Unlock True Flexibility.

Turn hybrid aspirations into hybrid reality with Macquarie Flex.

In the world of cloud, one size doesn’t fit all.

More than half of global data is stored in public clouds like Microsoft Azure, and with good reason. Businesses can unlock scalability, flexibility and access to a wide array of innovative services and technologies – all without the upfront investment of physical infrastructure.

However, some workloads are better suited to a private cloud. Perhaps you’ve got data with specific security and compliance needs; or operational workloads that need to be at the edge of your operations, close to the mission-critical work and equipment that makes your business tick.

Overall, the hybrid cloud value proposition is clear: when you’ve got the right workload in the right place, you’ll reap the benefits of each environment and avoid any pitfalls.

However, in reality, getting hybrid cloud “right” can be challenging. You’ll need to ensure seamless integration between on-premises and cloud infrastructure, and manage complex data security and compliance issues across environments – all without compromising performance and end-user experience.
