The explosion of cloud computing adoption across a broad spectrum of industries and applications has helped solidify the establishment of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) as a viable, cost-effective and scalable model for delivering IT services to the enterprise. While the adoption of public cloud resources has proven effective across a broad set of use cases, some internal applications and services are not ready to move to the public cloud. In order to solve for this, organizations are taking a phased approach which let's them adopt cloud-style architectures utilizing their existing on-premise compute, storage and network resources which provide capabilities and performance above and beyond what was previously available in traditional and virtualized data centers.
