While the cloud brings vast benefits, there are real challenges that must be addressed to ensure its full potential is realized. Ensuring data autonomy while avoiding vendor lock-in is critical to succeeding. If you want to be agile, you must architect accordingly.

So how do you eliminate the potential drawbacks to cloud adoption, while ensuring architectural flexibility moving forward?

An Active Everywhere database provides a consistent data fabric between on-premises data centers and public clouds, enabling organizations to effortlessly accelerate their hybrid cloud deployments.
