With the benefits of the cloud supported by both research and case studies, a growing number of cloud service providers (CSPs) are inundating the market with a wide range of cloud services. However, some of them are not appropriate for all workloads or use cases.
Many can accommodate low-risk workloads but lack the security and performance levels required for legacy production workloads. While great at scale for an enterprise, legacy applications can bow under the weight and complexity of a cloud service provider’s horizontal scale and multi-tenancy. These applications may also require compliance and access controls which newer cloud service providers often can’t provide.
