COLO, WHOLO and CLOUD Delivery

Cloud service providers are driving the demand for colocation growth.
Thus it can be seen that the datacenter ecosystem is changing:
– winners in this transformation are colocation and cloud providers. We know where the cloud are going…
– at the same time more traditional hosting and Managed IT providers are transforming towards cloud with strong dependency to colocation
Colocation providers “are becoming” Wholesale Cloud providers with advanced “Cloud Delivery” service portfolio.
