How direct-access solutions can speed up cloud adoption

1 Summary

The effect of internet avoidance on cloud adoption

Startups are widely adopting cloud computing, but often they deal with disproportionate infrastructure costs or cloud solutions that require completely revamped infrastructure. Established enterprises have been slow to embrace cloud computing for their own reasons, including security, speed of access to cloud resources, and runaway network costs.

This paper will review the challenges that face both high-­growth startups and established enterprises and then will offer various options for addressing these challenges.

The key challenges (with solutions listed below each challenge) are:

Network

  • Improved latency
  • Better uptime

Cost

  • Predictable bills

Security

  • Isolation
  • Controlled access
Internet-connected use vs. internet-avoiding use
