Nigeria’s Layer3 has expanded its portfolio with a new multicloud orchestration platform designed to simplify deployment of enterprise workloads, managed services and third-party cloud resources.
The expansion, according o the company is in tandem with its quest to deliver on its promise to empower digital transformation for enterprise customers.
Thus, in advancing the course, the company decided to organize a two-day workshop with the theme “Simplify Your Path to a Secure and Automated Path to Multicloud” for a diverse group of companies from various industries.
The workshop, which was held at the Lagos Intercontinental Hotel in collaboration with Juniper Networks, one of the global leaders in networking, highlighted the steps organizations should take when planning their multicloud migration strategies.
“The promise of multicloud is to deliver an infrastructure that is secure, ubiquitous, reliable and fungible and where the migration of workloads will be a simple and intuitive process,” said stated Godwin Michaels, Layer3’s Head of Engineering.
He noted that this value proposition justifies the increasing adoption of multicloud infrastructure solutions, pointing out some of its advantages to include an increase in ROI, superior security, low latency, end-to-end visibility and control, autonomy and less disaster prone.
Michaels promised that Layer3 will help support the evolution of the operations of organizations smoothly to enable them to be more agile and automated.
Companies are moving more workloads from on-premises to the cloud to keep up with the need for agility and more flexibility. A recent study conducted by PwC found that a majority of enterprise workloads currently on-premises are expected to migrate to the public cloud in the next one to three years. As a result, enterprises will need to adopt even greater multicloud strategies as workloads become more distributed across IT environments.
To eliminate roadblocks that could prevent enterprises from realizing the multicloud promise, end-to-end security and automation must be integrated throughout all places in the network. Juniper’s extended offerings across its data center, campus, branch and cloud portfolio are designed to enable enterprises to migrate to a multicloud architecture on their terms, using natural refresh and expansion activities to meet today’s needs, while also ensuring they are multicloud-ready.
