efficiency to ensure you get the best return on your investment in your system and data delivery transformation—however and wherever you do business.
Customers expect to have their digitally-connected experiences (and data) served to them safely, without delay or disruption. Similarly, business partners require their digital business processes (and data) to be delivered with real-time access, guaranteed resiliency, and built-in disaster recovery. Cloud-adjacent infrastructure helps in both sets of example cases:
For some organizations, this infrastructure model can be challenging to employ and maintain, as cloud-adjacent infrastructure requires a combination of core elements. While there may be several deployment options available, to meet this specific collection of operating requirements, it is best delivered by a provider you can trust to provide the following components:Bare metal servers enable cloud adjacency:
Bare metal servers are physical servers dedicated to a single tenant, leveraging raw hardware power, and are free from performance impacts that come from shared resources or the virtualization layer. With this, they are ideal for resource-intensive applications that require low latency, as their proximity to the cloud offers capacity, flexibility, scalability, and on-demand burstability to manage fluctuating workloads rapidly.Colocation delivers robust cloud adjacency services:
Organizations of all shapes and sizes can benefit from adopting cloud adjacency as it provides the public cloud capabilities
customers expect while meeting the operating requirements internal users, partners, and regulators demand.Cloud on-ramps enable cloud adjacency too:
For seamless connectivity between your cloud-adjacent colocation and cloud environment, cloud on-ramps create a direct connection with high bandwidth and low latency—transforming your cloud application experience.
