Hybrid cloud: How partners can capitalise on the new data centre agenda?

Customers across Australia are increasing investment around data centre migration and expansion, as end- user money floods into the infrastructure market. As hybrid models become the norm, businesses are seeking channel expertise from the edge to core to cloud, driven by a right workload, right environment approach.

Revealed via EDGE Research, data centre investments rank as a leading priority for customers during the next 12 months, creating opportunity for partners to overlay services and solutions on top.

“Infrastructure is sexy again, it’s that simple,” observed Mark Iles, executive analyst at Tech Research Asia. “In a world where hybrid cloud is king, partners need to ensure they can capitalise on the need for combined private and public cloud solutions.”

In 2018, partners must learn legalities, assume risk and deliver outcome-driven solutions.

This exclusive ARN Exchange will outline the state of the data centre market, outlining key customer investment priorities and future opportunities for partners. Leveraging EDGE Research and market data from leading analyst firm Tech Research Asia, key discussion points include -

  • Overview of the data centre market in Australia
  • Assessing customer infrastructure investment priorities
  • Drawing up a hybrid IT strategy for customers
  • Detailing how partners can add value on top of infrastructure
