The rise of distributed applications and computing will challenge IT organizations to implement a Distributed Cloud architecture – especially those that need to operate on a national or global scale. But designing and operating a Distributed Cloud is complex due to the unique environments at each leading cloud provider (e.g. AWS, Azure, Google), as well as the particular aspects of an enterprise’s edge computing and private cloud deployments. Delivering the benefits of Distributed Cloud requires a new architecture and concept. IT organizations need to combine the richness and agility of IaaS resources with the security, visibility and control of a dedicated network and security layer. For digital transformation at the edge, they need a simple approach to infrastructure and application management with full cloud agility and scalability. Through applying a new architecture for network and application infrastructure, Distributed Cloud can provide a consistent operating model across multiple cloud environments and heterogeneous edge locations. It enables applications to talk to each other regardless of location or type of cloud. And it provides IT organizations the flexibility to easily migrate their workloads, to scale resources up or down and the automation tools to operate at scale.
