How to flex your

capacity like a
boss
9 reasons why flexible
capacity is a better
approach for hybrid IT

August, 2016
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.)

Read on to learn more.

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.

Move from capital
