Hybrid clouds are a mix of private and public cloud implementations that guarantee agility and scalability. But, the dependency on just one network of servers, compliance issues and network complexities can lead to technical glitches or even security mishaps.
A distributed cloud concept has geographically dispersed infrastructure that extends cloud services to a much wider audience. This enables low latency computing with reduced technical errors.
Such benefits make the distributed cloud concept a smart choice for CIOs and help move to the next step of cloud evolution.
What are some of the major improvements the distributed cloud concept delivers, in comparison to hybrid clouds?
- Minimal risk of control plane inefficiencies or global network-related outages
- Elimination of latency issues leading to improved performance
- Control plane that is consistent from public to private cloud that can be extended across both environments
To get deeper insights, read this Gartner report that we believe underscores how a combination of both hybrid and distributed cloud models will enable CIOs to build a firmer cloud foundation.
