Dropbox’s exodus from Amazon’s cloud empire has puzzled many. The arrangement worked well for the company. It did not have to worry about owning and operating its own data centers to store the ever-increasing data of its customers. Why then did Dropbox get off Amazon’s cloud platform?
What Dropbox has done is not new. Companies such as Google have built their own systems, giving them the freedom to innovate their way to success without being tethered to someone else’s system using bimodal IT. Dropbox’s example of moving off a public cloud platform may not be suitable for all companies but the messages of this example is obvious: you use technology – developed by you or by a cutting edge service provider – to make sure that your business expansion and continuity is ensured.
At Alpha7, Enterprise businesses have the flexibility of integrating their legacy systems to Alpha7’s A7 AppsConnect through white-labeling the platform for internal use, turning it into a private cloud, while still being able to harness the power of public cloud using the bi-modal IT concept.
