Updating network infrastructure
Ninety percent of respondents agreed that legacy network infrastructure cannot keep up with the demands of modern network infrastructure.
More healthcare organizations are considering and deploying cloud-based solutions for their infrastructure and many are met with networking roadblocks that can’t be resolved without upgrading the network.
The role of cloud computing is changing the way infrastructures are designed and implemented.
Where traditional, business-owned data centers are private, capital-intensive resources, cloud computing enables organizations to access a cloud provider's data center infrastructure and services for a fee.
Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed reported that they experience cloud-related network issues caused by their legacy infrastructure at least a few times a week.
Ninety-three percent of those respondents stated that it impacts their business at least monthly.
Adopting a cloud solution requires organizations to migrate data from their legacy solution.
The network requirements for data migration, as well as cloud deployments, are much heavier than legacy systems can handle.
When a business engages an ISP for internet access, the ISP typically ties into the data center infrastructure within a dedicated and secured building space.Data center infrastructure often includes the power, cooling and building elements necessary to support data center hardware.The data center hardware infrastructure usually involves servers; storage subsystems; networking devices, like switches, routers and physical cabling; and dedicated network appliances, such as network firewalls.Organizations often have to redo their network infrastructure to move forward with other IT projects.Eighty-five percent of respondents stated that they are several years away from completely leveraging cloud benefits and digital transformation because of their legacy network’s limitations.
