The risks of maintaining network hardware in a cloud-based world
The death of network hardware appliances — and what it means for your cloud migration
Cloud migration has proven to be an effective strategy for reducing infrastructure costs, improving the availability of data and applications, and increasing operational agility.
However, this migration rarely happens in one fell swoop which brings complications. Specifically, it creates situations where various networking functions remain on-premise. These network hardware appliances just aren’t up to the task of securing and accelerating critical infrastructure in a cloud-focused world.
This white paper outlines the risks of maintaining network hardware in a world moving to cloud-based services and offers strategies for avoiding them. Read on to learn more.
