Overview

Multi Cloud Architecture in Modern Datacenters - Are You Ready for The Cloud Era?

The cloud and datacenter market in Middle East and Africa (MEA) continue to grow as digital transformation (DX) becomes the focus of most organizations in the region. Organizations in the region are positively inclined toward multi-cloud environments, combining private and public cloud. Many organizations and service providers are building private cloud infrastructure and hosting public cloud environments to support their business transformation journey. Infrastructures are rapidly evolving as digital transformation initiatives drive the need for greater IT agility, developer-friendly infrastructure, and industrial robustness at scale. Digital workloads such as Big Data and the Internet of Things are driving new designs for datacenter architectures, as well as demands for ever greater data security.

To stay competitive in today’s software-driven economy, enterprises MUST be cloud-native, to support their digital transformation.

By thinking proactively about IT strategies, especially for cloud adoption, applications can be built and positioned for sustainable success.

Jitendra Kapoor
Research Director, Telecommunications & IT Services – IDC

Private clouds are currently the most popular choice in the region, mostly due to traditional IT mindsets that value the on-premises hosting of assets. The lack of clear data-security regulations in the region is another reason organizations favor private cloud. Over the past few years the amount of infrastructure dedicated to private cloud buildouts has been steadily increasing.
