Gartner - Your Data Center may not be Dead, but it’s Morphing

Thank you for your interest. The {{resourceType}} is now [[available for access]]

According to Gartner, “Workload placement is not only about moving to the cloud, it is about creating a baseline for infrastructure strategy based on workloads rather than physical data centers. This is causing I&O leaders to rethink infrastructure strategies, which have a direct impact on enterprise data centers.”


  • Combine interconnection with high-speed enterprise access to the multitenant data center
  • Bring the enterprise and its applications to the network, not the other way round
  • An ecosystem will be required to enable scalable, agile infrastructures
  • Pick partners based on their vision, capabilities and their partners 
By 2025, 85% of infrastructure strategies will integrate on-premises, colocation, cloud and edge delivery options, compared with 20% in 2020.
