By 2025 cloud-native platforms will serve as the foundation for more than 95% of new digital workloads. Access to mission critical data will no longer be bound by traditional on-premises datacenters as applications, websites, and systems become more reliant on cloud infrastructure. Cloud infrastructure is highly configurable to meet the organization's exact needs, scale, and business capabilities. Traditional investments in IT hardware and on-premises data centers require constant maintenance, facility space, and detailed disaster recovery and failover procedures.
