The death of network hardware appliances — and what it means for your cloud migration

Organizations have traditionally used hardware appliances to make up for the core limitations and vulnerabilities of the Internet—security, performance, and reliability. These appliances have always been expensive and hard to manage. But when they’re used in hybrid cloud infrastructure, they also create serious security gaps and capacity limitations.

This paper outlines those challenges, quantifies their consequences, and proposes cloud-based solutions for improving the speed, affordability, and security of hybrid cloud infrastructure.
