  • Flexible whatnow?

    Flexible capacity means your on-premise capacity scales to accommodate your changing business needs and workloads, and yet you achieve this without upfront investments in hardware (pay as you grow).

    As with the cloud, the concept allows you the convenience to provision capacity in a matter of minutes. (Seriously it is that fast.)

  • 1. You might think every app belongs in the cloud. But some dont.

    Its common to choose the cloud for its agility, simplicity and pay-per-use model. But sometimes the cloud can cause you to inadvertently compromise crucial things like control, security, latency and sovereignty. With flexible capacity of on-premise IT, you have more control over the choice of where to put your workloads.


  • 2. You can get a public cloud experience for on-premises IT. Really.
