On Thursday 14th May, TPG and NEXTDC hosted a boardroom roundtable of current and prospective enterprise customers at NEXTDC’s M1 Melbourne data centre in Port Melbourne to discuss the challenges and opportunities of hybrid cloud.
TPG’s Head of Product Nick Pachos joined NEXTDC’s General Manager of Sales, Southern Region, Lucas Salter, to present their take on the latest trends in colocation and cloud integration as a part of an overall cloud strategy.
A key topic was moving IT closer to the end user by migrating to hybrid cloud.
TPG’s Head of Product Nick Pachos said, “The main inhibitor to outsourcing is speed. This is why our mantra is ‘we make the WAN faster than the LAN’ because our network services allow users to eliminate bottlenecks and facilitate their data being hosted in a reliable, highly connected data centre like M1.”
