Cablecos' Role in the Cloud


Published on

Businesses need “brutally efficient cloud-based infrastructure” (CNET News). Businesses demand long-term, cost-effective, and customized cloud computing solutions. Businesses know what they want—and it’s the role of the cloud provider to meet those demands. But not all cloud providers are created equal. By the end of this year, 60% of server workload is expected to be virtualized. By 2017, global cloud traffic is expected to reach 5.3 zettabytes. Businesses need robust, forward-thinking cloud providers who offer customized services and wide-ranging expertise. Increasingly, the top-performing cloud providers are cablecos. See the infographic to find out why.
