What is the next generation cloud operating model?

By: Avinash Joshi

    Security and latency or App performance is always a challenge that concerns business owners to migrate to the cloud. No matter who is the provider. Also, nearest Cloud zone/DC to End Users data connectivity should be encrypted but this should not impact the app performance..here budget comes into the picture. We should have strong pre and post checks in place for any application migration to the cloud.
